On May 27, Brooklyn’s Maria Usbeck will release her new Amparo album via Cascine (and Labrador in Europe). After half a decade of fronting Selebrities, Usbeck shifted gears for her debut solo album. We’re told Amparo is “a collection of songs written and recorded across the span of three years in Ecuador, Buenos Aires, Santiago, Barcelona, Lisbon, Easter Island, Costa Rica, Florida, L.A. and her home in Brooklyn.” As Amparo approaches, we’re excited to share Maria Usbeck’s “Uno de Tus Ojos”.
The new single highlights the best elements of what we’ve heard from Usbeck so far. She uses an assortment of electronic elements, a variety of percussion, xylophone, marimba, harp, piano and of course her vocals to create a welcoming, mesmerizing sonic environment.
