Chilean artist Kurmi embraces the magic and natural occurrence of the menstruation cycle on her latest indie-pop track, “Día 14” via Zilla Records. What comes on the heels of Kurmi’s awakening and celebratory single, “Cumplemes,” which marked one-year of social demonstrations in Chile, the artist’s optimistic perspective alludes to more universal revelations to be heard on the artist’s debut album due next year.
Often not talked about or utilized to shame, Kurmi highlights the wonders of ovulation, which in a normal 28-day menstrual cycle typically occurs 14 days before the start of the next menstrual period. Moving with the hormonal changes and the complexity of this stage, Kurmi honors the body spiritually. The shinning production of Nicolás Campos sways to the artist’s ethereal tone, composed to the release of new beginnings that are created within.
Laced with harmonic vocal layers and muted pop hooks, the blessing comes from Kurmi’s delivery; a sensory run of changes that are at the touch of each person’s cycle: “Mágica, cíclica, analitica, natural. Hormonal, compleja y simple (Magical, cyclical, analytical, natural. Hormonal, complex and simple).”
And while “Día 14” is one person’s view around the power of a woman’s body, there’s a shared orchestration of creation which Kurmi conveys musically.
