Tijuana Cartel, is proud to release of their new single Nisaba. This electrifying track brings together elements of Flamenco guitar, Cuban percussion, electronic beats, and the sounds of the Australian rainforest, to create a genre-defying sound that is both innovative and accessible.

"We're always looking for ways to push the boundaries of what's possible in music," says lead singer and guitarist Paul George. "While creating Nisaba, we wanted to incorporate the traditional sounds of our travels, as well as the unique rhythms and textures of the Australian rainforest. We spend a lot of time taking walks, photos, videos and playing around with music and sounds in the rainforests around our homes on the Gold Coast and Byron Bay hinterlands." From the calls of native birds to the rustling of leaves, the track creates a sonic landscape that immerses the listener in the beauty of the natural world.

With a focus on live instrumentation and electronic production, Tijuana Cartel creates a unique sound that blends traditional and contemporary elements of music to create an unforgettable listening experience. With a global perspective and a passion for pushing the boundaries of their genre, Tijuana Cartel easily fall across multiple genres, from roots and world music, to organic house.

"We were also really inspired by some of the recent music we'd been sharing between us, acts like Seba Campos and Nicola Cruz" says band member Carey O'Sullivan. "We recorded this mostly separately in our own studios, which is how we write most of the music these days. When we got stuck, we'd email ideas to each other and bounce them back and forth that way. Then occasionally we'd all meet in my studio for a listen, change some of the mix, add some touches, and maybe record some extra percussion to layer in. After playing together for such a long time we have found our own way to write. Paul will arrange the music while I tend to focus on the original ideas and sound design."

The band has been making waves on the live music circuit in Australia, with fans flocking to see their high-energy live shows. Their latest tour for the 2020 album Acid Pony was interrupted by the pandemic, so the band toured Australia and Germany slowly over the past 2.5 years. With most shows selling out, the tour also included festivals such as WOMAD, Bluesfest, Woodford, Nannup and Rootbound.

The popularity of the live show has also influenced the new music the band is producing. As Paul explains, "A lot of feedback we have got recently is that the newer music is representing the live sound better than it had in our early years, so we ran with that feedback and continued."

Their new single Nisaba is sure to be a hit with audiences, as the band continues to push the limits of what's possible in contemporary music.

Nisaba is released through Australian and New ZeaLand label Beat and Path Records exclusively on Spotify and Beatport on Friday 31 March, and is available on all platforms worldwide on Friday 14 April.
