Saturday, April 29 – MADRID Teatro Barceló
The French band led by Patou and Jean-Philippe returns to Madrid on April 29 to present their next album “Angels and Demons”. The album will be published later this month. Mixing high tech visual effects and powerful songs, they manage very well to convey new sensations among the audience. As if “seeing and feeling the sounds” was natural, access to « rinôçérôse » music seems innate. The other particularity of the band is that they welcome and always have different singers in their albums. The performances of the vocalists are reinforced by the talent of the duo when it comes to composing music. That’s why prestigious names always appear on their albums.

Bearoid’s new single, “At Your Funeral,” is a R&B track with a broken rhythm and a powerful chorus made of titanic brasses, melancholic vocals and lyrics that tell a true story. Bearoid is the electronic pop project of Dani Belenguer, singer and producer from Valencia but based in Barcelona. A project originated with the vision of bringing club music to home speakers, as well as filling the dance floors, festivals and concert halls with color and energy. It is an intimate travel, where the personal life of the composer is frankly reflected in each of the songs: fears, dreams, moods, real stories or invented with a real basis.
Saturday, April 22 MADRID Sala El Sol
Pajaro Sunrise has finished his winter tour with a pair of historic Sold Outs in Murcia and Madrid, but in spring he will return to tour, this time with his band. They have several dates. In April he will be in Donosti, Zaragoza, Madrid and Barcelona. His new album, “The Collapse” (Lovemonk) is a work of pop full of contrasts, with rather cheerful melodies and melancholic lyrics, but with humor – as it should. In addition the title proved somewhat prophetic: after recording the disc, and back in Madrid, the world of Yuri really collapsed. But that’s another story. Beyond Pajaro Sunrise, Yuri Mendez’s songs have been featured in movie soundtracks, television series and commercials such as The Big C, Castle, El Lince Perdido, Vodafone and McDonald’s.
Friday, April 21 MADRID – Café Berlín (SON Estrella Galicia)
“Ifwe have to put labels, we would say that they practice a power pop similar to Teenage Fanclub, Nada Surf, Redd Kross… but that also approaches to Los Planetas, to Lori Meyers, to Lagartija Nick, to Niños Mutantes, always maintaining a guitar base that perhaps distances them from that standardized pop sound.” (Bandalismo) After the tour of the first album presentation and the passage of the band by festivals such as Portamérica, Gijón Sound, Let’s Festival, Contempopránea (as a revelation group), Oba Festival or Noroeste, Sensacional has already published its new work: “Desde el limbo”. This second album is a step further in terms of sound, color and nuances. Ten tracks in which he has pampered every little detail, embodying the best of Sensacional in each one of them.
