Sitting in a bus at 2am yearning to get home after a long day of exhaustive travelling, my travel companion is this record - the musical form of a wistful look out the window with fast-moving lights flashing past my eyes. De Las Luces is the angelic muse from which the creative senses blossom, a record that can awaken the sleeping writer inside of each and every single one of us - the one who only comes out in the wee hours of the night. In "El Parque ParecĂ­a No Tener Fin", a reverberated guitar, dry drumbeat and a subtle yet omnipresent bassline come together to open a box of musical emotions with nostalgia-inducing sounds and melodies.

Pasar de las Luces is the first full-length from Mint Field, a Mexican duo who play a gloriously downcast form of dream pop. Estrella Sanchez and Amor Amezcua were barely in their twenties when they recorded the album, and their music brilliantly channels the frustration, hopelessness, and sorrow of their young adult years. Their songs are spacious and cloudy, with chiming guitars bathed in effects and longing, angelic vocals.
