Local Bands: Oso Leone

There is music that is naturally beautiful and there is music that is artificially beautiful. The first hardly needs any make up to enhance the beauty; the second also radiates beauty but needs a little postproduction. There is a third and rare category to which Oso Leone belong:  the beauty of their music is not only intrinsic, but they also know how to embellish it with masterful touches. The fact that musical golden ratio of the Mallorca band was destined for universal fame was already obvious on Mokragora (2013), a folktronic fantasy that caught the attention of half the planet. Gallery Love, their third album, is like a map of an imaginary glass city. Jingles, transparencies, sparkles, reflections… Beauty that is at once fragile and solid. Natural and artificial splendour.
