When we go to Primavera Sound festival we know we are going to see a whole load of bands who are really worth watching. When we arrive we are also blissfully unaware of some bands that are worth listening to – until they hit the stage.

CayucasHere are some of the new bands we caught at Primavera, that we seriously suggest you check out:


This band have been ducking in and out of our new music radar for a few month’s now, but we had not been paying much attention. These clean-cut indie-boys, make the music that their Hawian shirted image would suggest. Like Vampire Weekend, with a hint of tropical Calypso sounds instead of the Afro-beat influences, Cayucas are all addictive melodies and lovely vocal harmonies. These are chilled guitar sounds for the summer months.


By contrast post-metallers Syberia brought a cloud of darkness over the Barcelona site tearing apart the smallest stage. Their epic rock instrumentals built on crushing riffs, affirming walls of noise and rhythmic intricacies drew a rightfully large crowd.

Sex Jams

This Vienna based band are a modern-day conduit for everything that made late 80s and early nineties indie music so awesome. With lashings of shoegaze atmospherics and dreamy vocals, with the rhythmic power of late-era Dischord records material Sex Jams are one of our new favourite bands for 2013.
