(New York, NY): LA's beloved psych-soul four-piece Chicano Batman recently released their highly-anticipated new album ‘Invisible People’ via ATO Records. Pitchfork calls it their “most accessible record” while NPR Music says it's “an incredible leap forward,” and AllMusic praises the way the 12-song collection “twists and morphs with the elegance of a lava lamp.”

Listen and share ‘Invisible People’ here:

Last night, Chicano Batman appeared on Vice News Tonight’s Receiver where they spoke with Dexter Thomas about their “uniquely-of-the-moment record” (LA Times) and answered fan questions.

The four-piece also debuted their music video for “Blank Slate,” filmed at Hollywood's legendary Barefoot Studios. The visual sees Chicano Batman’s Bardo Martinez grooving around the studio that was home to Stevie Wonder, interspersed with empty shots of the City of Angels. 

Watch here:

“Blank Slate is a progressive musical aesthetic for the band,” bassist Eduardo Arenassays. “ The music video superimposes forward moving streetscapes over our studio performance which say less about who the band is but where we are headed. The video offers a glimpse into our band chemistry and shows the ambitious crafting of a future sound.”

Additionally, director George Mays says “the guys told me they envisioned a dark and slightly futuristic art video that represents the idea of moving on from the past and creating a new path forward. They were doing so with their music and in their personal lives, so we edited live footage with shots from around their native LA that we felt captured the artistic movement.”
