‘Pista (Fresh Start)’ arrived on streaming platforms on January 11, along with a Tom Mitchell-directed music video that concludes a trilogy of visuals. The video kicks off with the quartet frolicking around a compound before they realise that they’re being stalked by a feline, human-sized creature.

Watch the music video for ‘Pista (Fresh Start)’ below.


Per a press statement, the band have revealed that the video drew inspiration from Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento and the Are You Afraid Of The Dark? franchise.

“The video transports you to our life in witness protection following our game show/courtroom victory – the good life and new beginnings. Things aren’t quite what they seem though… We had so much fun shooting this video and didn’t want to leave our cosy, wholesome nest,” said Los Bitchos.

‘Pista (Fresh Start)’ follows November’s ‘Good To Go!’, which came with a music video starring Franz Ferdinand’s Alex Kapranos as a gameshow host, and October’s ‘Las Panteras’.

‘Let The Festivities Begin!’ is scheduled for release on February 4, 2022 via City Slang, and can be pre-saved/pre-ordered here.

Just last week, Los Bitchos were featured in the 2022 NME 100, which highlights essential emerging artists from across the world. NME’s Rhian Daly praised the band for their “intoxicating power that makes you feel like you’re permanently three shots deep”.
