The concept is a story of a joyous relationship between Sega Bodega and a mythical girlfriend made entirely of light, Luci. Romeo channels the whirlwind of emotions in early love through masterful break-beat and experimental electronica production, interwoven with ethereal synths and harmonising choral vocals. Drumbeats, glitch and industrial sounds form a sonic structure to provide us with a wide expanse of emotions and affection in an album where every song slaps.
The 10-track journey is fun, intense and bangerful. The opener Effeminacy sets the tone of a tale where Salvador Navarrete’s voice is the tunnel we drive into; his narration doesn’t just stand out because of this new deeper emotional level in his songwriting, but by the way we musically discover his voice as an instrument-synth. It's a craft that reinforces his unique style and authenticity.
Angel On My Shoulder is a beautiful testament to his friendships, All Of Your Friends Think I’m Too Young For You and Only Seeing God When I Come unravel the enfant terrible of his cinematic ambiguously fiction or non-fiction tale. Luci is both an enigmatic and addictive closure.
I Need Nothing From You is the third single of the album, and on this take we found Sega Bodega’s hanging on from his most intimate side. The one-take music video made by Actual Objects focuses on his look to the camera, and shows vulnerability and resistance (see the exclusive behind the scenes shots*).
