Petite Amie is Carlos Medina’s (bassist in Little Jesus) Mexico City based alternate project. In 2020 Carlos (guitar) joined Aline Terrein (vocals), Isabel Dosal (vocals), Santiago Fernández (bass), and Jacobo Velazquez (guitar) to create their first LP, which will be available next April 2021. “Vraiment”, the debut single, was released last May 2020, followed by “Adiós”, July of the same year.
Even though they usually get together in Chimychanga Estudio to write and record, the friends have found sources of inspiration in different places in Mexico, taking their instruments along with them to create an improvised studio wherever they may be.
Their lyrics are characterized by the expression of the existential angst generated by the search for the “self” in an increasingly impersonal world, where the line between what’s real and what’s virtual crystallizes. In this sense, Petite Amie’s music fluctuates between different genres, based on psychedelic pop-rock. Their main influences include the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Big Thief, Magic Potion, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, and Crumb.
