With all the mainstream tracks on the airwaves, it’s sometimes hard to get into Latin alternative music that doesn’t always capture the same amount of attention. However, with social media, it’s notably easier to keep up with these new music releases that touch our hearts as much as the usual top 20 charts do.
From KORDELYA to Javiera Mena, here are five new Latin alternative tracks and artists to add to your playlists. You never know; one of them may be your next favorite go-to artist!
“Menos es más” – KORDELYA featuring José Madero
Kordelya is one of our favorite electro-pop and experimental artists. This time, she paired up with her cousin, the well-known alternative rock artist José Madero from the veteran band PXNDX. Together, they delivered an acoustic-driven song that embodies both artists’ signature sounds.
“De todas las flores” – Natalia Lafourcade
Lafourcade is back! After seven years, she’s back with original music. On “De Todas las Flores,” she features heart-wrenching lyrics that describe memories with an ex-partner. With this new single, she also unveiled that her forthcoming album will be released on October 28.
“SALVAJE” – Young Miko featuring Lyanno
Trap is also sometimes considered an alternative. So let’s put this Puerto Rican emerging artist named Young Miko on your radar. I mean, how can we not? She’s one of the upcoming, genre-bending artists making a name for herself. Pues, she just dropped a new single right before embarking on her first-ever U.S. tour – and we couldn’t be more excited!
“I Am Nobody” – Divino Niño
This Chicago-based band is one to listen to. The band just dropped their Last Spa on Earth album, where they delivered one of the most interesting, genre-blending albums. Pitchfork describes the album as “high doses of electro-house, hyperpop, and—most importantly—experimental reggaeton.” Needless to say, they’re one of the most exciting bands to add to our Latin alternative playlists!
“Me gustas tú” – Javiera Mena
One of our favorite Latine queer electro-pop artists is Javiera Mena. Her soothing vocals and easy-going, feel-good melodies make her one of our must-listen Latine music artists. Here’s her latest release!
