Despite being known as the frontwoman of The Furrs, Gabriella Cohen‘s solo career took off with the release of two singles, “I Do not Feel So Alive” and “Sever The Walls.” Two songs that are part of her debut Full Closure and no Details (Dot Dahs Recordings, 2016), an album where the singer-songwriter of Brisbane amazes everyone with an eclectic pop of transparent lyrics and contagious sound.

Minimizing risks seems to be the best way to maintain a musical project in these difficult times. So far this has not been the case of La Iaia. Their second record, On és la magia? (Música Global, 2014), represented an absolutely turning point. A courageous and appreciated work radically different from what most of their fans probably expected. The folkie and friendly La Iaia became the first power-rock trio in catalan history and they will return playing live at Vida Festival next week.

El Fnac s’uneix al Dia Europeu de la Música amb la celebració d’una gran tarda musical a la Plaça de les Glòries gratuïta i oberta a tothom. Un triple cartell encapçalat pel directe dels escocesos Young Fathers (22 h), trio de diferents procedències a qui s’ha comparat amb Massive Attack per la seva capacitat de conjurar un so propi i multicultural i on se senten arrels africanes, hip-hop alternatiu i electrònica amb sensibilitat pop. Abans veurem als londinencs Ibibio Sound Machine (20.30 h) i la seva explosió de ritme i color que uneix la música africana i electrònica amb el funk, el disc i el post-punk i l’electro; i al duo format per Rosalía i Raül Refree (19.30 h), que presentaran ‘Los Angeles’ (2017), un dels discos de l’any, en el qual ofereixen una proposta que barreja la tradició flamenca amb l’experimentació.
UK band Everything Everything has dropped a new single entitled ”Can’t Do,” the lead-track off their forthcoming, James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Depeche Mode) produced album A Fever Dream. This is the band’s fourth album. It’s the follow up to the critically-lauded Top 10 album “Get To Heaven”, an album that can now be seen to have been incredibly prescient given the current state of the world. It was their third consecutive Top 10 album, after LPs “Man Alive,” and “Arc.”
