BARCELONA · 21-23 OCTOBER

PRIMAVERA CLUB IS COMING BACK TO BARCELONA

From the 31st October to the 2nd November, the festival Primavera Club will offer you the opportunity to discover a large number of artists from the international as well as from the local scene live, all of whom represent what Primavera Sound’s organisers are betting on for the near future. A total of 44 bands that, during the weekend, will perform in 5 different venues, all in the centre of Barcelona: Apolo, La [2] de Apolo, Teatre Principal, El Teatro Latino and Sidecar.

The line-up has been tailor made for a curious and demanding public, that will have the opportunity to check out what is going on in the music scene thanks to a large number of proposals from countries such as England, the USA, Australia and Finland, who will come to the Catalan capital for the first time for Primavera Club 2014. All the artists have been carefully selected by the same people that make up the Primavera Sound line-up and many of them will no doubt become very popular during 2015 and will probably perform at all of next year’s festivals. 

The new voice of soul and most electronic of pop are superbly represented by the new British sensation JUNGLE, the Australians Movement, CARLA from Vic, the extremely young Ben Khan and the exquisite Woman’s Hour. On the more experimental front of electronic music we find projects such as Eaux that rose out of the ashes of Sian Alice Group, Tobacco from the Ghostly International label and the synthetic symphonies from the British East India Youth.

The most guitarry part of the nineties is back with a vengeance lately as can be seen with bands such as Fighter Pillow, Tweens (support band of The Breeders on their recent tour), Cómo Vivir En El Campo from Madrid, noise pop from the Barcelona duo Cenetaph, noise rock from the Canadians White Lung, Jennifer Herrema’s (Royal Trux) new project Black Bananas and the powerful Tony Molina, architect of the best lo fi pop. The most melodious indie pop will be present with promising bands such as the Canadians Alvvays, authors of one of the albums of the summer, the Barcelona band Halcón, with members of Veracruz, Me and the Bees, Nisei and other bands from Barcelona, from the label Fortuna Pop the British band Fear Of Men, shoegaze from the Londoners Younghusband, the Mancunians Horsebeach and We Are Catchers, British Peter Jackson’s project.

The most intense and powerful side of the line-up includes everything from raw sludge by Rebuig, mad punk from Cerebral Ballzy, passing through the metal meets shoegaze by the Americans Nothing, hardcore with hints of noise-rock by the Canadians Greys, the Americans Perfect Pussy, led by the explosive Meredith Graves and with an unmissable live show and the forceful post-punk quartet Ought on the Constellation label renown for their explosive performances. In the garage, psychedelia revisited and American rock area there will be folk rock from Strand of Oaks, Fever the Ghost will perform their magical psych-pop, The Saurs with their adrenaline-charged compositions, the London quartet Childhood, Muñeco from Barcelona, the all-girl band The Coathangers from Atlanta, the ex-violator Steve Gunn with his new band De Stervende Honden and one of the new discoveries of the Famèlic label Opatov from the Vallés.

There will also be a good number of artists who are not easy to classify, who range from PacoSan’s galactic experimentation to the danceable and spatial pop by the Finnish artist Jaakko Eino Kalevi, to the intricate sounds that move between folk, pop and electronic music from the Barcelona band Tirana to the explosive mixture of electronic and psychedelia from the duo Der Panther. The eclecticism of Cherry from Murcia (with a record on the Foehn label), dark rock from the Danish band Lower, maths rock by IEPI, the agile post-punk from Ed Schrader’s Music Beat and cosmic kraut pop from the Madrid band Karen Koltrane will also be part of the heterogeneous line-up of this new edition of Primavera Club.
