Sounds: Biglemoi // Sola

This new track from New Orleans-based band Biglemoi is such a gem—it’s not often that I come across a Spanish-language track from a band not based in Spain or Central America, and it’s absolutely lovely to be able to feature a tune that is so dynamic on the site. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate getting submissions from other Spanish–speaking countries, because of course, that’s what Left Bank is about, but it’s also really important to show how culturally diverse America is (and will continue to be). I won’t make this political, but Trump can kiss my you know where.

Back to the tune.

“Sola” is five minutes and 28 seconds of a mix of indie rock and indie-folk—it’s so dynamic it doesn’t even fit in one genre. It’s the track you hear when the couples reunite in a movie, or when someone moves away; it’s emotive and beautiful. It tugs at your heartstrings even before you even know what the words are.

Listen to the gorgeous track (and test your Spanish with the lyrics listed under the track).

Practice your Spanish with the lyrics below (you can Google translate if you need to 🙂

[In Spanish] 
Ya no mas sal 
Ya se curó 
Ella, solita 
Ya no más dio 
Ya no pudo llorar 
Y amenazó, con su furor 
De irse sola 
Pobre chico 
No la pudo alcanzar 
De tu 
Tu tu 
Tu mala fiebre 
De tu 
Tu tu 
De un mal amor 
De tu 
Tu tu 
Tu mala fiebre, ay no 
De tu 
Tu tu 
De un mal amor 
Sola… 

Ya no mas sal 
Ya se curó 
Ella, solita y ahí va 
Ya no mas dio 
Mas no pudo llorar 
Pues para que llorar 
Y amenazó, con su furor 
De irse sola 
Pobre chico 
No se pudo ayudar, de… 
De tu 
Tu tu 
Tu mala fiebre 

De tu 
Tu tu 
De un mal amor 
De tu 
Tu tu 
Tu mala fiebre 
Ahí no es, ves 
De un 
Tu tu 
De tu mal amor 
Sola, ella… 
Sola, sola, sola 
Sola, sola, sola…
