Carla Morrison – Hasta la piel

There’s nothing like the innocence of young love. Mexico’s Carla Morrison uses her ever-angelic indie-pop vocals to depict that forever-feeling in “Hasta La Piel” or “to the skin.” Two starry-eyed lovers dance jovially in a bar, get (real!) tattoos and share an ice cream cone as Morrison’s signature romantic lyrics and featherlight vocals set the mood… ♪♫♪¸.•°*”˜˜”*°• ♥ it..

Carla Morrison – Hasta la piel

Born in Tecate in Baja, Mexico, Carla Morrison has a magical voice. Morrison’s 2012 studio album is sung in Spanish and titled Dejenme Llorar, which translates as “let me cry”—a fair warning that she leans hard on her sadder musings here. “Apagué mi Mente” sets the tone, with spare bass lines slow-dancing with lilting piano notes before Morrison’s beautifully haunting voice comes in with cellos. She sings that turning off her mind and igniting her soul is the only thing she can do to make sense of this world. “Me Encanta” picks up the pace a little, with a semi-sleepy shuffle providing a scooting rhythm alongside organ drones and Morrison singing like a young Hope Sandoval. The percussion here and throughout Dejenme Llorar is a unique-sounding concoction of drums and other household materials, like jugs of water and trash cans. The album was recorded in Morrison’s apartment, with producers Andres Landon and Juan Manuel Torreblanca from the group Torreblanca. In the standout song “Hasta la Piel,” the deep resonance of a mariachi guittarón nicely contrasts her feathery vocals.

Carla Morrison – Hasta la piel Lyrics:
No te quiero perder.
que la distancia se devore nuestra miel.
y perdamos la fe.
No te quiero tener.
y cuando menos piense perderte otra vez,
me duele hasta piel.
Dentro de mí,
semillas tengo de ti
y sin ti.
pueden querer morir.
Quiero sentarme a llorar,
sacar de adentro mil cosas
que te quiero decir,
me siento tan debil sin ti.
Quiero guardarme a la moral,
darte unos besos que quizá.
tenga que robar
de tu boca, mía
(mía, mía).
No te quiero perder,
que el amor se acabe y vuelvas a querer.
otro sabor a miel.
No te quiero tener,
porque tanto te amor, comienzo a conocer.
la intensidad de mi ser.
Dentro de mí,
semillas tengo de ti.
y sin ti.
pueden querer morir.
Quiero sentarme a llorar,
sacar de adentro mil cosas.
que te quiero decir,
me siento tan debil sin ti.
Quiero guardarme a la moral,
darte unos besos que quizá.
tenga que robar.
de tu boca, mía.
(mía, mía).
