Leaving for a moment his beloved project with Tiny Division, Javier Blake decided that it was time to set out on a solo path to give off some personal feelings and ideas. Today, he gives us “Réplica” the first single from his next album and debut as a soloist In Times of Strange.

In this effort, Javier Blake projects all the years of learning and maturity that he has obtained in his 20 years as a musician, composer and producer. His sound has marked a generation close to rock in Spanish that has always been attentive to every scratch on his guitar and the sounds of his voice with División Minúscula.

Although In the times of the strange it comes to become his first great project as a soloist, Blake had already participated in the soundtrack of the movie I don’t know whether to cut my veins or leave them long, tape from 2013 where he made the song “Cuenta hasta 10”, in which he collaborated with Natalia Lafourcade.

“Replica”

“Replica” is that song that talks about loss and rupture. One Love? Not necessarily. Life takes courses and frees us from friends, family and countless important people. “Réplica” recounts the damage and talks about the difficulties and bitter drinks that it leaves to try to move on. All this to the happy and hopeful rhythm of its synthesizer and its fast rhythm.
