Introducing…La Plata

They are a bit over 20 years old, but this Valencian quintet evokes the dark synth pop of the 1980s “new wave”, the exact starting point of Valencian scene that would put the Mediterranean coast on the map of avant-garde pop and international club culture, before paellas in car parks and all the other clichés from the bakalao route. La Plata take that baggage in Diego Escriche’s songs, increase the revolutions and crush it with intense guitars not unlike those of Triángulo de Amor Bizarro, with whom they share the producer Carlos Hernández, who worked with them on their EP Un atasco (2017) and debut LP Desorden(2018). Teenage angst from twenty years ago with one of the sensations of the season’s peninsular indie pop.
