Cheeto and Jorge Davila are a duo from Houston, Texas who reside in New York City. They write songs through live performance, then record them in the studio, fleshing out the drum and bass guitar core of the compositions with washes of synth and textured vocals. Fans of Lightning Seeds, lend an ear.
“Symbol Eyes” is from their latest (fourth) EP, Particle. The sound is punchy pop that’s breezy and pleasant, but at its core, the song has a depth that nicely belies its pun of a title. “Mindless Radio” uses pulsing stabs of synth that recall a more sunny Depeche Mode or Erasure with a mean grudge.
