Perfume de color is a love song to imperfection, an ode to acceptance, and loving all aspects of ourselves: good and bad (thorns and petals) as necessary parts of our whole selves.
This song was written for a short film, by director Nikki Mejia, called Pétalos. It was a collaboration with the movie’s soundtrack composer, Alain Emile. Recorded by Kevin X. Rodríguez at Phat Productions, in Boquerón, with William Pabón.
“After watching the short, I wanted to write a song that felt like it belonged in the story, but I wanted it to be true to myself as well.” —G.S.
