Paulo Londra's return to music has been productive. After a forced hiatus due to legal problems with his former record company, the popular Argentinian singer is releasing new music. After premiering the songs “Plan A,” “Chance” and a successful session at producer Bizarrap's house, Londra surprised his fans again with the release of “Nublado.”
It supposes a radical change of style and aesthetic. With the song, the young singer demonstrates his musical versatility with a turn to poprock under an obvious North American influence. From the first electric guitar chord, "Nublado" recalls the sounds of Blink-182, Sum 41 andGreen Day. Londra's catchy vocals are also inspired by these bands, as are the outfits worn in the music video.
The video takes place in a high school, and the script revolves around a love story that leaves Londra “cloudy." He manages to cope with the situation thanks to the support of his classmates, always ready to take him on a night out.
"Now the cloudy environment doesn't look so bad, after one night you suddenly just walk away without saying anything," he sings in the chorus. His voice, full of energy, stands out above the instrumental base, played only by drums, guitar and bass.
The participants of the 'High School Musical' are the protagonists of the Elite TV show. They imitate a talent show in front of a jury, where students demonstrate their skills on stage. Before them, the public is bored by their inability to captivate any of the judges. That changes with Londra, who livens the party when he jumps on stage. Finally, he and his band get the attendants out of their chairs, singing and dancing to the rhythm of “Nublado.”
The most recent release is one of the most successful videos for Londra. Since releasing on June 30, it has already accumulated more than 7 million views on YouTube, and the figure will continue torise.
"I like the rocker Paulo too much," commented a user. Another celebrated that there is “more music like this, clean, without drugs, women full of plastic, without violence. Fresh, different and original music.”
In addition to the surprising pop rock piece, Londra released “Luces,” an electronic song designed to be a hit at nightclubs. It seems Londra is willing to try all the genres until he finds the ultimate formula for him. With his signing to Warner Records, he recovered the energy lost during his time with Ovy on The Drums, the record company he separated from two years ago, and which he had to fight in court to claim his copyrights.
