Helado Negro Takes On Radio

Roberto Carlos Lange has been making the rounds to promote Helado Negro’s ambient new album Double Youth, a striking yet gentle fourth LP for the band. The artist spoke with Bandcamp Weekly to talk about his influences for the work, citing a childhood in South Florida for the palpable latin and hip-hop feel of the tracks. The album cover, a forgotten childhood picture, sparked the album’s theme of “disjointed memories,” a vibe found in the album’s dreamy tracks and non-central lyrics. The track “Myself On 2 U” encapsulates Helado Negro’s choral-synthy sound. Check out the interview and featured tracks here.

Lange also stopped by WNYC’s Soundcheck to perform some more of his tracks and talk about the album. Discussing his unique bilingual format, Lange explains, “I start hearing words, and then one word happens to be in English, and the other word happens to be in Spanish. Then I figure out how to make a story…” The performance was topped off with tinsel-covered dancers for a quirky fun experience better watched than heard here.
