Papagayo, the Valencian Bearoid's new album, is an LP of 12 songs, some of them co-produced with Turian Boy (No Me Da, Llámame, Tocarte, Olvidarlo, No te necesito, Romper) and InnerCut (Giro). The album also features vocal collaborations by Adriana Proenza, One Path, Sr. Chen, Karma Cereza (Mueveloreina) and Turian Boy.
In an absolutely multicolour style, throughout Papagayo, we can listen from 80s pop, lofi rnb or slow disco to emo beats, dancehall or reggaeton pop.
The concept of the LP revolves around a dream that Bearoid himself had one day with a beautiful and at the same time very sad image: in a room the evening light entered and a parrot took flight over a bed, filling the air with sheets and dropping colored feathers that were thrown everywhere. The parrot was on the run, losing feathers and memories, dying and being reborn.
Papagayo, is an album created and conceived in one of the hardest stages of Bearoid's life, in moments of depression and anti-aging. Self-esteem crisis that ends up ending relationships with the person you were going to share the rest of your life. And that, when they pass, you realize that they are the times in which you have learned the most to love yourself, to get rid of the idea of romantic love, to observe yourself, both in the mirror, and inside, in the mind.
Papagayo's songs go from the whitest glow to the most absolute darkness. Composed in a very short time, but matured slowly, they speak of anxiety, loss, suicide and death. But, also, about sex, faith, love, superficiality and Tinder. In short, it is what living in the ultralife has.
Bearoid is a project that arose from experimentation, from the search for independence. It is a bedroom and train travel project. Where reality is based either on dim lights, four walls and a bed or on landscapes at 200km / h with close strangers. It is a reflection, an avatar to explore harmonies. It is not a randomly chosen name, but a totemic animal and warrior name used as protection from the real world. It is a figure halfway between a bear and a human, equally savage and conscious. Bearoid has always created music to heal, but he had never concluded that talking about how bad you are can be, and often is, the cure for others. Therefore, this time he gives us a new album full of truth.
