NATALIA LA FOURCADE & HELLO SEAHORSE
About Natalia Lafourcade:

Since she was very young, Natalia had a great interest in music, partly because her parents were musicians (her father is the Chilean-born musician Gastn Lafourcade). At three years old she began to sing and at four, she realized that she wanted to be an artist.

She attended Instituto Anglo Espaol, a Catholic middle school. In her childhood and adolescence she studied painting, flute, theater, music, acting, piano, guitar, saxophone and singing. When she was 10, Natalia sang in a Mariachi group.

She lived many years in Coatepec, Veracruz, Mexico, where she studied music with her mother, imitating artists like Gloria Trevi and Garibaldi.

In 1998, Natalia was part of a girl trio called Twist. The group was unsuccessful and they split up the following year.

Soon after, she began preparing to be a solo artist. When she was 17, Loris Ceroni gave Natalia the opportunity to be in a pop/rock group under his guidance, but when she wasn't sure, he encouraged her to go solo.

Although Lafourcade didn't join the group, Loris Ceroni produced her first LP under the label of Sony Music. It was recorded in Italy and was cowritten with Aureo Baqueiro. Sabo Romo played in 2 songs. Natalia Lafourcade is a mix of pop, rock, bossa-nova and Latin rhythms. It features the songs "Busca Un Problema", "Elefantes", "Te Quiero Dar", "Mirame, Mirate", and her biggest hit, "En El 2000".

In 2003, she was nominated for a Latin Grammy in the Best New Artist category (she lost to David Bisbal) for her debut album. Also, she collaborated on the soundtrack of the Mexican movie Amar te duele and "Un Pato" for the movie Temporada de patos.


About Hello Seahorse:

Hello Seahorse!, the Mexican trio of Burgos, Denise (aka Vanilla Face), and Bonno T, mix a twee sensibility and artsy DIY visual aesthetic with unexpected instrumental interludes (lapping ocean waves, jumbled voices over piano) and spacier, darker, non-twee moments. They have a knack for writing pop songs that hit you immediately. You could think of them as a scaled down Los Campesinos! (note shared exclamation point), an even more scaled down I'm From Barcelona, or, maybe, a Sarah Records band singing in Spanish. (On a track like "Antardecer En Parapent" you'll even hear Stereolab in the vocal patterns.) HS!'s catchiest song, bar none, is "Won't Say Anything," which we have in video and audio form. You should also take a listen to the glitchier Velocity Girl-esque "Universo 2," which closes out Hoy A Las Ocho, and gives an idea of the band's aforementioned diversity.
