    Las Nubes

    Since 2017, Miami, FL-based Las Nubes has played their undeniably catchy, multilingual alternative/dream pop/shoegaze all over the damn place- bars, basements, festivals, storefronts...  The current quartet of Ale Campos (guitar/vocals), Emile Milgrim (drums), Alumine Soto (guitar), and Cuci Amador (bass/vocals) forge a relentless energy founded on their collective DIY roots throughout South Florida and Latin America.  Throughout multiple lineups, releases, tours, and even a name change, they’ve only just begun scratching the surface.
