At some point you move out of your parents’ house and face that moment of inner crisis – it usually comes in the form of bills. Porter’s newest video “La China” captures those despairing instances, but takes place a few centuries and features an indigenous protagonist who goes through a rollercoaster of self-doubt and realizations during her nomadic life. Rather than trying to find a fixed place, embrace the journey and keep moving on…if your ancestors could do it walking through mountains, deserts, fires, and doppelgangers, you’ve already got the genes:

The synthwave quintet are known for layering psychedelic and chillwave elements over an experimental rock base, yielding a hazy dreamscape where they embrace their cultural roots and modern existentialism. “La China” is from their record, Moctezuma, which came out in August 2014. Porter has a show date coming up:

9/10 – Teatro Metropólitan (Mexico City, Mexico)
