Primavera Sound Barcelona



Name and surname: Gabriela Casero.

Place of birth: Madrid.

Age: 24.

Alias: MOW.

Three reasons why she is the sign of his times:  

Her first single, Grasiah (2017) became viral by algorithmic magic and was listened to more in Manhattan than in Tres Cantos. It didn’t do too badly in Los Angeles, San Francisco and D.F. eitherShe is compared to Lana del Rey and to Björk and to Angel Olsen as well as to divas of synth dream pop.  Boundaries (physical and stylistic) go for her!Her new album is called Woman. And if there is one word that defines this year, then surely it should be this one: Did you hear us Oxford English Dictionary people who chose without listening to us? “Woman”, not “toxic”. “Wo-man”.

You’ll like her if you like:  videos of people eating pizza, word games, the fact that songs written in Madrid are listened to in Manhattan before Tres Cantos.
