Formed in 2016 by its two members, Ben Barsochinni and Aram “Max” Vehuni, slenderbodies is a musical and artistic project that came together in a particularly unusual way. Having met as college freshman at UC Santa Cruz, Ben and Max became friends and shared music throughout their time during school, The two worked together to shape and refine the tracks, and despite a distance of more than 300 miles separating Ben in Half Moon Bay and Max in Los Angeles, the two successfully finished and released their debut EP, ‘Sotto Voce’, and slenderbodies was born.
For those who are familiar with Glass Animals and Radiation City, you’ll find that slenderbodies’ identity falls somewhere between the two. Their signature sound combines airy falsetto vocals with masterfully delicate guitar riffs, set over present percussion and driving electronic beats. This year they’ve released their debut album Komorebi.

Today we will have the opportunity to see Glass Animals’ sophisticated live act in an indoor venue in Barcelona.
This recently announced concert by the Oxford quartet in Barcelona precedes their participation in Primavera Sound, when they will perform on one of the stages of the Parc del Fòrum.
Their first album, “Zaba”, opened the doors of the Olympus of electronic pop to them and was a hit in the United States, where they became even more popular than in their native England. With their sophisticated cross between bedroom pop and melancholic electronic music still marking the path to follow, the band fronted by Dave Bayley has slightly increased the pace on “How To Be A Human Being”, the second album that they release on Wolf Tone (Adele’s producer Paul Epworth’s label) and change of direction with which their sound becomes brighter and more upbeat. Tonight at Sala Apolo.
