I like to recommend this band to you. Their name is Shh and the members are Diana Huarte and Daniel Gorostegui. They are from Argentina though they are also based in London.
Their electronic pop is unique but instead of trying to describe them in a clumsy way I rather use a paragraph that I found on the Internet and reflects the spirit of this band perfectly!
“SHH is electronic pop-Buenos Aires style. Hailing originally from party city Buenos Aires, SHH creates stylish, intelligent electronic pop that’s cramed with big tunes and rampages through everything from Italo to indie, house to punk, all delivered by vocalist Di, a blond bombshell collision between Grace Jones, Lady Gaga and Iggy Pop”
They have released 2 records already with a small record label from Argentina: Oui Oui records. They are starting a small tour in London and Spain to promote the second album: “Gaucho Boy”, so if you are interested in new sounds and you are around, go and watch them playing live, you’ll enjoy the party.
Here are the dates of their tour:
February 3rd Water Monto Rats, London.
February 5th Bar Uxoa, Hondarribia.
February 6th Club Nicolette, Pamplona.
February 8th Radio 3, Madrid.
February 9th Club Costello, Madrid.
February 13th Festival of Sins, London.
In the verge of a stress fracture I had to call to my 911 help here in Sweden!
You know I was overwhelmed with work… preparing the show, learning a lot in a very short time (you know new programs, virtual instruments, etc) and with a lot of great projects ahead… it was too much! So I did what I have to do and I called Povel Ohlsson, the other of the producers of Little Devil and I asked for some help… He is a really reaaaaaaally busy guy and this time is the worst for him because he is traveling a lot, but he managed to get some free time for me!!!
That was a huge weight removed from my back, to be honest. I was feeling the pressure in a way that was hard for me to actually enjoy my work! And I love what I do… but sometimes it can be a mess.
But no more worries, he’ll help me out so I can also focus on the rest of the things that need to be done and I have the time to share them here with you!
And by the way, the cover is coooooming!!! yeaaaaaaah!
Remember how Bill Murray was completely upside down with the time and the language in “Lost in Translation”? That’s how I feel with the programming in my Mac!
My absence from the blog is because I have been preparing a different live set, instead of the full band format I used before. Now men (woman, actually) and machine will melt together to give an exciting musical experience… actually my brain is melting literally meanwhile I am preparing the set because it’s so muuuuch and hard work! LOL
Programs, plugins, interface, bmp, MIDI, headset, VTS and many more! Names that before they were just sounds in the producers mouths now they are my only focus of attention!
Thank God I’m not alone and my friend and one of the producers of the record, Fernando Montemurro is giving me remote support! But I might need more help… so start praying
That’s all for now. I promise I will write about the progress of this and I will keep you posted about the rest of my work.
Got the band ready (the Natubellos! hehehe), great musicians and really nice people! Only problem? Suuuper busy!
I am a freak control, so this stresses me out as apparently we will be rehearsing 2 days before the show.. ayayayayayayayaaaaay! I better go zen and start relaxing, otherwise I will not only fix anything but need a white cushion room! hehehe
