Professional cosplayer Santana has released an album featuring nerdy music, Hero In Me, and now I am going to review it.
The whole thing is about empowering yourself and following your own loves. The album mixes country, pop, and a bit of rock into a unique sound. Though only three songs on the album are really nerd related.
Cosplaying Just for Me, which has its own video shot by Flashbang Cosplay Capture, is about cosplaying and empowering yourself. Bit a nice rock vibe to it. Personally I have a hard time believing someone who sells prints of herself and has a Patreon page for people to give her feed back on what to cosplay next is really “cosplaying just for me.” Though the song is more than just about cosplaying and is a fun listen.
Gamer Boy, is a love song . Though I am not sure if she is singing to a boy who play games or an actual Nintendo Game Boy. I like it either way.
Hero in Me is about another empowering song drawing some geeky related imagery and lyrics.
Three of the other songs on this album are from a previous non nerdy album, nice songs to listen to just not why I am here for. The other song is Winder Soldier, which as much as I want to believe is most likely not about Bucky Barnes. Again nice romantic song, just not what I am looking for.
The music and singing are both top-notch though. Something even non nerds can enjoy. I recommend it for anyone wanting something a little different from most.
I would love to see more work from Santana in the music genre especially some more nerdy songs add to her repertoire.
