After releasing the mini LP “Own” (September 2011), TUYA ceased to be the personal project of David T. Ginzo (lead vocals, guitar) and became the full band it is today including Héctor Ngomo (bass, keyboards, vocals), Juan Diego Gosálvez (drums, chorus) and Brian Hunt (guitar, keyboard and vocals).
Last March they recorded “Waterspot”, their first album, which will be released on September 25th by Subterfuge Records.
The recording took place in Nave de la Musica in Matadero Madrid. With Karim Burkhalter at the controls, their first album was recorded fully live. They also made a documentary video with each one of the songs and the full recording process of “Waterspot”.
Born in Gijón (Asturias) in 1985, David T. Ginzo, composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist musician, presents at last his own themes under the name of TUYA, after being part of bands including Templeton or Lüger and having played with well known artists such as Anni b Sweet, El Hijo, Catpeople or Sidonie to name some of the more than 20 projects in which he has taken part.
After some demos and acoustic gigs, he published his first EP, “Own” (Subterfuge Records, 2011).
With a feverish obsession to reinvent and modify spaces, David T. Ginzo starts from a kind of classical pop song to create a complex labyrinth of sounds, including noise as a sonorous resource, to show something different, deconstructing to build something new.
Every one of Tuya’s songs is an exuberant and pulsating experience, in which nothing is ultimately defined but is instead ceaselessly changing, transforming, creating new relationships and new contexts.
David’s lyrics are obscure, describing situations in which the conflict of the soul and the tension between human relations are taken to the limit.
Listening to TUYA is to feel that bittersweet and oh-so pleasant emotion that grabs your soul and never leaves you indifferent.
