Argentinian soul singer-songwriter Florencia Andrada (recently signed to My Grito Industries) has released a new single/video “Dueños del Terror.”
The song critiques the richest citizens who complained about Covid restrictions in Buenos Aires during lockdowns. Florencia Andrada told Hollywood Life:
I wrote this song during the 2020 strict quarantine. It’s called ‘Dueños del Terror’ or ‘Owners of Terror.” Here in Buenos Aires some of the richest people started to complain about the restrictions. The song talks about how even in the darkest times some people are unable to put themselves in someone else’s shoes, to have some empathy. Teachers, doctors, the homeless, the people that live in the poorest neighborhoods where the most affected as always but the ones complaining were the rich ones, that always blame the poorest for all the problems in the world while they continue stacking their millions.
For the past 10 years, Andrada’s musical search has seen inspiration from the 70s and 60s Soul and R&B with a contemporary touch. Recently signed with Los Angeles-based, My Grito Industries, Andrada made her label debut with the single “El Imperio” earlier this year. We can expect a new full-length LP out in 2022 from My Grito Industries.
