Bardo Martinez & the Doves

"When Chicano Batman frontman Bardo Martinez isn’t playing guitar, keys and singing in his sharply-dressed soul band, he’s probably working on music in his home studio. Over the past two years, the multi-instrumentalist has been amassing a collection of vintage synthesizers and analog recording equipment the better to fully realize his musical ideas.”

Bardo's latest release, titled "Love of Mine”, premiered May 30, 2018 exclusively on Paste Magazine. Written for his wife, the single is Martinez’s first self-produced release on his own label Yemayá Sol Records. It’s a declaration of love that he says also makes a strong personal statement. “With writing this song, it’s like saying to the world: ‘This is who I am. This is who I love. This is what I sound like,’” he says.
In his words, “I'm just bringing it the way I feel it, from my dome to your home. I'm turning the knobs and rocking the switches and I have a lot of fun doing those things. I got an obsession with analog synthesizers and I make sure the kick and the bass are connected. Ive been writing songs for a long time, many of which you’ve heard through Chicano Batman. Now II finally possess the means to produce music the way I feel it. My studio is simple: a tape machine and a bunch of instruments. The reason I create music is to unwind my imagination and to let my ideas breathe freely and ceaselessly through the universe."
