Jessica is on the road in support of her critically acclaimed sophomore album “Telephone / Telefono,” a bilingual recording that sees Jessica upping the ante on her already one-of-a-kind sound-clash of pop, psychedelic rock and punk cabaret, with fresh and emotive Spanish and English recordings.
A second generation Cuban and Mexican-American, Jessica felt it her duty to further explore her own Hispanic heritage on the band’s new record. Jessica pushed herself to use Spanish in ways she had never previously attempted; rewriting songs with the invaluable aid of her mates in Mexico City, paying close attention to the song’s translations, sentence structure and phrasing.
NPR’s Alt Latino says “Telephone/Teléfono, will no doubt appeal to fans across several continents as Hernandez created the songs in both English and Spanish versions … [songs] ‘Hummingbird’/‘Colibrí’ highlights how beautifully Hernandez manages this delicate balancing act — and, while she’s at it, warms up Motown-infused garage-rock with touches of tropical psych-cumbia and punk cabaret.”

“Ever since we heard the sliding horns of 2014’s ‘Sorry I Stole Your Man,’ we’ve paid witness to Jessica Hernandez & the Deltas’ experimentations with soul and burlesque rock ’n’ roll. Now, that distinctive sound is being employed to explore the resistant power of language.” – Remezcla
“Telephone / Telefono” is the follow up to Jessica’s acclaimed debut “Secret Evil” which NPR raved “has it all” and “song after song, one thing is consistent: a powerful, undeniable voice.”
