Rising producer and songwriter Surf Mesa has teamed up with Nitti Gritti, a Latin Grammy award-winning producer for “Marching Band” Featuring sensual Latin-tinged horns, relentless beats, and chopped vocals, the joyous track offers the perfect springtime soundtrack.

Surf Mesa, also known as Powell Aguirre, is a 21-year-old Seattle native who has become a fast-rising star in the electronic scene. He first caught the attention of fans on TikTok in 2019 with the viral hit “ily (i love you baby)” ft. Emilee, who sings a dreamy rendition of Frankie Valli’s “Can’t Take My Eyes Off You.”  The artist, who makes self-proclaimed “music for good feels,” continued the vibes with tracks like “Carried Away” with Madison Beer and “Another Life” featuring FLETCHER and Josh Golden.

“‘Marching Band’ is one hell of a fun track,” said Surf Mesa in a statement. “I’m so excited to share this one with the world as I’ve been teasing it for months in my sets. As live music has returned, I’ve had the chance to explore a sound that gives a new wave of energy. Nitti and I could not be more excited about this one.”

Nitti Gritti, who has worked with such A-list artists as Bad Bunny, Cardi B, Diplo, Major Lazer, Enrique Iglesias, and Pitbull, added, “When Surf first sent me ‘Marching Band,’ I was so inspired I worked on the song and sent it right back to him. I’m really excited to hear everyone’s reaction to this one!”
