La Santa Cecilia Scroll Down The Feed With "Winning" For Press Play
"If I don't share, then it didn't happen," sings La Santa Cecilia lead singer La Marisoul in the hilarious and poignant performace of "Winning," performed exclusively for Press Play.
"Winning" is a fun number with a powerful message about social media oversaturation and the dangers of faux online activism. La Marisoul frantically reads and sings as she scrolls, quoting comments, quiping clichés into satire and creating a musical manifestation of the frenzy in our phones with pin-point sardonic accuracy. And you can dance to it!
Drawing from a wide range of influences including bolero, Mariachi, R&B and rock, La Santa Cecilia draw their name from the Catholic patroness of musicians. The band started out in 2007 performing in coffee shops and backyards around Los Angeles. "Winning" is their latest single, dropping just last month on July 19.
And speaking of winning, in 2013 the group won the GRAMMY for Best Latin Rock, Urban Or Alternative Album for Treinta Días, their first win, at the 56th GRAMMY Awards. La Santa Cecilia have been nominated twice since, again in the same category three years later for Buenaventura, and the following year for Best Latin Pop Album for Amar Y Vivir En Vivo Desde La Ciudad De México, 2017.
So sit back and enjoy this exclusive perfomance of "Winning" in this edition of Press Play, don't forget to like and share, and be sure to catch La Santa Cecilia on tour in a city near you
