Why fight fire with fire when you can fight fire with fuego? No one knows the power of cross-culture sound more than bilingual soul sorceress Jessica Hernandez. She and her band The Deltas have recorded a double LP, Telephone/Telefono (the same record recorded twice, in both English and Spanish), and the first set of singles, “Run Too Far/Escapar” are electrified sprints to the finish, spiced with caffeinated confidence and jittery, glittery femme fatale ferocity. What these singles solidify is that Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas have found universality in duality by embracing home and heritage while remaining committed to the signature sultry rock n’ soul they’ve been making their own for the past seven years.
