LA-based musician Samuel Jacob Lopez, Jr aka Coquí breaks onto the NewSickMusic pages with his latest release “Rewind”, the debut single from his new project.
The multi-instrumentalist, who has worked with Crystal Castles, RAC, Young the Giant, and toured with Walk the Moon, and 30 Seconds to Mars, describes “Rewind” as “a lullaby,” and you’ll hear the delicate balance of vulnerability and strength in his voice.
This song was inspired the passing of my abuela last year. At the time, I was over 5,000 miles away on tour in Europe. I decided to write a song about my family as a lullaby to help ease the pain. The first line I wrote was “When the weight of the world seems to pull you behind, just stop take a breath and rewind.” These were actually the words of my late grandmother. I wrote this song a few weeks before she passed away so it holds a very special place in my heart.
