About the inspiration for his songs, Un León Marinero tells Remezcla, “Sometimes it is hard for us to say it, but we come to this world to feel things and fall in love unconditionally because it is that feeling that can lead us to do unimaginable things and to reach places within ourselves that we rarely get to know.”

In the music video for “Aroma a Rosas,” Un León Marinero manifests the romance of the song. He shares tender moments with a love interest around his hometown. Un León Marinero beautifully captures the rush of falling in love in this video. 

“The video was born from the idea of ​​seeing what a couple’s day-to-day is like,” he says. “Nothing special, just you and her, where the place doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter what you do when you know that what awaits you in life will be shared with someone else. It’s a taste of finding peace in everyday life.”

He continues, “The song is about innocence, letting go, falling, not thinking — just feeling, sharing your rhythm, and not minding to fail or be wrong. You do what is in your power to see that the person you care about the most is okay.”

“I have always believed that love is seen in those moments where absolutely nothing happens, because the quieter you are, the easier it is to read the eyes in front of you,” he says.
