As Agua Viva, Josi Arias conjures balmy nights through misty art pop. Next month, the Argentinian artist will self release her sophomore album El Hechizo de la Luna, a project channelling the spirit of eighties Latin pop. The full record is due out June 21, and today, she's sharing its lead single “Las estrellas se quiebran," a hazy nocturne that contemplates the transience of a beautiful moment. It arrives with a Irina JP-directed video, which sways with a Lynchian sense of unease.
"It's about the ends and beginnings," Arias told The FADER. "How something as powerful as a star can also be fragile and disappear instantly, not existing anymore. How painful the end would be, and at the same time how beautiful, because it's a new beginning." Watch the "Las estrellas se quiebran" video, and peep Agua Viva's upcoming New York gigs, below.
Upcoming tour dates:
May 17th - Ridgewood, NY @ The Windjammer
