some details about this delightfully alternative band. With Spanish roots and an American electronic punk influence, the quartet–made up by Ekhi Lopetegi (vocalist/bassist), Guillermo Astrain (guitarist), Unai Lazcano (keyboardist), and Igor Escudeo (drummer)–set out to make people dance. The Barcelona-based group more widely exposed itself to the press by remixing for The xx, Franz Ferdinand, and Cold Cave. The boys’ successful debut at SXSW festival in Austin Texas, first 2 record releases, and tour with Swedish groups jj and Miike Snow got them ready for a triumphant launch of their newest album, Subiza this last March and a worldwide distribution deal with New York label, True Panther Sounds.
The four-piece band layers their tracks with broken female chants, synth-pop keyboards, punkish vocals, polished grooves and an after-hours sensation: what I like to deem “space cadet, dance vibes.” Go on, lose yourself in reverie.
