The wait is over. After 13 years of silence, the alt-rock band CIRCO, is back with its long awaited release of their new album “Adios Hola.” To mark their triumphant return to the music scene, the multiple Latin GRAMMY nominees have released one single per week starting with “La Tormenta,” followed by “Tantos Anos,” “Las Joyas,” and concluded with yesterday’s release “Si Tu Te Vas.”

Late last year Fofe, Egui, David and Orlando went into the recording studio to begin work on the new album. An album that was recorded amidst earthquakes in Puerto Rico and a global Pandemic. Situations that served as inspiration and can be heard reflected in the music.

Fofe, the group’s front man describes the as: “A mystic journey inspired by drastic changes, unexpected separations, inevitable moves and the nostalgia inspired by missing our loved ones who are no longer there. It is an astral journey to meet with long distance loves, and the story of migrating to start from nothing.”

“‘Hola Adios’” talks about the hope of new beginnings and presents the act of breaking with the routine of relationship which was once thought of unbreakable as something positive and worth celebrating. It celebrates the lucky streaks, new experiences and shared intimacies.”

With their characteristic sound, the band talks about everyday topics in their lyrics infused with the magic realism that is abundant in their music. They contrast nostalgia and melancholy with a touch of sarcasm and irony, and blend it seamlessly with rhythms that take the listener on a journey to a parallel universe. Each song is a celebration of feelings and the importance of being alive; grieving everything in each song.

Each member of the band played an integral part in bringing this album to life. It is a collaborative process between music and lyrics. This album is a mixture of influences of retro pop, electro, alternative, new wave, post punk and psychedelia to create the CIRCO signature sound.

“Adios Hola” is available now.
