The recent and distinctive activity of the Mallorca punk scene with the likes of Orden Mundial, Pou, and Pena Máxima is getting to the point of warranting a name, that of nuevo sonido balear. Well, the sonido balear is getting a new practitioner in Barrera, whose debut is said to be “filled to the rim with lust, sex, power and distortion. Their songs are slow and acid, with a tortured tone that would make Gloom or Brainbombs cry.” Moreover, one should be able to trace a musical path as “laid by Stickmen With Rayguns or Flipper,” but “firmly rooted in Spanish punk with Desechables as a clear point of reference, both aesthetically and sonically.” Two first examples can be garnered below by way of «Como Tu Ninguno» and «Visiones Nocturnas».
«Visiones Nocturnas» is set for release on December 10 by La Vida Es Un Mus on digital and vinyl formats whose pre-orders can be found here.
