DESVELO probably shouldn’t exist.
David Gracia moved to New York a year ago fresh of the success of his work under the name Fur Voice, which earned him spots playing at electronic/indie festivals like Barcelona’s Sónar, Bam and Primavera Sound. He moved into a basement apartment in Brooklyn where he met Ian Stewart, who was practicing Spanish in his free time, when he wasn’t gigging around the city with his deliciously fuzzy, local favorite garage band, Dirty Blondes. They started recording pulpy, gothic pop songs, with David steering the direction of distorted riffs, and lyrics about love, loss, the end of times, and change. It was supposed to be funny, but people liked it and wanted to see it live. Renan McFarland, from the shoegaze power group Ringo Deathstarr, was recruited to play guitar, also Lisa Lombardi as a bass player and the drummer Alex Weaver.
