Disco las Palmeras!

Never so few made so much! This sentence suits perfectly to a band wich is able, with only two guitars and drums, to create music environments hard to hear from a three men band. This is due to a modified guitar with a bass string attached to it and also to a complicated framework based on amplifiers and effect pedals., wich makes the audience feel as if there were many more musicians than the three they are actually watching.

Halfway between shoegaze, spacerock, noise and punk, they have influences as The Jesus and Mary chain, Spacemen 3 or My bloody Valentine, but with a sound treatment purely contemporary. Their sharped guitars accompanied by original and blunt drums, far away from the standards. Poetically apocaliptics and also critics, they form a perfect soundtrack for nowadays.

The recording of “Nihil Obstat”, produced by the promising producer Iago Lorenzo and masterized by Alan Douches (Animal Collective, The Liars, Galaxie 500…) at the West Side Studios in New York, has been a real sound lab, using up to 8 amplifiers, 10 guitars and more than 50 effect pedals in a long process that has driven them through three different studios during several months.

Their secod álbum "Ultra" is being the confirmation of one of the most amazing bands today in Spain, as many Spanish media entitles in a lot of reviews.

In their beginings, Disco Las Palmeras! Has proved to be high over the average and hadn´t been unnoticed, the spanish music magazine Mondosonoro has priced them with the second best demo of the year or also I like Magazine and the fanzine Que Grata Sorpresa spoke about one of the bands to care about.

The have been invited to many spanish festivals including Primavera Sound (2010 and 2011), Día de la música 2011, Sonorama 2011, Microsonidos 2012, Portamérica 2012, Let's Festival 2012, Portamérica 2012, Monkey week 2012, BAM 2013...

Their Life shows are pure strength. Always fast, guts and paranoid, they play hard volume not suitable for every ear, getting the punk and refined to shake hands.
