Los Coronas -Surf Music, Spanish Style
Independently seeping into the ears of R'n'R lovers, morriconian 50s and 60s instrumental fans, tarantiniac filmmakers and tastemakers, Los Coronas have forged a name for themselves with their distinctive blend of surf-tinged atmospheric twang and their own Spanish musical heritage.
Los Coronas are widely recognized as Spain's best instrumental surf band. Their sound is a mix of Spanish melodies, raw R'n'R intensity and their own vision of the 60s Californian surf sound, blended with a heavy dose of Spaghetti Western echoes.
Formed in Madrid in 1991, they have since released four albums, two compilations, and toured Spain, Europe, USA and Mexico several times. Spanish "pasodoble" and "rumba" are mixed with frenetic descents full of intensity and r'n'r power, reactivating the musical exchange of Spanish and American influences.
Bikini Beach Band
Bikini Beach Band is a surf inspired band of instrumentals with 50s and 60s inspiration but also playing covers of modern chart hits like Blur's Boys & Girls or Oasis' Some Might Say.
