With just two demos, “La Mecedora” and “Ultramar”, this Asturian duo formed by Nel and Helena deeply impressed us. Their punk-pop sound is so spontaneous, so immediate and urgent that we needed their first official release to be part of the collection of new promises that our New Adventures in Pop is. The electricity of MY BLOODY VALENTINE, RIDE and THE JESUS & MARY CHAIN, the primitivism of BEAT HAPPENING, the instant shake-you-up of SHOP ASSISTANTS, THE VASELINES and THE PASTELS, reaching a perfect symphony between noise and melody.

“Ultramarinos” seems to be directly extracted from “Psychocandy”, where their dreamy lyrics and layers of sound clash brilliantly with the brazen chorus and the guitar solo that is in and of itself an ode to indie-pop. “Ultramar, no te olvides protección solar” (Ultramar, don’t forget your sunscreen). Simply fantastic. “Temporal” is a song with echoes of MARINE GIRLS mixed with distortions, fuzzes and boosters. “Es Mejor” is another brazen A-side, with disconcerting lyrics because of the cultural analysis and irony it’s seeped with, but that returns to a base that is almost martial, influenced by their love of Krautrock, with serves as a support for the layers of feedback and melodies that stick together like gum to the sole of your shoe. “Nueva Ola” closes the marine theme with a freshness that we haven’t heard since TALULAH GOSH and THE SEA URCHINS, with those faded guitars over the insistent drums, and a melody that simultaneously affects your mood and your feet.

Four songs recorded in the Kaiju studios in Vigo, owned by Eva and Iván of LINDA GUILALA, undoubtedly the ideal duo to make the final touches on LOS BONSAIS’ songs, since nobody can understand better than they can the immediacy of their electric and addictive sound, and all of this wrapped up with the mastering of Bill Racine in Los Angeles.

All of this in the most brilliant and concise way possible. None of the songs on the album reach the 3 minute mark. And they don’t have to. Indie-pop in its purest essence. There is no need for additives, or preservatives, or artificial coloring. Simply attitude, good melodies, simple, straight-forward lyrics (that show the world around us for what it is: The sea, the earth, the summer, the rain, travelling…) and all the excitement in the world to show it. This is the perfect presentation for LOS BONSAIS.

Track Name: Ultramarinos
Coge las llaves nos vamos al puerto
Abre los ojos hay que estar atento
Mira la ruta que te indica el mapa
Sigue a ese barco que si no se escapa

No te olvides protección solar
Ven aquí
¡Todo lo que puedes conseguir!

Arría las velas que el viento no para
Piensa un destino y se incluye en la escala
Busca un tesoro con piedras preciosas
Rumbo nordeste y olvida tus cosas

No te olvides protección solar
Ven aquí
¡Todo lo que puedes conseguir!

El timón
Nos asiste con la dirección
Libre y con plumaje especial

No te olvides protección solar
Ven aquí
¡Todo lo que puedes conseguir!
Track Name: Temporal
Y pensé que daría igual
Te miré, me recuperé

Dime que sería mejor
Nubes, nieve, lluvia o sol

Apliqué una táctica especial
Te sentó francamente mal

No sé qué robarás por mí
No creo que me pueda ir

Un sin fin, espacial
Un pixín, oriental

Ahora ves quién tenía razón
Siempre yo, claro, como no

Si no puedes contestar
No te hagas de rogar

Un sin fin, espacial
Un pixín, oriental

Un sin fin, espacial
Lo real, no es verdad
Track Name: Es Mejor
Es mejor que no
Vengas a comer
Se acabó el arroz
No queda café

Pasa luego por favor
Ni siquiera tengo voz

Es mejor así
Prefiero leer
No quiero salir
Me quedo a dormir

Me distrae el sol
Veo todo azul
Dulce sensación
La luz y el calor

Miro al cielo y un avión
Vuela bajo y sin control

Tengo que escribir
Me van a llamar
No se que decir
¿Qué puedo inventar?

Les comentaré
Que todo va mal
Se me ha roto un pie
No puedo pensar

Pasa luego por favor
Ni siquiera tengo voz

Pasa luego por favor
Ni siquiera tengo voz
Track Name: Nueva Ola
Esta es la casa nueva
Que voy a alquilar
Tiene vistas a un paisaje

Guarda la bici en el garaje
Que se va a mojar

Ahora llega el verano
Me voy a escapar
Voy con una maleta
Que es monumental

Me olvido del invierno
No quiero pensar
