The United States is currently at war with its own identity as a country. Many are feeling a stronger and more disturbing “Us and Them” mentality than at any point in recent memory. Instead of running from the diversity that has always defined this nation, however, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas are embracing their duality on their new double album, Telephone/Telefono.
The sophomore follow-up to the band’s 2014 Secret Evil, Telephone/Telefono finds frontwoman Jessica Hernandez connecting with the fact that she’s a first-generation American born to a Cuban father and a Mexican mother. Recorded in Detroit and Mexico City, the double-LP is the same album done twice — once in English, and once in Spanish with slightly altered compositions and lyrics. “I wanted to feel like I can be more than one thing,” Hernandez told Consequence of Sound of her decision to record a bilingual album. “I can be American and proud but I can also be proud of my heritage and want aspects of that to be a huge part of my life creatively.”
