Surf’s up! CAPTAIN RICO AND THE GHOST BAND release the retro/rock thrills of their new album: ‘THE FORGOTTEN MEMORY OF THE BEACHES’
In celebration of the new record, the French surf rock trio are pleased to present a radical new video for one of its most exhilarating highlights: “Mexican Road Trip”.
Directed by Sylvain Montet, the video was shot amidst the breathtaking scenery of the La Pierre Saint-Martin mountain ranges in the Pyrenees. It’s stunning visuals follow a fearless longboarder as he makes a nerve-shattering descent through the perilous mountain pass; with Captain Rico sound-tracking him every inch of the way.
An instrumental with Tex-Mex flavours and far-out, exotic arrangements, “Mexican Road Trip” takes inspiration from Captain Rico & The Ghost Band’s passion for travel, touring and discovery. Speaking about the track and video,
“Mexican Road Trip” is just one of 12 rollicking, vintage rock’n’roll nuggets to discover on their new album: ‘THE FORGOTTEN MEMORY OF THE BEACHES’. It’s a nonstop surf-rock album that sees the band take the sounds of 1960s Southern California and give them a rejuvenating new purpose from their base in the South of France.
