Of all European countries, none embraced powerpop and rock-‘n’-roll music more than Spain. And Spain’s not just a fertile touring ground for foreign bands, they have many bands that stand their own in terms of catchy guitar driven music with a healthy dose of punk and rock-‘n’-roll attitude. Take Enamorados from Barcelona. Their new 8 song mini-album Baila mi Ritmo (‘Dance to my beat’) is full of bubblegum pop punk that aims straight for your heart. It’s the follow up to their self-titled debut. That one was released 5 years ago, has only 7 songs, but is much fun and you should be able to snatch it on Discogs for a budget-friendly price. With 5 years between two releases, Enomarados aren’t the most prolific band. Perhaps they understand the allure of scarcity and delayed rewards – the band’s tagline reads ‘the favorite band of your ex-girlfriend.’ Anyhow, when they do record music, it’s right on the money. Songs like En Mi Corazón, Te Pedí Vernos are instant hits. Out now on Hotel Records.
