One of the most inventive bans from Spain (…) MONDOSONORO Marcos Gendre
In discontinuous hibernation since 2011, Parmesano left their lethargy on 2018 for the anniversary of Ojalá estë mi bici and, after a brief tour of France, they released their first physical disc in their career. ‘Vida extra’, a new EP including six new songs was published alongside the mythical ‘Parmesano! EP’ of 2011.
Over the years and probably unconsciously, Juanjo (Avecrem, Indiosingracia, Wapísimo), Jordi (El gos binari), Edu (Circonite, Muzak, Wapísimo), and Àlex (Familea Miranda, Lasers) have lowered the tension inherent in the first EP, to transmit a spontaneity and a freshness that, at times, leads us to exaggerate, to doubt if what we are listening to is actually pop? Not at all. This where the magic lies.
Singing in unison as a sort of redemption and a fundamental part in the own internal dramaturgy of the band, as well as the running joke… the Catalan combo —one of the most fascinating and erratic of the last decade—has landed its rock proposal to setback, syncopated and tropical, to make it even more playful and danceable!
