Cuco's releases his debut album Para Mi on Interscope / Polydor. Standout tracks include Feelings, a smooth and sultry song that follows Cuco as he attempts to find himself again, a relatable sentiment accented by lush horns and colourful instrumentation. The new track was featured as Zane Lowe's World Record on Apple Music's Beats 1. A journey into Cuco's psyche, the new song alongside previously released tracks Bossa No Sé and Hydrocodone underscores a more complete story on his forthcoming debut album with deeper moments of reflection and self awareness amidst relatable songs of young love.
The 20 year old Omar Banos, better known as Cuco, has found a young and passionate audience for his music, which combines earnest Spanglish love lyrics with an inscrutable deep-meme millennial sense of humour to create a persona that is at once carefree and emotionally involved — the way teenagers are. His brand of dream pop takes cues from jazz and hip-hop, combining homemade drum packs and loops with self-taught keyboard, trumpet, guitar and his sing-talking cadence to create twinkly lullabies.
