Spanish twee pop outfit Marlovers cite Teenage Fanclub, Fountains of Wayne, Belle and Sebastian, The New Pornographers and Alvvays as their examples – excellent influences – nevertheless they still have a sound of their own. The band has been active since 2005, but their new full-length album Antartica is their freshest sounding output to date. Although the album title suggests otherwise, you’ll hear twelve sympathetic jangle pop songs with summery melodies and bright vocals.
Antartica is out now digitally and on CD via RockCD Records. The band consists of Marina Mullor (vocals), Simó Reus (guitar), Guillermo Bauza (bass, keys, electric drums, some guitar) and Carlos Gonzalez (drums), the new LP also features Alberto Santolaria (vocals, guitar).
