Chavales

Musicians — Madrid

Name, where are you from? 
We are Javier from Mérida (Extremadura) and Daniel from Palma de Mallorca.

What do you do? 
We both have finished university and while we are looking for a job, we are focused on playing music.

Describe your style in three words? 
Romantic electro pop.

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
J: Robyn, Primavera Sound 2019.
D: Sophie, Primavera Sound 2019.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
J: Charli XCX because she is like one of these friends that you have in high school that loves to hang out!
D: Oklou, she’s fantastic and seems nice. 

Which subcultures have influenced you?
On the one hand, PC music because it is present in our social life and is part of our generation. On the other hand, the Spanish pop groups of the '90s for their fresh sound and the ease they have in transmitting love and friendship with their music.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
J: J.R.R. Tolkien, for him to tell me how he imagined the music that would be played in the Lord of the Rings.
D: Camaron, to listen to him singing some songs with his guitar.

Of all the independent venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
El Sol in Madrid because it is one of the most important venues for Spanish independent music history. We go with our friends a lot.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
J: Lady Gaga for her versatility and for her influence in recent music history.
D: Mozart because he’s the f*cking master.
