ANGELICA GARCIA PREMIERES “JÍCAMA (CON SAL VERSION)”

DOUBLE SINGLE OUT NOW VIA SPACEBOMB RECORDS 

Angelica Garcia has released “Jícama (Con Sal Version),” a fresh take on her recent single for Spacebomb Records which premiered recently via The FADER. “I loved the process of reimagining the song with a different beat,” says Garcia of the updateGarcia will make her London debut on January 30th at Paper Dress Vintage before returning to SXSW Music Festival 2020 in March, and also appearing at The Great Escape and Live At Leeds early next summer; see below for a full itinerary.

The new double single “Jícama” and “Jícama (Con Sal Version)” is out now via Spacebomb Records and follows “Karma The Knife” and “It Don’t Hinder Me”.

The Richmond, Virginia-based artist, who sings about and pulls inspiration from her experience growing up in the predominantly Latinx communities of Southern California, says “Jícama” is “about not being seen for having a dual identity. When you don’t feel seen, you don’t feel accepted for who you are.” The song was released alongside a charity initiative of ‘WEAR YOUR ROOTS’ t-shirts and posters available for sale via her website, with all proceeds going to regionally based organizations supporting migrant families in the U.S. (¡MIRA!Annunciation House, and Immigrant Families Together).

“Jícama” is an empowering call for all to proudly ‘WEAR YOUR ROOTS’ despite the current political landscape, which finds immigrants, minorities, and POC from all over the world as targets of hate and xenophobia. “I come from a line of immigrants so I wanted the proceeds of these shirts to go directly towards supporting migrant families,” Garcia said of the charity initiative. “This effort is for the children of the 600 taken by ICE in Mississippi, migrants seeking refuge in El Paso & families that have been separated at the border. Thank you for supporting.
