Divus Julius presents: Nick Murphy

It’s not an easy feat to win over music critics and audiences with the first songs you release to the public. Just ask the Australian musician who, after being first known as Chet Faker in 2014 decided to kill that alter ego two years later to come back and present his music under his real name, Nick Murphy. He comes today to Barcelona to present his acclaimed 2019 album ‘Run Fast Sleep Naked’ live. Tonight at Sala Apolo.

Favourite Gig: Balthazar

Balthazar was one of the great discoveries of VIDA 2016. An elegant, warm and bright pop, signed by the tandem between Maarten Devoldere and Jinte Pérez, who captivated both the public and the specialized press. After four years of silence and enjoying at the last two editions of VIDA of their parallel projects -Warhaus and J. Bernardt-, Balthazar announces their long-awaited return with “Fever” (Play It Again Sam, 2019). A fourth studio album that will be released on January 25 and we can already enjoy the first single by the same name. Tonight at La 2 de sala Apolo.

Favourite Gig: Cloud Nothings

Cloud Nothings was founded in a Cleveland basement, the one-man recording project of Dylan Baldi. Prolific from the startBaldi’s early work was rough but immediate: crudely recorded, spring-loaded spasms of Buzzcocks-informed pop that quickly found an online following among the lo-fi-inclined. 

Cloud Nothings have announced a new album, Last Building Burning, their first since 2017’s Life Without Sound, and released its first single, “The Echo of the World.” The thrashing, noisy new song is a jolt, getting listeners amped for the forthcoming project. Tonight in concert at La2 de l’Apolo.

Music by Bergman: Snow Patrol

The band of Northern Irish musicians formed in Scotland are much more than the composers of ‘Chasing Cars’, which was such a huge hit years ago, thanks in part to the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ soundtrack. The five-piece band are back in Barcelona, where they’ve always received a warm welcome, to present the best of ‘Wildness’ (2018) and so much more. Tonight at Razzmatazz.

Favourite Gig: Mishima

One of the most popular Catalan bands in recent years, straight outta Barcelona, with charismatic frontman David Carabén, it’s Mishima with their modern classic Christmastime concert, tonight at Apolo, celebrating the venue’s 75th anniversary. The band – Carabén (vocals and guitar), Marc Lloret (keyboards), Dani Vega (guitar), Xavi Caparrós (bass) and Alfons Serra (drums) – present their eighth album, ‘Ara i res’ (2017).

The muses of La Musa: Hilary Woods

Nightfall. It doesn’t matter if you are in the darkness of your room, or in a clearing in the forest. It doesn’t matter because there is something in common between the intimacy of four walls in the quiet of the night and the tense calm of nature at peace. Hilary Woods’s first album is perfect for both moments. Colt softly asks to accompany you, be it in a walk in the dark or in the cosy atmosphere of an intimate room. You can sense that it is a record made in intimacy, darkness and delicacy (in fact, it was recorded in an abandoned flat). It sounds like Grouper combined with the atmosphere of Twin Peaks. Piano, synthesisers, field noises, celestial voices, a few harp and drone arrangements and frozen beats: immediately spellbound. Tonight at Sala Apolo.
