New Album ‘Friends & Lovers‘
European Tour Begins Next Month
“They rule. Fact..take a moment to fully appreciate the sound of Las Kellies!“The Beat
“The new record demonstrates new growth in terms of lyrics and production, but the band’s values and chemistry still recall early days.” She Shreds
Rupturing with dance floor classics like ‘Sugar Beat’ and ‘I Don’t Care’, they effortlessly move into sun-soaked psych-pop tunes (‘Summer Breeze’, ‘Sun Goes Down’) with slow grooving honeyed tones, shimmering guitars and propulsive percussion.
Produced by Iván Diaz Mathé (credits include Lee “Scratch” Perry & Mad Professor), who’s worked on their previous records, the latest album was recorded in Demolition Sounds Studios.
Las Kellies formed in Buenos Aires back in 2005, they debuted with ‘Shaking Dog!’ (2007) and concentrated on ensuring their prominence on their home turf first. They independently released second album ‘Kalimera’ (2009) that took inspiration from Devo and ESG – at this time the group ventured on their first international tour. Soon after they joined Fire Records releasing ‘Las Kellies’, a 7” split of ‘Erase You’ featuring both ESG and Las Kellies versions dropped with their last full length ‘Total Exposure’ following in 2013 and EP ‘Dubby Exposure’ (Crang/Rastrillo Records) a year later.
On ‘Friends & Lovers’ Las Kellies are Silvina Kelly and Cecilia Kelly. They will joined by their newest member and bassist, Manuela Ducatenzeiler, who tours with them across Europe in winter 2016.
