Mexican pop-duo, JotDog have been teasing a new single for the last couple of weeks but on July 16th, the single dropped to fans in the digital world. “Hola” (Hello) takes JotDog back to their origins with a synth pop song that will have you singing along after just a few listens. If you liked JotDog’s previous hits like “Corazon Violento” (Violent Heart), you will love this new one.
Singer, Maria Barracuda and musician/producer Jorge Amaro are the creative force and member of JotDog. They came on the scene in 2009 with their first album. Since then they have released three albums and a buttload of singles. Just this year, JotDog has released three singles including their newest, “Hola”. If you count all the singles since their last album, we have seven different tracks that have filled up our time.
The previous singles on Apple Music for JotDog includes a song called, “Cuando Odio Sonreir” (When I Hate To Smile) which features JotDog with the Mexican rock band Riesgo De Contagio. That band is celebrating 30 years of music. The single is nothing like anything we heard from JotDog. Its completely hard rock but fun. Give it a listen.
Before that in February, JotDog released the single “Catástrofes Perfumadas” (Scented Catastrophes). The song is definitely in the pop genre though it doesn’t have that classic JotDog synth pop sound. It is definitely a different sound than what you might be used to with JotDog. Going back to “Hola”, I still hold my thoughts that it feels like the band has returned to its original sound. I hope this is an indication of where the band is going with their upcoming album.
