The singles campaign for Javiera Mena’s latest album, Otra era, continues with a picturesque video of “Sincronía, Pegaso”. Similar to her video for “Hasta la verdad”, a single from her breakthrough 2010 LP, Mena, the Chilean pop icon roams through the wilderness searching for a home and some comrades.
The vast, otherworldly scenes are a bit different than what’s on record. “Sincronía, Pegaso” takes place more in Mena’s head as she sings her bashful thoughts about the feelings she has for the one across the room. Yet, the fluttering synth-pop production, her wide-eyed chorus and her pressing questions (“is it coincidence we are here, or is it pure synchronicity?” she asks) call for something equally epic in scale.
