Angélica Garcia Shares “Color De Dolor

The pop experimentalist Angélica Garcia just announced the release of her new album Gemelo (Partisan Records), dropping on June 7, 2024, whose title translates to “Twin” in English. The album is a representation of the two selves, the spirit and body, and tackles how they work together and against one another. An inspired convergence of vanguard electronic pop explorations mirroring the depth of its spiritual excavations, Gemelo was produced by Carlos Arévalo (Chicano Batman), and recorded over a month and a half in Virginia. There, Angélica discovered and tapped into a fresh pop auteur 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.

The news of Gemelo arrives today with lead single “Color De Dolor ” which explores the acknowledgment of grief in kaleidoscopic pop clarity and is a testament to Angélica’s philosophy of life – plus it was the first song she wrote for the album. The song, with its title translating to “the color of pain,” is an anthem for processing how pain and beauty, rage and peace, sadness, and joy all form the colors with which we render and process existence as Garcia sings questioning it all. With the announcement also comes the “Color De Dolor” music video directed by Barcelona-born filmmaker Sergi Castellà, featuring Angélica and shot in Simi Valley, CA. 

“Grief is nuanced, and sometimes pain can be intertwined with beauty,“ says Angélica. “Gemelo is a body of work that explores the process of grieving – acknowledging the light and shadow within it. Color De Dolor was the first song that was written for Gemelo. It’s also the first song on the record where I face grief for what it is. I wanted Color De Dolor to feel very textured and lush like you’re walking through a jungle. To me, its kaleidoscopic quality shows sadness and beauty.” 

Gemelo is crucial for Angélica, marking not only her first album sung almost entirely in Spanish, but her first deeply probing the ancestral altar, having in recent years devoted herself to a process of monumental deconstruction — of religion, spirit, heritage, and womanhood, in turn confronting grief and finding liberation. “It was like getting dropped into ice water,” she says.
