Spanish Prisoners - Brooklyn band with a taste for LA

Spanish Prisoners - Brooklyn band with a taste for LA

Fans of Destroyer now have a songwriter from NYC to call their own. Singing of the sticky situations that lead singer Leo Maymind finds himself in, the record 'Gold Fools' is a hypnagogic journey of competing influences, one half vintage synth wilderness, one half driving rock riffs. For their debut record, Spanish Prisoners ratchets their response to these influences up with the torrid journey of 'Rich Blood,' and personal favorite 'Los Angeles Guitar Dream.' This band's washy vibe will leave its 'tremolo-haze symphonies' (their words...) on that vulnerable sweet spot of yours found right between the headphones. See them when they get back from tour to play Cameo Gallery April 1st.
