There’s a lot more to Costa Rica than things synonymous with paradise– the country is breeding some of the world’s most impressive sounds.
One of the country’s leading indie bands, Cocofunka, has a lead singer setting off to make some waves of his own. Javier Arce announced his brand new solo project with a gorgeous video on Noisey at the end of 2016, and debuted his trio-format live show in the 2017 Envision Festival.
Arce’s new project leans toward the electronic side of things, enveloping the tropical sounds that surround him and fusing them with modern ambient beats, not unlike the new wave of latin electronic heard seeping into the rest of the world these days. His unique, introspective sound melds with piercing lyrics, creating an experience that will both knock you down and tempt your feet to dance. Arce released the singles Quise Fuego on August 2017 and Onces on January 2018. Gaining attention from Konbini, KEXP, KCRW, Remezcla and Sounds and Colours, Arce started his first Costa Rican tour playing three prestigious festivals including Epicentro 2018.
