Spring tour underway, SXSW shows start today

Downtown Boys are thrilled to share “Somos 
Chulas (No Somos Pendejas)” [link here], an infectious new punk track released in celebration of their current 2017 spring tour and their new union with Sub Pop. “Somos Chulas” is sung entirely in Spanish. The chorus – “Somos chulas, no somos pendejas!” or, in English, “I’m elegant/intelligent, I’m not dumb!” – is a declaration of one’s ability to decolonize one’s mind, and the importance of fearlessly unlearning the ways white supremacy conditions people to think and exist. “Somos Chulas” was recorded during their recent sessions with Guy Picciotto and Greg Norman at Electrical Audio in Chicago.
 
SOMOS CHULAS (NO SOMOS PENDEJAS)
Yo vuelo con mi head
Yo vuelo con mis veins
Yo vuelo con mi tongue
x2

Yo vuelo con mis fingers

Soy la misma
Soy la misma
Pero llevo otra corona

Soy la misma
Soy la misma
Y yo no soy tu madona 

Dame la opcion
Somos chulas
No somos pendejas

Tengo la instruccion
Cuando encontro, me enojo
Dame la opcion
Somos chulas
No somos pendejas

Cuando lo saben, cuando
Tienen comodo?
No tiene, no comodo
Y cuando lo saben, cuando
se Sacan?
No, no 
saca no

Yo no 
seguro money
Yo no 
seguro land
Yo no 
seguro ticket
x2

Yo no 
seguro ticket
x2

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
I fly with my head
I fly with my veins 
I fly with my  tongue
x2


I fly with my fingers
x2

I'm the same
I'm the same 
But I wear a different crown

I'm the same 
I'm the same
But I'm not your virgin madonna 

So give me an option 
Because I'm elegant / intelligent, I'm 
Not dumb!

I have the instructions
When I find out 
why, I'll get angry 
Give me an option

Because I'm elegant/intelligent, I'm
Not dumb!

When they find it, when are they comfortable?
Let's not be comfortable.

And when they take it all for themselves 
They take themselves
Don't take me no

don't got no money
don't got no land
don't got no ticket

don't got no ticket
