Holding on to the same intent and desire from Frank Dominguez’s “Tú Me Acostumbraste,” Gemma Castro takes a beloved classic and redefines it into a dreamy mirage of spiritual discovery with her well awaited video, directed by Tina Sapszian. Taken from her self-titled EP, released two years ago, Castro’s peaks and selective return not only anticipates new music from the Los Angeles artist, but reminds us all of Castro’s grace and soulful demeanor.
Castro’s original offering picks apart fragility that is echoed in her vocals and does ring true to the styling of a bolero. As the track contains a certain stamp of time, the video lounges without a real concept to the measurement of grains. The focus on Castro’s performance is enhanced through the hazy lens and double exposure of her surroundings, capturing Castro’s intimacy. The track’s harp, led by Gracie Sprout, finalizes the romantic presentation as Castro’s vocals intertwine and lead towards vulnerability within love, yet a profound strength in her portrayal.
