Mexico City based singer, artist and songwriter Girl Ultra just dropped a haunting new single called “Rosas,” the first insight from her upcoming second EP. It’s a record that deals with the themes of unrequited love and rejection. For a moment, you feel, and think nothing. <3
“Rosas” fuses classic bolero styles with Latin R&B and mixes eclectic instrumentals with a classical guitar, deconstructed percussion influences and Jersey club music. “Rosas” talks about putting roses on someone’s table, taking action. To tear apart your heart and even then not be noticed. It leaves this question as a final result: “How do I tell you?” “‘Rosas’ was a pretty experimental recording for me since I was incorporating some of my deepest recent influences such as trip hop, house and Mexican boleros with some jungle music as well,” explains Mariana de Miguel aka Girl Ultra. “It ended up becoming a very raw and eclectic track that matches the lyrics. I really wanted to translate this rawness and vulnerability to film.”
And Mariana continues on her upcoming album: “My main idea was to use R&B, which is a lesser known genre in my country, to develop a new language where I could translate the music I grew up with, which was mostly from the late 70s, 80s and early 90s,” Mariana explains on her upcoming album.
