Single Review: La Sinclair – “Acapulco Gold”

Ana Carla Sinclair is a singer/songwriter from Los Angeles, California. Her childhood may seem like one rooted in fairytale, given its eventfulness in shaping her identity over time, although it is anything but. From the moment Sinclair was born, she was already exposed to a vast American and European celebrity clientele on a regular basis, a direct result of her father’s success as a restaurateur in Acapulco. Equally impactful to her mindset was her curiosity toward the legend of a hidden sativa strand, said to have been grown by God on the mountains around Acapulco Bay, which solidified her stance on the societal efficacy of marijuana.

These experiences inspired Sinclair’s latest single, “Acapulco Gold,” her fifth release under the artist name La Sinclair. Her unified stylistic and thematic approach to the song is its primary draw, combining anecdotes from her father’s prime with weed-laden imagery and fittingly spacious, psychedelic synth textures. Sinclair’s vocal tonality is a comfortable fit in the same way, as it complements the instrumentation with a type of nostalgic mellowness. Once the chorus hits, I appreciate just how that spaciousness increases, and especially how the warmth of her harmonies benefits the pacing of the song. Having listened to Sinclair’s output thus far, there is no doubt of her capability to potentially produce substantial full-length material down the line.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
