Pandan-Lagl is Cristina Arroyo and JC Peña, also known as El relevo alemán since a decade now. They catch up for the first time in Madrid when both played in them previous band Estoikov. The duo, who’s name comes from a Franquin comic, makes noisy songs with old drum machines, dark humour lyricism and obscure historical references.
With a self-titled debut album released in 2017, followed by the EP ‘Tréveris’ in 2022, Pandan-Lagl releases now their second studio work entitled ‘Teatro del absurdo’. More articulate, varied, and ambitious than its predecessor, ‘Teatro del absurdo’ has been recorded, mixed, and mastered with Javier Ortiz at Estudios Brazil.
All, on the edge of a rope which connects two cardinal points, so spaced but so complementary as Cristina and JC are. Indissoluble faces from the same coin, a rewarding currency that looks like made in purpose just to play out of course.. Is this kraut-pop? Who knows.
