I can’t find out much about this band, but I recently bought the album, Año Santo, which looks like their third from what little I can find out there. This stunning video should help you to make up your own mind about this band from Spain. After hearing it, and subsequently putting it on repeat, I felt a little guilty that we’re not paying attention to a lot of foreign bands. Sure, we give the Swedes, Icelanders and Brits their fair share of attention, but is it really too much of a challenge to listen to music in another language? After hearing this, I will definitely be searching out more bands from other places… So, who are these bands, you guys? Let us know via comments!

Hi! Good choice! I’m from Spain, and this group is one of the top indie groups in our scene at the moment (for main radio stations and festivals as Primavera Sound or Fib Benicássim). But not only in Spain but also in Portugal and South America. They’re from Galicia, a spanish region in the north west, near Portugal. And they’re under the protection of probably the best spanish group, Los Planetas. Take a listen to this other song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frkAXbBroOc
If you want me to update you about spanish groups, just say it!
Congratulations for the site! Hasta pronto!
Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? With thanks
Hi! I’m from Galicia and I’ve seen them live several times there. They’re amongst the most famous Spanish indie bands at the moment.
They released two albums (the self-titled debut and “Año santo”) plus “El hombre del siglo V”, a collection of early demos and some other previously unreleased stuff.
They toured Mexico recently and had a gig or two in Sweden but otherwise I don’t think they’re well-known abroad. In my opinion they’re very good and deserve much more success but it’s not very usual for most media to look at pop music coming from countries other than UK/US/Sweden. We don’t even listen to Portuguese rock in Spain, and they’re our neighbours, so go figure…
