At the end of October, transcontinental pals Carolina Faruolo (ex-Los Bitchos) and Danny Lee Blackwell (Night Beats) will release their debut album Monte Carlo, which they created remotely — with Faruolo in the UK and Blackwell in Texas — during the height of the pandemic. As Abraxas, they’ve released two tracks from the album, “Mañana” and “Sunrise State (Of Mind).” Now, the duo’s sharing a third album single: the samba-dancing “Göbekli Tepe.”

According to the band, their latest single is meant to evoke images of a “dense, electricity-filled fog hover[ing] over the grounds of ‘Göbekli Tepe’… A dark samba emerges, drifting through the vines covered monolithic halls; while in rhythm with the sleeping jaguars and chirping cicadas. The beckoning choruses lull our traveler into a bossa nova induced trance, while the hand rhythms keep the pulse of the jungle.”

Listen below.
