In a tasty follow-up to his sugary-sweet September release, “The Dead Come Talking,” Roe Kapara has unveiled his feel-good, dance-worthy new single, “Fajita!” Accompanied by a kitschy lyric video that features Kapara hidden beneath a brown paper bag with an exaggerated frowning face on the front, Kapara is seen dancing with abandon in a bed of tiny yellow flowers, only further enhancing the groovy new track.

“Fajita!” exudes an enchanting, effervescent aura, particularly evident in the track’s chorus, where Kapara whimsically croons, “Too silly/I’m too goofy for your touch/I need it/Fills me up/$450 paid for dinner at the bar/Fajita/Burn my tongue.” Across his lyrical playfulness, we find a juxtaposition of lightheartedness against the deeper cravings of the heart.

Beyond the clever wordplay, what truly radiates in “Fajita!” is Kapara‘s vocal delivery, which is nothing short of infectious. His voice dances gracefully against the vibrant, indie strings that serve as the perfect backdrop.

“‘Fajita!’ is for the people that feel too silly to be loved or taken seriously as a romantic partner,” he shares. “It also accepts and celebrates a lack of competence when searching for an intimate connection.”

Earlier this year, Roe Kapara joined the idobi Radio team at our idobi Studios in the heart of Los Angeles for a captivating double-performance of “Everyone’s Dying (Grandma’s Drunk Again)” and “Everything’s Fine (Nuke’s Song).” Additionally, he also tackled a stripped-back rendition of Cage The Elephant’s “Cigarette Daydreams.” You can check out his performances with idobi below.
