The often-praised Descartes a Kant from Mexico made a name for themselves with their extravagant, unpredictable, theatrical live shows. Their experimental mix of punk, metal, pop, kraut and cabaret is imaginative, wild, refined and full of wit.

Their new studio album “After Destruction” came out recently. This is a conceptual sci-fi record on which the themes of creation and destruction are explored. It showcases the mental discomfort in living in a compulsive, hyper-communicative yet emotionally isolated society, using retro-futuristic aesthetics, destructive guitars, synths and soulful melodies. Descartes a Kant makes fun of current-day capitalist society and everything related to it. They also introduce the “DAK”, an innovative machine that can repair all emotional damage. It’s sort of like a concert of this Mexican band: the fatigue and stressful nature of life itself is turned into energy and positivity in no-time.

Descartes a Kant manages to present all this through short, snappy, dance songs with a retro-futuristic sound. We’re not surprised the band has been support act to acts like Melvins, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Slayer and Explosions in the Sky.
