FUTURE ISLANDS, GIRL BAND AND FKA TWIGS WILL PLAY IN PARC DEL FÒRUM

“Primavera” is in the air and three new bands will be joining the main programme in the Parc del Fòrum: The Americans Future Islands and from Dublin, Girl Band, who will both play on Thursday 29th May and the British artists FKA Twigs, who will play on Friday 30th.

Future Islands scale new heights. After being on the labels Upset The Rhythm and Thrill Jockey, the band signed to the influential British label 4AD at the beginning of this year and will release their fourth album soon. A record that is opportunely called “Singles” on which they express the poppier side of their sound, that is full of familiar choruses and home synthesisers.

Girl Band are from Dublin and after only a couple of EPs and the impressive single "Lawman" they have become one of the bands of the moment. While they are preparing their debut album their concerts sell out wherever they go thanks to a sound that takes a little from minimalism and from krautrock repetition and a little from electronic music, but that also has powerful guitars and a singer with an impressive vocal style.

FKA Twigs is a young English dancer and producer who self edited her first tracks with videos of them all on Youtube, this caught the eye of the Young Turks label that release her on their label in 2013. Her ethereal R&B has been mentioned in media such as The Guardian and Pitchfork.
