Wild Balbina - Eat Tacos

(ELE310: 8428846403106)

Numbered limited edition of 500. Blue vinyl with download.

WILD BABINA begin to take shape in Vigo with Antía Figueiras and Marta González, who, after going through the conservatory together and forming a friendship, decided to begin writing songs in their house while putting Wim Wenders and Marisol movies on in the background. The project never took off because they needed a drummer. Until Guille V. Zapata (who they new because he played in the group MUNICH) signed up to give them a hand and give some shape to their songs. These songs have the urgent pop-punk of THE SHOP ASSISTANTS, MABO TAXI and HELEN LOVE, and they were finally recorded in a session this past April in the Manu Sanz studios (FANTASMAGE, INDOMITOS…).
“Eat Tacos”, the opening track of this 7” limited edition single that serves as their debut, is good proof of the Galician trio’s sound: irreverent lyrics and speedy guitars that move between the force of TIGER TRAP, BLACK TAMBOURINE and TALULAH GOSH, and the Riot Grrrl spirit of BIKINI KILL and BRATMOBILE. “So Kind”, adds a spaghetti western touch to those reverberating choruses that fit WILD BABINA’s unbridled songs fantastically. “Spit Your Love” has a beyond-perfect chorus, crunchy but ascending from pop, as if THE BEATLES had decided not to leave their garage and had put an unbridled Yoko Ono as the front woman. But to close, “Surfin’” stands out from the other songs by accentuating the sixtie’s spirit, like THE SCHOOL without the arrangements reviewed by David Lynch and his disturbing dreaminess. 
In addition to this, WILD BABINA also has a feminist and cultural fanzine that Marta and Antía put out: Typical Girls.
