Local Bands: El Último Vecino

The project led by Gerard Alegre Dòria was one of the great revelations of 2013, the year in which the Barcelona band surprised with a debut of vibrant, dark techno-pop bursting with hints of bands such as Décima Víctima and La Mode, and also of The Smiths, Orange Juice and even of El Último de la Fila. Now, after playing on stages of Spain, Lithuania and Mexico and proving with the maxi single “Tu casa nueva” that they are not a one-record band, they are back with a new record that they have been working on recently. It is a good moment for dark anthems while defending the Joy Division-New Order sequence. The will be playing at Primavera Sound.

Pardals: El Último Vecino

Divus Julius Bonasera ha triat com a “pardals” d’aquesta setmana a El Último Vecino que acaben de publicar el seu segon disc “Voces” i que seran a la sala Apolo per celebrar el 5è aniversari de Canadà compartint cartell amb Evripidis & His Tragedies i Extraperlo,

El projecte comandat per Gerard Alegre Dòria va ser una de les grans revelacions del 2013, any en el qual la banda barcelonina va sorprendre amb un debut de techno-pop fosc i vibrant ple de referències a bandes com Décima Víctima i La Mode, sí, però també a The Smiths, Orange Juice i inclús a El Último de la Fila, però sobretot The Drums- Ara, després de passejar per escenaris espanyols, lituans o mexicans i després de demostrar amb el maxi-single “Tu casa nueva” que no són flor d’un dia, els barcelonins tornen amb un nou treball al qual han estat donant forma durant els últims temps. Bons temps per als himnes foscos i per reivindicar la seqüència Joy Division-New Order.
