[VIDEO] “[15] Amphetamine”:

“...amped-up, high-focus, twitchy, and sweaty. This is late-night music -- churning synths, funky basslines, and DFA Records-style cowbell create a roiling, speed-paranoia vibe that still stays danceable. …sounds piped directly in from downtown New York or east London -- first-class!” – Miami New Times

It’ll take just one listen to the debut recording from Miami duo Old Wives’ Tale to understand why brothers Jaime and Felipe Valencia have coined it “amphetamine music.” Songs from the band’s Younger Limbs release such as “Royal Fresh,” and the stand out single “[15]Amphetamine” all live up to the assertions made above by the Miami New Times. The impressive "[15] Amphetamine" Video was recently selected by celebrated French auteur Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind) as the “Audience Choice Award” winner in the Video Music Awards. Now the duo will venture to Paris where it will perform two nights at the [TIME*] festival to take place at venues throughout the city.

The Valencia brothers formed Old Wives’ Tale in 2006 shortly after making the decision to relegate their biology, chemistry, music and audio engineering diplomas to mere wall decorations. Infected by an angst that resonated in every indie club in Miami’s design district, Jaime and Felipe joined their contrasting music personalities to create a fresh sound composed of distorted bass lines, disco beats, ripping guitars, and lyrics referencing alter-egos, heart-breaking love affairs, and one-night stands.
