The family // Ferran Palau
After releasing his debut album 'L’aigua del rierol' and being on many of the 'Best of the Year' lists, including the renowned magazine Rockdelux, Ferran Palau, more known as the leader of Anímic, is back with his second solo album, 'Santa Ferida'.
The album, created and recorded over the past two years with Jordi Matas (Seward) and with the last touch of the legendary AKG Spring Reverb, courtesy of Joan Pons (El Petit de Cal Eril), has been restarted and rerecorded up to three times until accomplishing that magic that is never missing in this prolific and exquisite artists work. Even though Palau doesn't drift to far from the themes he is usually inspired by, like death, religion and blame, this album boosts a lighter feeling to it, where a summery atmosphere and aesthetic stands out, where the need to listen to the songs under the warmth of the sun and with the sea breeze touching your skin is almost an obligation.
Ferran Palau fights to make himself understood through new and fresh melodies, without forgetting to take us to those mysterious whereabouts he has us accustomed to.
An album full of hits like the catchy "La daga" or the already classic "El meu lament", with echoes of bands like Talk Talk or Timber Timbre or solo artists like Cass McCombs or Damien Jurado.
