Sebastian Portillo Drops Unforgettable New Song, "Circulation"

Quick Thoughts: Sebastian Portillo has long been one of our favorite artists at Qore. After exploding onto the scene in 2020 with his first two singles, 2000 Degrees and Costa Rica, we immediately recognized a star in the making. Sebastian’s crooning vocals, catchy lyrics, and ear for melody all come together to create his hook-heavy pop sound that we just can’t get enough of. His first release of 2021, Circulation, offers a slightly more left-leaning sound than we heard from him last year, with a steady bass providing the perfect amount of funk. As was the case with his first two singles, The Florida native proves once again that he is an incredible songwriter whose imagery-driven lyricism and breezy melodies allow him to stand out in the crowded indie-pop genre. Across just three singles, Sebastian has already demonstrated a remarkable versatility, a rare quality that suggests an extremely bright future for the young artist. If you haven’t had the chance to check out Sebastian’s music yet, it’s about time you do. As he begins to drop more music, we can’t wait to see him take off; it’s not a matter of if, it’s a matter of when. Stream on Spotify:
