Dallas-based Latinx music American artist Rodrigo Caraballo-Marin is the brain and soul behind Blue Capricorn.

He’s a talented musician who enjoys mixing different genres in his music. This multi-talented artist is back with a brand-new single called PALO SANTO.

PALO SANTO is a rad mix of alternative and electronic sounds that really show off Blue Capricorn‘s talent in creating intriguing beats. A plethora of emotion and storytelling is brought to the table by the vocals, resulting in an atmospheric and haunting experience that you can’t get enough of.

Fans who enjoy artists like James Blake, Portishead, Nick Hakim, Tirzah, and DARKSIDE will be sure to catch the attention of this emotional tune.

PALO SANTO was totally spontaneous. Blue Capricorn went into the studio without any plan at all – no ideas, no lyrics, no rhythms, nothing.

Once he nailed down the first hook, everything else just flowed effortlessly. Considering that his previous work had a simpler and less complex vibe, he had a clear idea of making this song more intricate and multi-dimensional.

PALO SANTO is the fruit of the collaboration between Blue Capricorn and his buddy Michael Briggs. They recorded it in Briggs’ studio, using all sorts of cool stuff like midi, samples, theremin, and vocals to create the killer instrumentation.

Blue Capricorn has some thoughts on the track: “‘PALO SANTO is about desire and infatuation. It’s me being submissive and accepting of the idea of receiving love and being fragile to it and by it. Love wasn’t really something I was used to the last eight years of my life and I’ve learned so much about it until very recently. I didn’t know anything about love, and I’ve grown to be quite sensitive about it. It’s something I value more than ever”.

He’s finally getting comfortable talking about his crush and that feeling of longing. PALO SANTO’ is one of the more upbeat songs on Blue Capricorn‘s new EP, ¡AYÚDAME!, dropping on September 8, 2023.

Blue Capricorn is seriously making a splash in the music industry! This rising star’s music is bursting with amazing productions, boundless creativity, and a genuine love for what he does. Ensure you keep an eye on this exciting artist.
