After our work with Toundra and Fira Fem last year we’re pleased to announce that our third campaign with Barcelona’s finest record label Aloud Music Ltd will be with their latest signing Santa Rita on the promotion of their debut album High On The Seas. Having been together now for close on five years the band have journeyed from being one of Barcelona’s best kept secrets to one of the city’s must see bands and anyone familiar with groups like Sleater-Kinney, Babes In Toyland and Seagull Screaming Kiss Her Kiss Her will do well to check out their first EP here. The album, which has already been released in Spain will be released in the UK on 3 June 2013. As always, more news to follow soon but for now you can check out this promo video of Ceci, Natalia, Laura and Martha in the studio…
2012 was a great first year for Sheltered Life PR and one that saw us helping some truly impressive new acts get their feet, fists and heavily made-up’d faces through many doors. In fact when we initially came up with the idea of forming SLPR the only thing we really knew was that the one band we wanted to help was Cardiff’s very own “Heavy Rock Spectacular” The Witches Drum. So this month – with a mother’s pride and a father’s appreciation for forgotten psychedelic records – we are pleased to say that we helped the band get their song ‘Climb Aboard The Bus Of Devotion’ on the brand new Metal Hammer covermount compilation, Satanic Doomadalica Vol. 1. Well deserved and long overdue, we couldn’t be happier for the guys.
After a storming 2012 Toundra look set to build upon the acclaim they gathered for their album (III) with two festival appearances one of which includes a return to Primavera Sound this May. Fans of Spain’s finest instrumental post-rock group will be able to catch the band on Thursday 23 June in what promises to be an unforgettable week. As well featuring on the Primavera line-up the band also play FIB Benicàssim Festival taking place from 18-21 July and of course, Aloud Music Ltd’s inaugural Aloud Music Festival 2013 this February (more info here).
