María del Pilar has just premiered the music video to “Huaso de los Angelitos” off her debut solo album Songs + Canciones I. The video also features Chilean indie-pop star Gepe—who is known for his unique style of electropop infused with Chilean folk. The new video also includes a separate mini introduction video (see below) where María del Pilar talks about the inspiration behind the song and video.
You may remember María del Pilar as the front woman for Los Angeles alternative spanglish rock band Los Abandoned. Now that she’s a solo artist she has been described as a “Latin-influenced Bjork”. After going back to her roots in Chile’s cultural scene, the Chilena-Angelena songstress began writing the album Songs + Canciones I—which has become the first installment of a musical trilogy inspired by her soul-searching. María del Pilar is currently working on her next music video for the catchy dance single “En el Dancefloor” which will premiere next month.
Be on the lookout for that but in the meantime enjoy “Huaso de los Angelitos”.
