From covers to collaborations, Catalina Navarro’s talent has been circulating the local scene of Santiago since 2016. Rightfully stepping into her own light, the artist debuts her single “A Ver (A Ver, A Ver)” taken off her forthcoming album which is set to be released later this year via Zilla Records.
The introduction to Navarro is timely from the track’s perception. Navarro’s smooth and dulcet vocals invite curiosity among the sweet, indie-pop cut. Directly translating to “let me see,” the artist’s sincere and respectful stance peaks at where a person comes from.
“A ver (A ver, A ver)” sharply sweeps Navarro’s signature croon against a tropical guitar, waiving questions upon meeting someone from a new culture: “Cuéntame ¿Quién eres tú? ¿Qué tienes ahí detrás?” The track is bright and carefree in its production and eagerly absorbs the energy of the unknown. And at the same time, the track looks back on one’s own experience for a sincere understanding.
As a debut, Navarro’s conscientious songwriting aides to the anticipation of future releases. It easily translates its vitality for those who do not understand Spanish, while carrying a stronger sense of culture for those who do.
