Alex Anwandter is colloquially known as the “Prince of Chilean Pop,” and Daniel Riveros has been called “The New Guru of Chilean Folk,” and so it’s little surprise that a pairing of the two would produce something fresh and vibrant. And so it is with “Baby,” a light, fizzy electropop number that nods toward the mellower moments of groups like Phoenix and Passion Pit, but capitalizing more on languid, lovely vocal melodies. Both Anwandter and Riveros have established reputations for pushing Chilean pop forward, tinkering with and incorporating newer sounds into their sleek, graceful music. The song drifts by like soft white clouds on a cool afternoon, blinking synths the perfect counterpoint to Anwandter and Riveros’s gentle harmonies.
