Primavera Sound Barcelona



There was a time when long hair in music was synonymous to long-haired men, cocky attitudes and testosterone-filled bars. Those times are long gone. That is why in the Nébula, headquarters of everything good going on in Pamplona, four women decided to go from applauding… to being applauded. And they formed, surprise, surprise, guitars ready, Melenas. Their long hair moves in the wind to the sound of the most melodic garage, they know that riffs are gender-free and they know that what they’ve learnt up until now - Velvet, Thee Oh Sees – doesn’t have to carry on being the same old thing. The next time you’re at a club, let your hair down: you could be next.
