“An appropriately escapist work of Latin dream-pop, Sin Miedo is set in a rosy Venusian paradise in the cosmos, where Uchis flits about as a benevolent, breathy pop seraph…A genre anarchist, she whips up one-of-a-kind songs that speak to a growing generation of cool kids who occupy the space between Anglo American and Latin American cultures.”—Los Angeles Times
“Her second album Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞, sung for the first time almost entirely in Spanish, is a heart-struck devotional to the genres she loved growing up in the U.S. and Colombia.”—NPR
