When Julian Casablancas happened to overhear the music of Mexican band Rey Pila playing in an office in New York City back in 2012, he immediately set out to sign the band. Now, some 2 years later, Casablancas’ Cult Records is poised to release Rey Pila’s latest album, The Future Sugar, on May 5. Check out lead single “Apex,” which boasts some serious synth rock muscle.
