Local Bands: Moon Vision

Two music lovers who know each other studying musicology. A union fruit of a friendship, accentuated by a great connection in the creative field, in the way of understanding music and life. After different projects, where the two producers made a search for their sound identity, Moon Vision was born. Electronic music duo with great touches of Lo-Fi, Pop and R’n’B. They define their music as warm, organic and sensual, with a dreamy point. Both producers have a predilection for the scenarios, where they try to create a communion with the audience and defend the songs completely live. Moon Vision is a band of good music, versatile and eager to seduce the hearts of the public.

Local Bands: Silent James

There are artists who only know how to write from anger, and there are those who know how to turn everyday life, the day to day, into a universal pop song. Jaume Benedito is the latter, as you can clearly appreciate after just one listen to Oh, Tokyo!, an uncomplicated story of a journey to the Japanese capital with a declaration of love included: “I always wanted to be the man who took you to Japan”, says the chorus. This everyday life epic performed according to the teachings of maestros of refined chamber pop such as Neil Hannon, Edwyn Collins and Jens Lekman, is the backbone of Silent James. His songs are fleeting embraces of life to enjoy a sunny morning, to cheer up an afternoon or to let yourself be carried away by a calm nostalgia, the type that can condense our whole story into the best song in the world. Today in concert at 1PM at Centre Cultural Albareda, Primavera Club.

Local Bands: Tiger Menja Zebra

They’re not here to make friends, or to make you feel better, or to console you, as the title of “Hipster Genocide” makes clear, the track that opens “Anarquia i mal de cap”, their third album and the final album of the “Trilogy of the Self-Destruction of the Human Being”, by “Tiger Menja Zebra“. Sowing electric winds and collecting electronic storms from “Com començar una guerra” (2012), rising from the ashes of the heroes of the postrock of Granollers, “Camping”, the noise of “Tiger Menja Zebra” is relentless in this new album, which is presented with an extended formation of four members, with two drummers and two bassists that cushion the electronics, voices and screams. “Worn-out servilism, disappointment, anger that leads to disorder, no return”.

You can be with them or against them, but if you decide to be with them, don’t expect a pat on the back.
