The muses of La Musa: Rose Gray

Noting Primal Scream, Massive Attack and Saint Etienne amongst her influences, Rose Gray has been building a name for herself as a rather uniquely British pop star. Lacing her music with her own blend of 90s dance melodies and 00s indie-pop vocals, the budding artist has been creating quite a buzz since releasing her first single last year.

Rose hasreleased her debut mixtape, ‘dancing, drinking, talking, thinking’, last January 2021.

Introducing…Hydrogen Sea

Hydrogen Sea carry songs back from forgotten dreams. The intimate creative chemistry of lovers.

Birsen Ucar whispers cryptic poetry softly into the ear, carried on a translucent ray of electronica invoked by PJ Seaux. Faint echoes and ripples of Massive Attack, Beach House and Little Dragon in the distance. This, though, is Hydrogen SeaAutomata is their last album.


9Bach have been commissioned to create a genre-defying piece that will explore miscommunication and misinformation in a bilingual, multimedia age. The piece will be a collaboration between the band and acclaimed drummer Andy Gangadeen (Massive Attack, Jeff Beck, amongst others) who will add an electronic slant to the band’s distinctive sound. The composition will contain words sung in the Welsh language by Lisa Jên, with actor Maxine Peake voicing a spoken word piece in English, which will be an interpretation or feel of the Welsh lyric’s meaning.

El Dia Europeu de la Música

El Fnac s’uneix al Dia Europeu de la Música amb la celebració d’una gran tarda musical a la Plaça de les Glòries gratuïta i oberta a tothom. Un triple cartell encapçalat pel directe dels escocesos Young Fathers (22 h), trio de diferents procedències a qui s’ha comparat amb Massive Attack per la seva capacitat de conjurar un so propi i multicultural i on se senten arrels africanes, hip-hop alternatiu i electrònica amb sensibilitat pop. Abans veurem als londinencs Ibibio Sound Machine (20.30 h) i la seva explosió de ritme i color que uneix la música africana i electrònica amb el funk, el disc i el post-punk i l’electro; i al duo format per Rosalía i Raül Refree (19.30 h), que presentaran ‘Los Angeles’ (2017), un dels discos de l’any, en el qual ofereixen una proposta que barreja la tradició flamenca amb l’experimentació.
