NEW MUSIC: JACKIE MENDOZA - “Seahorse”
25 Feb 2019
Jackie Mendoza shares a new single "Seahorse" via Luminelle Recordings.
Jackie Mendoza announces her debut 'LuvHz' (Love Hurts) EP, out April 26 on Luminelle Recordings, and available for pre-order now. In conjunction with today’s announcement, she also shares the lead single, “Seahorse,” a “song that encapsulates the EP sonically and thematically.” “Seahorse” follows the standalone single, “De Lejos,” released last month.
“Seahorse” directly refers to how seahorses mate for life and live in a symbiotic state by taking on equal responsibilities. “Females ‘plant’ the egg inside the male’s pouch and the male gives birth to thousands of seahorse babies while the female looks for food and shelter,” says Mendoza. The sound of the song was also inspired by the way they swim and move; sporadic and free-flowing. “The song’s instrumentation mirrors the sense of being underwater; I imagined myself swimming between colorful coral reefs and seagrass. The sonic textures and theme behind this song are echoed throughout the EP.” Its video shows Mendoza walking on a shoreline, surrounded by floating blips of color and saturated hues.
