Las Robertas are Latin America’s answer to popular American indie bands like Best Coast, Gliss or even The Breeders. Their brand of indie is often called “chillwave” by the indie press. What may be surprising for many both Latinos and non is that this all girl band is from Costa Rica.
Members Monserrat Vargas and Mercedes Oller met through MySpace. In 2009 Las Robertas formed after coming full circle with Ana M. Valenciano and Lola Miche. The group soon began work on their buzz worthy release Cry Out Loud and have been featured on Hipster Runoff, Neu Magazine (UK) and Gorilla VS. Bear.
Las Robertas will soon be touching down on U.S. soil and better yet, touching down in Austin for this year’s South By Southwest.
