LA BIEN QUERIDA has gone from being one of Spanish pop’s biggest promises to being one of the most amazing realities that has hit the national panorama in years. “Romancero” has been acclaimed in all the press, earning covers of various publications (EP3, Mondo Sonoro, Plástica and El Obrero Digital), various praise and elegies, selected as one of the best albums of the year. Ana Fernández-Villaverde has already made her way across half of Spain as well as to a few other festivals (Primavera Sound, Benicassim, Contempopranea, South Pop Isla Cristina, etc.). Here at Elefant we are continuing on with this incredible phenomenon with the release of a single called “9.6”, one of the most talked about songs because of the surprising disco-pop that the song gives us after those 45 seconds of acoustic introduction, meaning one of the compositions that has mutated the most from its original conception to its final result on the disc (this CD includes the demo version recorded at Ana’s house more than two years ago now). So the two remixes included on this new single celebrate this marked evolution: the remix by Guille Milkyway [LA CASA AZUL] emits a sweet Motown only to finish in an amazing rhythmic game with a new and different musical conception, while the HIDROGENESSE [French Hot Dog] remix takes the track much more boldly and brazenly and plays a fun game with the lyrics. Finally, the release contains the video-clip made specifically for the song, directed by Luis Cerveró (one of the most important and innovative directors, responsible for video-clips for LOS PLANETAS, Christina Rosenvinge, LA ESTRELLA DE DAVID and Joe Crepusculo). Cerveró takes full advantage of the song’s tone to give the video an air of clear eighties nostalgia and irony; Ana is incredible; David Rodríguez and Joe Crepúsculo shine with her like authentic italo-disco stars, simulating a live television performance, in the style of how it was done in the 80s. The final touch is the choreography that pays homage to Ballet Zoon and Valerio Lazarav, who recently passed away. There is no doubt that this year is “the year” of LA BIEN QUERIDA and 2010 promises even more to come!!!
