In the second official video for their beautiful single “Torbellino”, Chilean duo Marineros bring us into the heart of their every-day reality – or should we say realities?

Late 2015, the Santiago-based group finally brought us their long-awaited debut album, “O Marineros”. Containing all of their best singles as well as some new material, it perfected the duo’s characteristic mix of airy vocals, electronic rhythms and nostalgia.

A few months later – in the middle of Chilean winter – they released a mesmerizing single “Torbellino”. Earlier this year, just before the peak of another winter in Santiago, the song received a spontaneous visual treatment from Soledad Aguila and Soledad Puentes, who is 1/2 of Marineros – with Constanza Espina being the other half.

This casual video employs simple but beautiful settingss to communicate a message of love and how it should always remain open for life’s constant changes, something we should welcome with openness, and even aloofness to a certain degree.

Now as summer is coming back to Chile’s capital, Marineros offer us another video for this unforgettable song, once again directed by Soledad Puentes.

A low-altitude drone-like view of their home floor gives us a romantic scenery of the duo’s inspiration-to-creation process, hovering between Constanza and Soledad, with a turntable, Kawai synth, notepad, books, flowers – and a stick guitar – scattered all around them.

“We can have different versions of the same situation, or of oneself,” they explained as they shared this video, “and coexist in parallel universes.”
