Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas describe their music as "Latin-punk-Motown-soul." The Detroit band released two versions of its latest album: An English version called "Telephone," and the Spanish "Teléfono." Regardless of the language, Hernandez and her band bring a raw garage-rock energy to their songs.
