The muses of La Musa: Lucy Rose

Lucy Rose, former backing vocalist with the UK band Bombay Bicycle Club, started out recording her solo material at home. The music videos she then posted on YouTube were an immediate success, introducing the world to a fine voice and lyrics full of sincere emotion. Rose’s debut album, ‘Like I Used To’, made her more widely known as one of the leading artists on the British indie folk scene. She is now busy touring her latest LP, ‘Work It Out’ (2015), which has garnered even more fame for this young artist. Her influences include such singer-songwriters as Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, she opened for Elton John in 2013, and now she can fill venues all over Europe on her own merits. Opening the show is another young singer-songwriter,

Lucía Scansetti. The artist from Madrid presents her own new album, ‘Dimensions of Dialogue’. Today at sala Barts.

Arriben X Ambassadors

Fa gairebé una dècada tres dels quatre  components dels X Ambassadors grupo  de Ithaca, Nueva York,  deixaren les seves cases amb l’ambició d’arribar lluny en el món de la música. En la banda, hi ha dos germans , Sam y Casey Harris , que varen créixer entre  discs de segona mà de Beatles, Stones, Billy Joel i Joni Mitchell.

Els àlbums de  Johnny Cash i Woody Guthrie eren els preferits de son pare. L’àlbum debut de X Ambassadors, VHS, tracta d’una exploració que irònicament ha demostrat ser un viatge cap el passat, com indica el títul del disc, en referència a la tecnologia de les televisions i els vídeos de dècades passades.  Sam Harris, cantant i guitarrista ha escrit les cançons i el so de la banda abraça el rock alternatiu amb dosis èpiques i els emmiralla a bandes com Imagine Dragons, Fun, The Neigbourhood, Bastille o The 1975. Aquesta nit en concert a la sala Bikini.
