Today, Friday, September 16th sees the release of Marinero’s “Ixchel & Lonely Girl,” a song about the power of maternal love, and released in celebration of the National Latinx Heritage Month, which also begins today. The song is available worldwide on all DSPs from Hardly Art.
“Ixchel & Lonely Girl” is the follow up to Marinero’s Hella Love, his praised Hardly Art-debut (and love letter/grand farewell to his hometown, before relocating to Los Angeles where he is currently based). “Ixchel & Lonely Girl” is an ode to a friend and her daughter who’d gone through a difficult time. The song speaks to the unstoppable drive of maternal love, and the lengths mothers will go to for their children. Marinero shares, “I just know that there’s nothing stronger in the universe than my mother’s love.” Watch here.
Marinero will embark on a short, Southwestern US tour with Divino Nino and Little Jesus beginning this Saturday, September 17th in Yuma, AZ at Red Moon Ale House and ending Sunday, September 25th in Houston, TX at White Oak Music Hall. Marinero will also appear at the Noise Pop Block Party in San Francisco on Saturday, October 15th.
