GRAMMY-winning, LA-based quartet La Santa Cecilia will release their new album, ‘La Santa Cecilia,’ on October 11th, via Rebeleon Entertainment / Universal. Produced bySebastian Krys, the five-time GRAMMY and 12-time Latin GRAMMY winner who most recently produced Elvis Costello’s ‘Look Now’ and has worked with Luis Fonsi, Shakira and many others, the sonically wide-ranging collection is a thematic fusion of pain and persistence written after a year in which three of the four band member’s fathers passed.
The first single “Winning” is a take on social media oversaturation and was mixed by legendary Grammy winner Dave Pensadoset. Musically set to spoken word and acoustic guitar licks that turn, within seconds, into an 80s-inspired surf-rock riot ignited by powerhouse frontwoman “La Marisoul” (whose vivacious performance NPR named a highlight of last year’s star-studded ‘Joni Mitchell at 75’ tribute), the band said of the track, “Our reality is online, and rarely do we actually experience firsthand what the true meaning behind things actually are. Mass shootings, police brutality, and justice, in general, are just examples of how in arms we become online and 3 days later it’s like we all forget all about it.”
