Bratty by Alan Cortes

Mexican bedroom-pop project BRATTY continues to experiment with a little help from Spain’s all-female rockers Hinds on “¿Y Cómo?” The single comes after Culiacán, Sinaloa native Jenny Juárez, the mind behind BRATTY, collaborated with Madrid duo Yawners ahead of her next release Es Mi Fiesta Y Si Quiero Hago Un, due January 5 of next year. Unlike previous albums, which contained little to no features from outside musicians, the new EP is entirely composed of collaborations like a “birthday party, and the collaborators are my guests. A celebration of music.”

Thanks to Hinds’ contribution on the production front, this newest song utilizes a more garage-rock leaning sound as opposed to Juárez and her usual bedroom-pop forte. Amid gleaming guitars straight out of a coming-of-age movie soundtrack, her dulcet vocals, alongside serenading from Hinds, keep the track’s overall energy lighthearted musically. While evoking passion for the music itself, it’s evident that both parties involved are simply having fun and trying out something new.

Even with the party angle that Juárez is taking here, there’s a lingering sense of melancholy in her voice and the atmosphere of the instrumentation. “Most topics in these songs are of love and heartbreak, which is always an easy-to-go topic,” says Juárez, whose priorities seem to align with the collaborations. And considering this is the first time BRATTY, whose first album was produced solely by herself in her bedroom, is working with other artists, the resulting product gels very smoothly while remaining in line with BRATTY’s lane of bedroom-pop.

Words: David Sosa

The new EP Es Mi Fiesta Y Si Quiero Hago Un is due January 5, 2023 via Universal Music Mexico. “¿Y Cómo?” is now out on all streaming services. Follow Bratty via her website where you can find all her social media links.
