From there on, he will pursue a career as a musician. At first Luis started playing covers of "The Cure", "Heroes Del Silencio", "Caifanes", etc., with "Doppler" in 2003. It was not long after, in the same year, when he started his own band "Silueta Vil" a Latin Alternative Rock band from the New York tri-state area in 2003, in wich he was the lead singer. After five years of playing covers of Spanish and English bands, and also their own compositions, Luis still felt that there was more to do. Deep inside he had the need and hunger for new styles and rhythms.
This led him to walk away from the band after they split in early 2009 and to launch himself in a learning adventure of new trends in music , influenced by vanguard groups such as"Cut //Copy", "Franz Ferdinand", "Movin Units", "The Presets", "LCD soundsystem", "Fisherspooner", "The Bravery", "Daft Punk", etc In May of 2009 Luis Terreros decided to experiment with Electropop & new wave. With the close assistance of Producer Inti Maldonado and after six months of hard work and dedication he has finally finished his first solo EP called "Ecos Lucidos". The result has been a refreshing style of music that is a mix of Spanish and English tunes wich completely revolutionizes the realm of Spanish rock; reflecting very well the blend of Latin and American cultures so palpable in New York City. The summer of 2010 brought Luis Terreros back to the studio to record his new album Trivialidades, and after almost a year of production, with the collaboration between the stellar cast of artist Terreros, producer Inti Maldonado, engineer Lou Gimenez, drummer Mark Flynn, grammy award winning mixer Pablo Arraya and master enginner Tatsuya Sato from Sterling Sound has resulted in a charismatic set of seven new tracks (six in Spanish, one in English) boasting tight, clean rhythms and rich vocals. Trivialdades is even more charged with electronic sounds and loads of acoustic and electric guitars than Terreros' first album 'Ecos Lucidos’ and resembles contemporaries like Mexican pop rock band Zoe and canadian Arcade Fire while also carrying heavy nostalgic weight harking back to Spanish rockers like Gustavo Cerati and Babasonicos. Trivialdades is a well worked album dishing out a gumbo of sounds from indie and electric pop to alternative latin rock, all the while comfortably crossing over cultural and generational musical territory, something this team seems to be especially good at doing. The new album of Luis Terreros "Trivialidades" is the winner of the Album of the Year given by Voltaje Magazine NYC, That's a great recognition of the hard work for over a year of production and recording along with a great team who managed to bring out Trivialidades.
