Spanish Indiepop from El Palacio de Linares
El Palacio de Linares already have me in their corner, but I’m diving full in on the band’s forthcoming effort, Largos Agotadores. Once their latest single starts, there’s a quick verse before we’re thrust forward in these upbeat twanging guitar lines and precision percussion. As the song moves, I’m repeatedly charmed by the band’s combination of male/female vocals; it completely captures that emotional appeal that so often makes music timeless in its presentation. And, just because they like to toy with your emotions, the band pull back momentarily to work the vocal atop a lightly strummed guitar, just before bounding off happily. The group’s new effort will drop on January 31st via Pretty Olivia Records.
