JAVIERA MENA RELEASES NEW EP '1. ENTUSIASMO'
Chilean indie icon Javiera Mena has released her new EP '1. Entusiasmo' at digital music services. The EP launches with "Flashback," which was released during a period of confusion at the beginning of the pandemic, combining nostalgia with futuristic elements. It also includes the ballad "Dos" which displays Javiera's other side in contrast to her signature electropop sound.
“The name of my new EP is inspired by themes of enthusiasm, passion, desire, and Eros," Javiera explains. "All of the songs follow the drive to chase after something, whether another person or an action. This impulse is linked to the Eros, not just the sexual Eros associated with carnal desire, but also the Eros that motivates people to do things."
The EP includes memories of quarantine and heartbreak stories. The song "Diva" is a collaboration with the Andalusian artist Chico Blanco and encourages people to enjoy themselves without feeling guilty. The track "Pasión A.K.A. Illusion" features soft tones, pianos, guitars, and bass that provide the song's melody.
Javiera's new EP follows her Latin GRAMMY-nominated album 'Espejo.' The album included the hit "Intuicion" featuring Bomba Estereo's Li Saumet. Javiera toured the world in support of the album, including an appearance at the Coachella Music Festival in California.
