The Tontons – Magic Hour

Fresh off the release of their second full-length album Make Out King and Other Stories of Love, Houston rockers The Tontons are gaining quite a following South of the border. The upbeat electro-rock sound from guitarist Adam Martinez is addicting when combined with the soulful vocals from Asli Omar and the tight rhythm section made up of Tom Nguyen on bass and Justin Martinez on drums. After tearing up SXSW earlier this month, The Tontons are proving why they deserve an international audience. “Magic Hour”, the debut track on their newest album, opens with flare and snags the listener with a fast-paced rhythm and piercing lead guitar riff. Omar’s sensual vocals are showcased throughout the song, providing a feeling of emotional longing that mixes well with the driving guitar sound. We’re certainly looking forward to hearing more.
