On March 26, 2021, Latin Grammy-nominated rock band Making Movies will release their take on the Talking Heads song “Listening Wind.” After playing the Talking Heads seminal album Remain In Light for their 2019 New Years Eve party, “Listening Wind” was the track that stuck with them the most.
Enrique Chi, lead singer and guitarist, shares, “We couldn’t shake it’s haunting melody; I kept returning to its tragic narrative. Mojique’s frustrated plight, angered at a world changing before his eyes and feeling powerless to its whims, takes matters into his own hands. Don’t we all feel that?” The song features harpist Calvin Arsenia and violinist Jeremy Kittel, adding to the haunting melody found in the original.
Making Movies is an American band with a sound Rolling Stone describes as “an eclectic blend of rumbero percussions, delicate organs and grungy fuzz rock.” Formed by Panamanian brothers Enrique and Diego Chi, on electric guitar and bass, Mexican-American percussionist and keyboardist Juan-Carlos Chaurand, and drummer Duncan Burnett, the band rose to acclaim through a decade of relentless touring in the US and Latin America.
