Aitor Etxebarria will return to Dabadaba this afternoon, where in February of this year he already presented ‘Nihilism Part 1’ (2019), a superb album that contains repetitive rhythms, contemporary minimalism, jazz, neoclassical and post-rock. Tomorrow, on the other hand, it will be the also Biscayan Vulk who will return to the Egia room, where they promise two sessions of polyhedral punk that they compare with “a kick in the stomach.”
Born in Gernika, where he was born in 1985, Etxebarria combines aquatic and electronic musical instruments, and attaches special importance to pianos and synthesizers. For this reason, they warn from the room, “their recordings navigate between post-rock landscapes with a marked depressive tendency, in minimalist and somewhat curious settings.” This composer, who recently received good reviews for the soundtrack of the soap opera ‘Hondar ahoak’, practices a mix of “exuberant ambient” and “art rock” ideal “to enjoy sitting down.”

- Day and hour
Today / Tomorrow (19.00 / 17.00-19.00).
It will be more difficult to stay tied to the chair during the two performances that Vulk will offer today at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Habituals of the Dabadaba, which is also the publisher of his records, the people of Bilbao sound “like alienation and rage.” Post-punk or just plain punk? It depends on the song. Some topics carry the heaviness of cloudy days, and others explode desperately running towards the end, ”says the organization.
