“My new album is brimming with themes: Code switching- how you change yourself slightly depending on who you’re with and what is happening. The concept of a chameleon- how the animal changes colors based on what environment they’re in.

People give the advice of “being yourself” but they don’t talk about how there’s not just one version of yourself. There’s multiple that add up to who you are. As for the title itself, chameleon comes from the Greek word “khamai” meaning “on the ground, earth” and “leon” meaning “lion” (Hunjiya herself is a leo).

A play on the track “Working All the Time”, which reflects and critiques the toxic cycle of overwork for little payoff under capitalism, “Dia Libre en el Yanky” is what Xenia calls ‘a triumphant summer jam’- it maintains much of the original track’s spirit, including the repeated motif ‘and it was my day off,’ while layering in a cutting cypher and vocal improvisation. ‘Marco and I had a blast producing this track that felt like a celebration of the original song and a summer victory lap for Una Rosa,’ remarks Xenia.
