Raposo is a different kind of project from Fernando Epelde, singer and keyboardist of the bands Modulok, Alta Cabeza, and Spam. Each of Raposo’s demos takes a free approach to a concrete style: electronic, acoustic pop, spoken word, a remake of a porn movie soundtrack, or even an album of duets.
Currently, the project has made finding good, simple and unprejudiced pop songs its focus. This has culminated, for the first time, in album to be released on vinyl exclusively on El Susto Records.
Raposo has been touring between conventional spaces (various festivals, clubs, and most recently finalist at Proyecto Demo competition) and not so conventional spaces (Red Bull Scholarship for sound artists, art galleries, scholarship Sound-In), and is continuously performing in Spain and Germany. Lyrics in Spanish and English talk about paying for subway rides in Berlin, urban art, dinosaur skeletons at museums, news of kidnappings, the ignoble art of nail biting or old decks of erotic cards, each time approaching the same questions from a different perspective.
“Viejo”, Raposo’s new album, is sung entirely in English and comes in a neat vinyl format, with cover art by the urban artist Aïda Gómez, filled with new themes emerging from Galicia, Madrid and Berlin.
