G5 premieres the official video for the Florida-based group’s latest single, “No Es Igual,” exclusively with Tejano Nation.
The song is about hope and hurt, along with the balance of emotions they create. “A bond that is broken will never be the same, but there is still hope,” G5 vocalist Ricky Garcia tells Tejano Nation.
The track will be part of the group’s upcoming as of yet untitled album featuring mixes mastered by Art of Holler and tracks produced by Jonathan Espinoza and the late Mario Vigil, who was a big part of their musical endeavors. Vigil died of colon cancer in February. “He was such an inspiration to us and he is greatly missed,” said Garcia.
The visual features a relationship that becomes broken due to infidelity but the hope of a new love that comes from moving past a heartbreak.
G5, or Garcia5, is a group of five brothers formed in 2001 and inspired by their late father Fidel Garcia, who was a drummer, bajo player and later became the lead singer for a band along with his brothers and brothers-in-law. Coming from a migrant family, the five brothers, Fidel Jr, Roel, Erik, Joey, and Ricky, were constantly moving about every six months. Going to school, working in the fields picking tomatoes and in their spare time they turned to what followed them everywhere, their father’s music.
