The Zephyr Bones
La Castanya - 24 July
The Zephyr Bones are a new surfer-psych-pop band based in Barcelona but inspired by US influences such DIIV, The Drums, Wild Nothing, Real Estate, Beach Fossils or even Beach House. They released their Wishes/Fishes EP digitally themselves almost a year ago in July 2014, but now the EP will be released on cassette via Spanish label La Castanya on 24 July.
Having moved from Chile to Spain to start a band the four-piece of Brian, Jossip, Toni and Nico have their own studio in Barcelona called Big Beat Big Waves. The album is full of summery beach vibes and the sea is a huge inspiration to them, drawing on the never-ending sunsets, all roads leading to the water. They use skeletal rhythms, sparse instrumentation and shimmering synthesizers to create crystalline noise and delightfully danceable melodies.
