Perhaps my greatest joy in 2019 is just letting go of trying to follow trends or be in the loop, and instead focus on finding the joys in what I already know I love…like Spanish pop tunes. Senalada has this amazing new single that I think you’ll like, and if not, eh, sorry. There’s that slight dreamy tone to the guitar, matched by this wispy vocal before percussion kicks in and the guitar dances down the yellow brick road. The breathiness of the voice really hits home; it’s like every last breath is being given forth for the sake of the listener. This is a great one-off single for those that missed out on Mejores Amigos via Discos de Kirlian.
As a fan of the indiepop genre, I try my best to always browse the web searching for things to share…which led me to Discos de Kirlian, long ago. Today the label just quietly dropped two new releases in our lap, and why not visit some of the best in Spanish indiepop. The first bit comes from Senalada, finding that perfect middle ground between twee and electronica; I love the acoustic guitar at work here. On the other side we have this charming ditty from Cosmo K.; it’s brevity helps you sink your teeth in immediately, then return to lap up all the joy all over again. Both releases can be found HERE.
