The Free Fall Band

The Münster Sights

    The Free Fall Band are five very young timeless pop creators bursting with melody and sublime choruses, hailing from Mataró, a village north Barcelona.

    ‘Elephants Never Forget’ was the band’s debut album, produced by Miqui Puig and released on LAV Records. The record sums up The Free Fall Band perfectly: echoes of The Beatles, Jonathan Richman, The Shins, The Zombies… fun and emotion in equal measure, carefully assembled arrangements and a youthful image.

    2013 put them at the forefront of Spanish pop, thanks to landmark moments such as their performance at the Primavera Sound Festival and supporting Rodriguez in Barcelona. They also released their first step on El Segell del Primavera, an EP with covers of The Strokes, Violent Femmes, New Order, Booker T. & The MGs and Jonathan Richman.

    And now their second album arrives. It’s called ‘The Münster Sights’ and shows the band in another level: the songs reflect a band that have been playing and growing as musicians. The album was produced by Darren Hayman (he used to play in Hefner and has a long and amazing solo career) and engineered by Giles Barrett (from London popsters Tigercats), a perfect choice for The Free Fall Band as they’ve long been fans of both musicians. As a result ‘The Münster Sights’ sounds richer and fatter than their previous efforts and contains such great numbers as ‘Fontana’ and ‘I Want To Know’.

    Joana Serrat

    Dear Great Canyon

      Joana Serrat is a singer and composer from Vic (Barcelona) who, from an early age, has been attracted to folk music and rock with American roots. This was largely due to the vast family record collection with which she grew up, from Roy Orbison to Neil Young, and from him to Bruce Springsteen, passing through Xesco Boix, Grup de Folk, Woody Guthrie and Bob Dylan. Dylan became a important artistic reference for quite some time.

      While achieving all of this Joana Serrat was already creating her next record. In January 2013 she sent a demo to three prestigious international producers. Two of them replied immediately that they wanted to collaborate with Joana. She chose Howard Bilerman, Canadian producer and musician, owner of the mythical hotel2tango studios, nominated for a Grammy for his production work with Arcade Fire (‘Funeral’), Godspeed You! Black Emperor (winners of the Polaris Music Prize 2013, the equivalent to the UK Mercury Prize, awarded to the best Canadian album every year), Vic Chesnutt and Wolf Parade, amongst many others.
