Mexican Slang is a Toronto based trio features vocalist Annabelle Lee, formed as her solo recording project which she recorded music in her attic an releasing her first EP in the summer of 2012. She later enlisted Jimmy Tony Rowlinson (Dilly Dally) on bass and Den Holm on drums in late 2012.
Stream “Fever” below.
Mexican Slang elicits comparison to the likes of Helium and “Babes in Toyland meets Ty Segall”. Lee’s primary focus has been coalescing the power of extremes, by juxtaposing heavy guitars with compelling melodies and contrasting droning psychedelia and noisy garage rock with moments of reverberant serenity. Though drawing personal influence from artists such The Melvins, The Cramps and Rowland S. Howard, Lee is poised to create a distinctive sound all her own.
With the support of Buzz Records, Mexican Slang plans to record a full-length album and tour Canada and the US in the upcoming year. Their haunting noise pop aesthetic and captivating live shows have set them apart, creating a far-reaching, eager and devoted fan base. As for Lee’s poignant lyrical depth, face-melting guitar and impassioned productivity, there seems to be no end in sight.
