Las Nubes: Would Be

Continuously gathering momentum with each fresh release, Miami's Las Nubes return with Tormentas Malsanas, a vibrant mix of garage pop, shoegaze, dreampop, and punk influences. Their latest single and video, Would Be, is a both eerie and energetic number, drawing inspiration from rumors of a live-action Powerpuff Girls series, and is centered around the concept of a former superhero grappling with aging.

Translated as 'unhealthy storms, the anticipated Tormentas Malsanas marks Las Nubes' first album release since their debut SMVT in 2019.

Vocalist Ale Campos comments on Would Be: “There was a rumor going around about a live-action Power Puff Girls series being made by Diablo Cody. It was going to be set in the future and have them portrayed as adults looking back on their lives as crime-fighting little girls who missed out on being kids. I grew up in the ‘90s and PPG was one of my favorite cartoons, so I was really excited about this. One day Emile and I were talking about how cool it would be to write the theme song for the show, so Would Be was the result of that. 

It took about 20 minutes to write. At the time I felt like my best years were flying away before my eyes and I used that as inspiration for what it might feel like to be an aging ex-superhero. For the video I edited an old home movie of my father in his late 40s doing tricks with a soccer ball. Growing up in Argentina, he always dreamed of going pro. Soccer was his first love and he finally had his chance and played professionally for a year before getting seriously injured. He wasn’t able to continue his career in soccer after that, but he always carried the love for the sport in his heart. I felt like the video captured the essence of the song, which is the desire to take back those years you lost and just cherish them.” 

Tormentas Malsanas will be out on June 14th, 2024 via Sweat Records Records.
