“eclipse de amor” by NOIA ft: Raquel
Brooklyn/Barcelona experimental Spanish pop artist NOIA (alias for composer and engineer Gisela Fullà-Silvestre) announces her debut LP, gisela. Along with the announce she shares lead-single “eclipse de amor”, featuring a duet with Raquel Berrios of Puerto-Rican duo Buscabulla. The track is accompanied by a visual directed by Erin Vassilopoulos. Gisela and Raquel star in the style of a romantic bolero; full of darkness, danceable beats and dystopian tropical sounds.
About the track, NOIA offers: “eclipse de amor is like a movie set in a tropical night that ends with a knife and blood. A love story and a mysterious murder. It’s a song about duality, two people mirroring each other, an eclipse of love that ends up consuming you in the name of becoming something beautiful together. I guess it’s an ode to toxic consuming love? This song is also an ode to old boleros. it has that energy of old romantic duets, but then the chorus feels like entering a future dystopian tropical video game party, so it holds those two very different worlds. I was very excited to sing this duet with Raquel from Buscabulla. She has a unique vocal tone, it evoques darkness and echoes from another era somehow. We complemented each other so well with the two characters of this song. Luifre (the other half of Buscabulla) recorded this retro synth line over her verse that gave it even more of a classic vibe. I started working on this song as part of the music for a film that needed a romantic bolero kind of track, and then the song evolved when i was making some beats for a reggaeton artist that he ended up not using. So in a way it always has felt like a very playful song.”
