about

Katya Lopez San Francisco, California

Katya was born and raised in San Francisco under the care of her Puerto Rican mother and Cuban father. The house was filled with everything from traditional Caribbean music to psychedelic 60s rock.

She has begun unveiling her secrets one by one. Here is a little glimpse into her Latin 60s pop-electronic world filled with beehives, cholas, pistoleras, electronic jellyfish, and dance parties.

Track Name: candy-coated love
Candy-coated love
Love, candy-coated love
I love your love. Your candy-coated love

Your love it tastes so sweet
I use it when I bake
I sprinkle it on top
until I get a tooth ache

Your lips they taste divine
just like cherry wine
the taste of lemon drops
when your lips touch mine

I can't get enough
gotta have it all
gotta have every last
drop of you

you gotta handle it
'cuz I gotta craving
so there's nothing
you can do

my sweet tooth goes in overdrive when you're around
you give me a sugar high - please don't ever let me down

Love, candy-coated love
I love your love. Your candy-coated love

Indulging in your kiss
I never wanna miss
there is no better heavenly dessert than this
intoxicated by
the taste of apple pie
sugar-addicted to your love
that's why you got me

if unicorns are made for riding (you got me)
then it's candy-coated love you're providing (that's why you got me)
your sugar high - it keeps me going (you got me)
glitter frosting is over-flowing

if unicorns are made for riding
then it's candy-coated love you're providing
your sugar high - it keeps me going
glitter frosting is over-flowing

Love, candy-coated love
I love your love. Your candy-coated love
Track Name: 60s girl
Come on, baby let me see you get real crazy
Get all cinematic it's dramatic, baby
I'll be your director so make sure you look ready
Let's take turns and share the camera, hold it, steady

Come on
Shake it baby, twist and shout
Come on
Bettie Page, eat your heat out

I'll be your 60s girl (4x)

Get that liquid liner, extra thick
'Till you perfect the art of a beauty bombshell
I'll take your picture 'till we get the shot
'Cuz girly you're so lovely, tilt your head up, hold it, steady

Come on
Shake it baby, twist and shout
Come on
Bettie Page, eat your heart out

I'll be your 60s girl
(twist and shout)

Pile on the hair real high
Vintage sex appeal, oh my
She's got that 60s girl group style
She looks for ways to make you smile

(make you smile)

I'll be your 60s girl
(twist and shout)
Track Name: Pistolera
I came home last night and walked through the door
I expected to find you there but I found so much more
I heard the sounds of lovers
a think smell of deceit
and in that single moment I changed from a lady to a pistolera

say your prayers one by one
you're no God-fearing man, you're a son of a gun
dame paciencia en este momento

oh oh oh soy pistolera, pistolera

eeny meeny miny moe
who will be the first to go?
should I pull my trigger on her first
or let her watch the show?

diablo y sin vergüenza
they're both equal parts
and my light of justice
is about to shoot through their hearts

say your prayers one by one
you're no God-fearing man, you're a son of a gun
dame paciencia en este momento

oh oh oh soy pistolera, pistolera

soy pistolera
mi corazón está rompiendo
no puedo olvidar
ahora estoy llorando
