Solburst | “Natural High” | Debut album due August 2011

Mexico City’s Solburst release the first single “Natural High” from their debut album , due out in August 2011. Check them out on Facebook:

The duo project headed up by Alexandra Blakely and Hugo Vera Solari met on a road trip to Puerto Escondido, Oaxaca 2009. Little did they know that one year later they would be working side by side recording a mix of neo-soul and a sweeter side of hip hop.
Chile native Vera Solari moved to Mexico in 2008 after ten years of recording and producing rock, funk and jazz, as well as directing and working in television and Late night shows in his hometown Santiago. He soon hooked up with some of Mexico’s hottest musicians and wasn’t long before artists started contacting him to produce their Ep’s, one of them being Alexandra Blakely.
Hailing from Seattle, Washington, Blakely moved to Tulum, Mexico in 2005 with a backpack and guitar. Never playing a chord in her life, she decided it was time to take a break from her native society and see if there was something else out there. It was a hurricane that pushed her inland and down south to San Cristobal de las Casas where she was asked to jam with some local musicians. And that is where her story began, singing folk and blues in the valleys of Chiapas. Four years later she landed in Mexico City and quickly began to play in many different projects. With all her original music she came knocking on Solari’s door saying, “You got some time to do some real shit?!”

A year later, they are almost done with their first album, “Natural High” which is out this month. Check out the first single plus a peep at the follow up “Say” and keep your eyes peeled for more details.
