Los Angeles’ experimental pop auteur ANGÉLICA GARCIA today releases a fresh Brooklyn-inspired video for the cumbia-steeped, avant-pop single “Juanita” out now on Partisan Records.

The track has its roots in 2020, as Angélica was sitting before an altar that she constructed in her bedroom, a culmination of her new inquiry into ancestral veneration: looking into the past to inform the present with familial knowledge. Watch the new “Juanita (Brooklyn Version)” video directed by filmmaker and musician Pepi Ginsberg and filmed in Brooklyn here:

And revisit the official video for “Juanita” directed by Sonia Malfa, an award-winning documentary filmmaker from Puerto Rico, here:

The dual releases of “Juanita” are just the latest signifiers that Angélica is primed for an exciting 2024. This week she also announced two headline tour dates for Paris and Brussels this June ahead of her new live show debut supporting Estevie this Sunday, March 10th in San Antonio and a play at The Great Escape Festival in May. Angélica will then take this new live show configuration to SXSW in Austin, Texas next week where she’ll perform for Stereogum, School Night, KCRW, KUTX, KEXP and more.

Produced by Chicano Batman’s Carlos Arévalo, “Juanita,” and Angélica’s Partisan Records debut, “Y Grito” and “El Que,” marked her first music sung entirely in Spanish, her native language, the one in which she learned to sing rancheras with her family as a child. It’s clear now Angélica has discovered and tapped into a fresh pop perspective, creating music that is searing and borderless, free of cultural confinement and challenging the notion that singing in English is a prerequisite for creating American music. Revisit the twin videos for her Partisan debut “Y Grito” and “El Que” (Dir. *UNCANNY (BROCKHAMPTON, Danger Mouse, Black Thought)).

Now living in Los Angeles, Angélica was raised by her Mexican and El Salvadoran family in El Monte, California; east of LA where she lived for most of her life.

With a number of UK shows confirmed for 2024, stay tuned for much more to come from Angélica Garcia later this year.
