Watch for Horses is an American indie rock band from Norwalk, California, formed in 2011. The band consists of Joshua Borja, Julian Chavez, Bryant Genuino and Ralph Tafoya. United, the musical ensemble seeks to use their sound as a way of expressing what words cannot. “Music lends itself to every emotion. Every feeling. Every instinct. Music can bring you back to a time or place. It has such a profound effect on the human mind” confides Tafoya.
Watch for Horses fuses radiant melodies, surprising progressions and warm laid-back harmonies. Taking inspiration from the likes of The Smiths and Young The Giant, the band have concocted a playful indie rock sound, flavored with So-Cal pop. Entitled “San Junipero” the single found inspiration from the popular Black Mirror series. Highlighting the band’s signature style of infectious twangy guitars, dynamic rhythm sections and laid-back West Coast vocals.
After the success of their previous EP The Evil Kid, which was added to rotation on LA’s World Famous KROQ and won them a place at the Vans Warped Tour, Watch for Horses are back with their highly anticipated upcoming release “San Junipero” and it’s set to be another success. Sonically, “San Junipero” is full of energy, with a sweeping catchy chorus and vocals that sparkle amidst the driving rhythmic section. The single emanates the band’s ideology to create something ultimately fun, layered with a variety of textures while still maintaining organic and unpretentious style.
“San Junipero” is based around the love story within Black Mirror that happens between two people who are inherently different, the music is inspired by the dynamic of this unforeseen relationship. “The most intriguing part is that this all takes place in this alternative to heaven, called San Junipero” reveals Tafoya.
