Julian Lamadrid Drops Track and Video for “Patience”

The Mexican singer-songwriter explores a more reflective space with the new track.

Mexican singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Julian Lamadrid dropped his new track, “Patience,” along with a music video. The song, his first release since this April’s “My Time,” (and since our chat with him) is a synth-heavy song that leans into a lot of the musical influences he’s been exploring with his past few releases. While the minimalist synth production, paired with a pounding beat, is a quintessential fall/winter sound, the steel drums in the post-chorus breakdown take us straight to a tropical summer place. In short, it’s a perfect song for those still transitioning from summer to fall.

The song’s lyrics detail being patient and putting your trust in the universe. It’s about allowing things to flow the way they are and not letting it overtake you. Sounds like something we all could use right about now. The song shifts to Spanish in the second verse, which is sung from his father’s perspective. 

According to Julian, Patience is a practice of minimalism and tranquility. It’s a reminder to take it easy and trust in the universe. The first verse acts as an inner dialogue, a self-reminder that luck isn’t involved in any of this, it’s all about patience and persistence. The second verse is from the perspective of my father singing to me, acknowledging my frustrations, and reminding me to stay calm and keep dancing. Now more than ever, Patience is a virtue.”

The music video, which Julian directed himself, is a colorful dive into a dance breakdown, which sees Julian sing directly to the camera, interpret the lyrics through his dancing, and intermittently flashes visuals from his childhood. It was also shot completely in one take. 

“Patience” is part of a multitude of singles the Arista Records signee has released since his debut album, “Mala Noche,” which was released last year to very positive reviews. Check out the track and its music video right here.
