Jose Gonzalez‘s stripped-down acoustic version of The Knife’s ubiquitous breakout hit allows the lyrics to take the forefront, and the crux of the song—one night of thrilling anxiety, passion, and consummation—appears as those moments often do: in slow motion. It’s an absolutely devastating interpolation of the track that strips away everything except for a voice and guitar, letting the words speak for themselves.
Having been compared to The Jesus & Mary Chain, BRMC is one of the best alternative rock bands on the scene today. Their dirty and powerful sound, their dark folk and the intensity of their live concerts have made their shows one of the must-sees of July. Peter Hayes, Robert Been and Leah Shapiro come to Barcelona with their latest album, ‘Wrong Creatures’ Tonight at Apolo.
This Baltimore trio is made up of the deep-voiced Samuel T. Herring, bassist William Cashion and keyboardist and programmer Gerrit Whelmers. Future Islands got their start more than a decade ago, and made it big with their fourth album, ‘Singles’ (2014), which included their international hit ‘Seasons (Waiting on You)’. They’re back with a new effort, ‘The Far Field’ (2017), and more of their electro-pop full of romanticism that combines moments of light with moments of darkness and epic sounds. Tonight at Poble Espanyol.

Ville à Dômat: Feels Like Summer
This American band originally from Alaska and led by John Gourley lands in Barcelona to present their eighth album, ‘Woodstuck’, their most commercial effort to date, which includes collaborations with Danger Mouse and Mike D from the Beastie Boys. Tonight at Sala Apolo.
Grand Pax is 24-year-old Annie Pax, a London-based singer-songwriter whose debut EP is called ‘Phase’. The four-track collection will be the first introduction to Pax and her intimate songwriting, best summed up on the spacey and reverb heavy “Comet,” a song about an impending apocalypse putting romantic strife into context.
Her tender and wistful singing will create an incomparable atmosphere on the 13th July. At the age of only eight years old, the artist moved to Northern Ireland, and a few years later settled in London where she was discovered by Mike Batt, the producer and composer known for creatingThe Wombles, who introduced her to the British music scene. This singer from Georgia rediscovered her traditional, sensitive and delicately passionate style; elegant pop with hints of jazz and blues which will leave no one unmoved. Tonight at Festival Jardins de Pedralbes.
