Biography

. Hialeah: “When You’re Standing” (Blackbox Records) Few bands these days can pique my interest; it’s a rare thing for me to be blown away by new music since so much is derivative that one has to judge a lot of this stuff by different, diluted standards other than originality. OK, Hialeah are not the only ones to sound like this. What they did, though, is to whip the senses into a frenzy of cool receptivity. Hialeah fits into this interesting box – the better file, I guess you could call it. I was pleased by the deconstructed power pop, the cerebral, emotive musings. The music really gets a kick from the thundering bass and the pulsing, throbbing beats of the drums; they both anchor the noodling, jangle of the guitar and the understated plaintive angst of the vocals. Hailing from the San Diego area, down in the mellow sunshine of So-Cal, Hialeah has a similar vibe to other area bands like The Nervous Return or Dehra Dun. A concise power-trio, Hialeah consists of Mario Quintero playing guitar and singing, Justin Jay on drums and Mike Pereira on bass and vocals. They are a tight outfit, the CD is well-produced and the rhythm section – bass & drums – is turned up quite high in order to really add a synthesisic addition to all the songs on “When You’re Standing”. With songs like “Fault Line”, “Turn it Down” or the closer, “Forevermore”, these guys are taking emo-core to a new subtlety, with blissful results.
