Sónar by Day
Sweaty, psychedelic electro-punk
It's been five years since VVV [Trippin'you] won a demo contest and released their first album on vinyl. Between 'Lennui' and 'Turboviolencia', their latest record, released at the end of 2021, a lot has happened. A second album ‘Escama’, a collaborative EP with neo new-waver Luz Futuro, a handful of singles… even a documentary about the band. In total, five years in which the “neo-bakala” trio from Madrid have paid homage to the legacy of ‘bacalao’, the potent, trashy and glamorous mix of punk, synth-pop and proto-techno that made Valencia and the ‘Ruta Destroy’ the pulsing heart of Spanish underground nightlife in the 1980s. Their reverence for this forgotten (at least outside of Spain) moment of musical history is revolutionary, as is their sweaty, psychedelic electro-punk. This is the sound of club parking lots, and the moments where dancefloors dissolve into mosh-pits. Perfect for letting your hair down at Sónar 2022.
