Chicano Batman source their high-spirited alternative Latin synthesis from Tropicália, West Coast psychedelia, and late-'60s/early-'70s soul, among other styles. Eduardo Arenas (bass, vocals), Bardo Martinez (lead vocals, organ, guitar), and Gabriel Villa (drums, percussion) made their recorded debut in 2009 with a self-released, self-titled album. After Carlos Arévalo (guitar) was added to the lineup, Chicano Batman issued the Joven Navegante EP in 2012. The Los Angeles-based band released only handful of additional singles over the next few years, but they expanded their fan base in 2015 with dates opening for Alabama Shakes and Jack White, as well as a performance at Coachella. In 2016, Chicano Batman signed to the ATO label, where they released Freedom Is Free in early 2017. ~ Andy Kellman
