The dynamic duo of Uruguay met on a circumstance of fate. Both moved to New York City for dreams – Ben a music producer, and Stepha a model – however, the realities of the city led to a string of struggles. In the midst of homelessness, the neighborhood bakery on Frederick Douglas and 117th provided a space of serenity.
“The woman behind the counter fed us and helped us get through. We finally asked where she was from…. She answered: ‘Uruguay.’
After making our first single, ‘Sabrina Segment’, we started talking about a band name. Something about feeling the slow rock of the train while the sun washed the city in a faded blue/gold haze made ‘Uruguay’ come to mind. We returned to the bakery to tell the woman how much she meant to us and our band, but sadly it was gone.
Uruguay is a symbol of our beginnings and the wonderful people who have and are helping us along the way.”
Today, Uruguay is on their way to becoming an undeniable force in the realm of anti-pop. Taking a grungier approach to the genre with their five singles to date, the group harnesses influences from Arlo Parks and dark narratives like Billie Eilish and Radiohead. These inflections have been translated into a vibrant kaleidoscope of sonic waves through which their organic production and haunting vocals leave a lasting impression.
