"rest up" by Boy Pablo

Boy Pablo has shared his new single “rest up” and B-Side “people”. The singer/songwriter/producer’s debut album Wachito Rico drops on October 23, via 777 Music.  In other news, Boy Pablo has announces a Spring 2021 tour, including stop sin Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, the UK, Portugal, Spain and more.

Boy Pablo’s Nicolas Muńoz has found himself more connected to his art than ever. While Boy Pablo initially started out as a project just for fun, Muńoz, now 21, has since honed a cohesive, creative vision, becoming a fully-fledged force to be reckoned with in the indie-pop space.

Wachito Rico is the title character of the album and pablo’s alter ego that has curly hair. The series continues with his new single “rest up” and b-side “People”, songs about mental health/anxiety and loneliness/depression respectively. Although the tracks deal with some darker and more serious subject matter they still carry pablo’s signature care-free, upbeat and super catchy touch.

Boy Pablo on “rest up”:

“This song is one of the most personal songs I’ve written. It’s got a double meaning: on the one side its about my experiences dealing with anxiety and mental health issues but at the same time it takes on relationship problems. In both cases though the song is about how you can get overwhelmed with negative problems that make it difficult to think clearly and focus on the most important things in life. The instrumental was written a few years ago but it all came together as a song when I was in the studio with Esteban and Erik recording Wachito Rico.”
