Colombian band based in Melbourne, Pal Mar, is pleased to announce the release of their latest single, "Despiertos," available on April 12.

Melbourne, Australia - March 30, 2024

"Despiertos" marks the next step in Pal Mar's musical evolution, blending latin pop with sounds of dancehall and afrobeats that create a contagious and energetic mix. The song invites listeners to immerse themselves in the present moment, leaving behind fears and worries, and embracing love and connection. It's an invitation to live without reservations, to risk it all for that special relationship, challenging the fear of the future and embracing the present with intensity. This song captures the essence of living without inhibitions or worries.

The music video, produced by District Down Under, is a visual representation of the connection and synchrony between two people who fully surrender to their feelings. With the notable collaboration of dancers Felipe Coral and Natalia Cuervo, the video conveys the idea of vibrating on the same frequency, without resistance, in a world where only the present moment and the connection they feel for each other matter.


Isabella and Juan, both musicians and producers, composed the song, with the collaboration of Samuel Huertas in production and mixing, to give a fresh touch to this composition.

"We're excited to share 'Despiertos' with the world," says Isabella. "It's a song that reflects our passion for music and our determination to live each moment to the fullest. We hope this song resonates with our fans as much as it does with us."
