From the lovely capital city of Madrid, Spain emerges a musician that is eager to showcase the world of independent music through his voice. Lois Brea Area, lead-singer of surf-rock band, Trajano!, released his first single “Before You” credited to his solo-project Lois.
Known to sing in Spanish with his band, his solo-project breaks new ground singing in English and the change isn’t bad at all. On “Before You,” his howling but charming vocals remind me a bit of Tim Oxton of Wakes. His commanding vocals ride the surf-tinged guitars as minimal drums keep the track on beat. All recorded on a four-track tape recorder, it adds another layer of intimacy that I seek in music. This is a bright debut for Lois Brea Area. Listen to his follow-up single “Behold (our Grandeur)” below.
