Xenia Rubinos is back with a new song called “Did My Best” and comes with a new music video by photographer and filmmaker Mario Rubén Carrión. “I felt like this video was my own healing ritual,” Rubinos said in a statement. “It is my wish that this song can be a resting place for someone’s feelings, that they can feel and wrap themselves in it when they need it.” Check out Did My Best below.
“This is a song about sudden loss and wanting to see that person you never have to say goodbye to,” added Rubinos. “I remember the moment when I felt like I was done singing. It’s like crying so hard that you forget why you cried in the first place. When we listened back, the hair on my arms and legs was upright and I felt my face get hot. I suddenly felt that old familiar feeling. It was then, in the basement, during an eerie quarantine evening with fireworks and ambulance sirens, suddenly remembering why I was singing. “
The new song follows Rubinos’ “Who Shot Ya” and the Helado Negro collaboration “I Fell in Love”. Read more about Rubinos in Pitchfork’s “100 Best Songs of 2020” list.
