Alex Anwandter: “Cómo Puedes Vivir Contingo Mismo?”
Another really nice song and video I found on the Iberoamerican pop blog club fonograma. Alex Anwandter is based in Santiago de Chile, his single “Cómo Puedes Vivir Contingo Mismo?” (“How can you live with yourself”) and the album “Rebeldes” were released last year on the artist’s label 5PM. The lyrics of the song deal with brutal murder of a young gay man called Daniel Zamudio, who was killed by neo-Nazis. The murder sent a shockwave throughout the country, Zamudio family revealed to the media that Anwandter had been his favorite artist. With the beautiful new video shot at a bar in Santiago (which is anything else but shocking), another homage to voguing culture as shown in “Paris is Burning”, the song has a real potential to spread around the world. You can currently download the song together with two nice remixes on Anwandter’s website. If you want to stream the whole album click on “Home”.
