Atmospheric organ, stinging guitar, punchy singing, hard-charging rhythms . . . and the most unlikely (‘The Murder at the Taco Land’) character story song akin to something you’d find on an early Bruce Springsteen album.
Written by Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry, “Maybe I Know” is sparking interest among DJs at Little Steven’s Underground Garage on Sirius XM. The new EP includes “The Murder at the Taco Land,” “Baby I Was Wrong,” “Sometimes the Bridesmaid, Sometimes the Bride” and “El Cucuy.” “Saldana Bros.” is available for download on all major streaming platforms, including Spotify, iTunes, Tidal, and more. Stay tuned for Volume 2, due later this spring.
Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the Chicano garage rockers have garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been profiled in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, the Village Voice, Action, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Alt-Latino” and MTV, and are regulars on SIRIUS XM “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Dave Marsh’s “Kick Out the Jams,” KUTX and Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Roots and Branches of Americana.”
In 2014, the Krayolas were inducted into the Texas Music Office’s South Texas Music Walk of Fame.
