Astro is back!
Today, these Chilean, musica indie pioneers, and one of my favorite bands, release their third album, Chicos de la Luz.
It’s been about 3 years since I’ve heard anything new from these guys, and I was scared when I heard their lead singer, Andres, had a side project he’d been working on… but then the announcement came to my inbox about this new album …
