Singing in Spanish, English, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Catalan and French, Las Kellies spent several years ensuring their prominence on the Argentinian music scene. With their first record, ‘Shaking Dog!’ (2007), they created an irresistible blend of raw, spicy rock that owes as much to old rock and roll as it does the Raincoats, which turned out to be a veritable birthday party of a record.
In 2009 their second independent record, ‘Kalimera’, was released. That same year Las Kellies took the new, tighter songs on their first international tour, rocking the Old World, unleashing their infectious energy onto Europe with their garage rhythms, teasing impertinence and all-out fun live shows that incorporate the dress sense of Devo and the bounciness of ESG. Las Kellies are: Ceci Kelly; guitar and vocals, Sil Kelly; drums and vocals and Manuela Ducatenzeile; bass.
“They boast what is clearly an encyclopaedic understanding of all the best bits of new wave both sides of the atlantic, plus the fortitude to throw the rulebook clean out the window and sometimes sound just like themselves.”NME
