Last week, Bueno released Illuminate Your Room, their 2nd full-length, on Exploding In Sound and Babe City Records.
The record premiered on Hype Machine, but is now available to stream via their Bandcamp. On their latest, the Staten Island-bred outfit deliver a well-produced collection of 12 tracks that run the gamut of moods from groove-centric sermons like “Hizznherz” or “Mona (1991-2015)” to the more straight-up, pop sensibilities of “I Got Your Back”. Primary songwriter Luke Chiaruttini uses his conversational vocal to paint a vivid picture of a youthful narrator trying to rectify their optimism with a reality that is at times both more beautiful and more unfulfilling than they’d expected.
Illuminate Your Room is out now through Exploding In Sound and Babe City Records. Bueno’s record release show is 8/26 at Shea Stadium with Lost Boy ?, Foozle and Turnip King.
