Buscabulla continues their ascent towards latin-pop stardom with this second EP, including 4 new tracks of future leaning music with a retro soul.
Single “Tártaro” was inspired by Frankie Ruiz, a Puerto Rican cult figure and an icon in the “salsa erótica” movement during the 1980s. While “Frío” is the band’s interpretation of a ‘lamento,’ a type of grief song that’s popular in Latin America, and features vocals by recent tourmate Helado Negro.
“‘Frío’ is our psychedelic ,” says Buscabulla lead vocalist Raquel Berríos. “The song is a conversation between myself and Roberto (Helado Negro) about me not standing the NYC cold and feeling displaced.”
“Buscabulla make music that is 100% appealing: slinky, sexy, Spanish-language. They’ve been perfecting their signature sound—an irresistible, retro-tinged mix of psych, soul, Caribbean music and everything in between.”

“Intense sophistication and innovation… a seamless tropical revolution with smart, cool Caribbean groove.”
“Minimal yet decadent sounds comprise lush drums, ’80s synths, and dreamy vocals.”
“I[Single “Frío”] is the sonic manifestation of a beach daydream, concocted from underneath the covers as the wind whistles by a frosted window.”
Buscabulla is Raquel Berríos and Luis Alfredo del Valle. Born and raised in Puerto Rico but based out of New York, they create a hybrid they like to call “the Caribbean music of the future.”
