Artist Info: Splitting their time between Ecuador and the Wynwood Art District in Miami, Prime Ministers are set to make their mark with the release of their third album, ASYMMETRIC. Their last album was produced by Max Hayes (Oasis, Paul Weller, Primal Scream, Jamiroquai). Their first album got them two #1 spots on Latin American radio, their single "Far From Free" went to Number 1 on MTV Latino, and were voted one of the top 50 best Latin American bands in 2009.
PureVolume.com says their first single “New Beginnings”, “has a bouncy, rocking vibe that will make your head bob back and forth."
"It started as an idea about about how music began, and the first instruments that we had... our feet and hands creating rhythm," singer Ernesto Estrada says. "A little journey through this; the vocals, and then strings and percussion appeared in the history of music. I wanted to try in three-and-a-half minutes to go beginning to end exploring the creation of instruments and to end with electronics."
Impose.com says about their second single: “If you are looking for a new favorite song to add to your playlist, look no further than “Satisfied” by Prime Ministers. The Miami based band from Equador (Ernesto Estrada, Alejandro Martin Carrau; Alejandro Zon, Fabio Lopez) have created a to-the-point rock and roll song. With hard driving beats and lyrics that you can sing at the top of your lungs, “Satisfied” is a brilliant introduction to a broader audience, although performances at SXSW, Great Escape and Columbia’s Rock Al Parque were pretty good introductions as well.
Their singer and main songwriter Ernesto Estrada explains, “'Satisfied' is our song about relationships and our expectations of others. This song turned into being our show opener because it grabs people right away and has a great tempo. At the end of the day with relationships you are either satisfied or you’re not.”
