The story of Las Robertas new album Love Is The Answer, out February 3, 2023 on Kanine, starts when they met producer Owen Morris, famous for working with Oasis, The Verve, Ash, and New
Order, at a small art gallery party located in downtown San Jose, Costa Rica. After the band’s live set, Mercedes (lead singer) recalls meeting Owen who told her that Las Robertas reminded him of the Velvet Underground. It was a coincidence that Mercedes dressed up like Nico for that show, and after numerous hangouts in local bars involving many drinks and laughs together, an idea evolved of working on an album together.
The result is Love is the Answer, an album where the Welsh producer successfully highlights Las Robertas love of 90’s alt rock greats like The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Dandy Warhols, The
Charlatans, Lush, Ride and The Breeders while still sounding uniquely like Las Robertas.
