Acclaimed New Album Cha Cha Palace Out Now Via Spacebomb Records
Angelica Garcia today shared the video for “Lucifer Waiting,” a vibrant song off her acclaimed new album Cha Cha Palace, out now via Spacebomb Records. “‘Lucifer Waiting’ is about empowering yourself, even if you’re afraid, to recognize what is truly around you,” explains Garcia. Of the track’s accompanying video—directed by Richmond-based Arts & Letters Creative Co.—she adds, “From the beginning, everyone agreed that it would be such a cool challenge to tell this story using the collage on my album cover. We knew we wanted the artwork to interact with real-life performance to tell the song’s story of fighting off evil. I feel like the dance performance by myself and my friend Christine Catherine Wyatt is representative of ourselves fighting off our demons. Thinking back to when I first started making the collage, it was beyond me to imagine it vivified in this way. I’m glad to have a video that captures and combines several memories of the making of ‘Cha Cha Palace.’”
Cha Cha Palace was ranked among the Best Winter Albums by Bandcamp Daily and NPR Music. It has also earned features and high praise from The New York Times, The FADER, NPR’s Morning Edition, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, The Los Angeles Times, Interview Magazine, i-D/Vice, WBEZ Sound Opinions, Harper’s Bazaar (‘The Best Pop Songs of 2020 (So Far)’), Paste, and many more.
