Pelazo “Carry On” 7″

So a few days ago I went to the “John Paul Keith” show here in Valencia. I usually go early to every show, so that I can get to see the opening band, I was surprised when I arrived there and Mr Keith started playing, I thought the opening band had cancelled or something. So after John finished his explosive show I went out for a beer and and some fresh air when suddenly I heard these catchy chords and melodies, I went in and there was this band from Asturias playing a mind blowing set. To make a long story short. I found traces of Cheap Trick, The Beat, The Raspberries, The Replacements, and Husker Du all mixed together. The band’s name was “Pelazo”, they are formed by : Adrián Cadaya : Lead guitar and vocals Vini Serrano: Bass and vocals Pibli Gonzalez Drums and vocals Pablo Alvarez Torre : Rhythm guitar and vocals First of all, they all sing!! Now that’s a weird thing in the year 2022, and they also do it well, which is even weirder. They played that gig like if it was their last, and so I decided to write a few lines about their latest release, a 2 song ep which consists of “Carry On”, a complete Power Pop gem. This is an original cut that sounds like The Who meets The Plimsouls, in your face Rock and Roll with a 70’s twist so this is probably why it is not a strange thing at all that the other song is no other than a cover of Todd Rundgren’s “Couldn’t I just Tell You” I’m in love with this band, I strongly suggest you guys listen to them You can do it here :

  1. I totally agree. It’d been ages since a band last made me jump and dance like they did.
    Very catchy songs and a super-packed band live.
