Maronda is a musical project by Pablo Maronda (Valencia 1978) and Marc Greenwood (Valencia 1980), the bassist for La Habitacion Roja (The Red Room). Joining them in a live performance are Paco Beneyto (Midnight Shots) and Dani Cardona (Una Sonrisa Terible). The Guitar groups on the east coast and American folk are the main references of this duo that is looking into the past of Spanish pop.

Recorded on the run between Marc Greenwood's home and Dani Cardona's studio between February 2009 and August 2010, "Elf Fin Del Mundo en Mapas" (The End Of The World In Maps) is a diary of a catastrophe: the dispersed signs of an irreversible tragedy, the maps of shipwrecks-emotional and ideological- of an omniscient presence that analyses its life at the end of the journey. And, it discovers that it is almost like returning the beginning: the true Apocalypse is that we are not dead and that everything begins over and over with no possibility of redemption. But, "EFDMEN" is also the key to arriving to the end of the world. It is the end of the world that the ancients imagined the engravings and stories as the fabulous abysm where the sea pours into the black tapestry of the cosmos, and that "they sought" in the books of 19th century rummage sales-those ahead of their time stories by Jules Verne, H. P. Lovecraft, or Robert Loius Stevenson.

A record that sounds to Los Brincos, Byrds, Pixies, Smiths, Phil Spector, Jesus And Mary Chain, Richard Hawley, Tindersticks or Nacha Pop, Velvet Underground, Family or Decima Victima. These are some bands that come to your mind when you listen to their riffs, arrangements or melodies.
