Primavera Sound Barcelona

Day Pro


The sweat. Coming off stage sweating like you had just played a football match at 40 degrees. Having a live act so infectious that even the venue staff end up dancing. The ultimate incitement to let yourself go, to live music like a hurricane that comes and goes and leaves its mark. Conttra, the Barcelona quartet that debuted in 2017 with their eponymous LP, endorse sweat: ours on the dance floor and theirs on stage. Heirs of the stage ecstasy of bands such as Franz Ferdinand, Foals, The Rapture and !!!, those ones that don’t take any match as friendly or a stage as too small. In 2018 they released the EP 2050, which includes the disco-funk track I Got Down On My Knees For You. Never a truer word spoken: at your feet, kiddos.
