Stay Alive 02:36
Stay alive Stay alive Stay alive Stay alive Baby here I am, you know I’ll hold your hand Our love have faded away but I can’t see an end Hold me back again so I’ll try to understand Oh shine, just keep that light and bright
2.
Time takes us away The crashing end felt in your hands Scratching in your eyes, tears live behind your pride They dissolve in the wet your lies Mirrors reflected what we wanted Time takes us away The crashing end felt in your hands Scratching in your eyes, tears live behind your pride They dissolve in the wet your lies We were swallowed by our mirrors
3.
Blue Hour 01:55
There is no light, there is no bright in the blue sky I could see you, only if I tried The sun is always down, hidden in the skyline You could see me, only if you tried Somebody rides Somebody lies Some flowers bloom Some flowers die

R.G.S.N. 02:22
Revolution! Girls are in town They have come to take them down Revolution! Girls won’t leave you alone Revolution! Girls won’t stop They have come to take them down Tonight, tonight Revolution girls. Now Revolution girls. Now
5.
Winter Trees 03:09
Days in the grass, they won’t come back They felt alone through the lightning cracks Breathing the time, tasting the dusks I keep remember the sound of your bright smile And now your dreams desire it High, high We were high Days under leaves, just tickling your feet Who was the one who twigged we caught the sunbeams? Lying on the ground and standing in your mouth I’ll never come back to sleep caressed by your breeze And now your dreams desire it High, high We were high We were high

Stoned Heart 03:04
You was there alone and you had tears in your eyes (stoned heart) Now I know it’s all over and I wonder why Well it seems it’s my fault so you was cold as the ice (stoned heart) Now I feel so denied, there’s nothing I could try Blame it on the summertime Our love was not as sweet as a clementine Blame it on the summertime Boy, you know, I keep living on this mess of mine We couldn’t make it last, you blame me with your lies (stoned heart) Tears on the floor again, now I can see the end The cold is all I know so I had to let you go (stoned heart) Now I know it’s all over and the sun is so bright Blame it on the summertime Our love was not as sweet as a clementine Blame it on the summertime Boy, you know, I keep living on this mess of mine Stoned heart
7.
Brainwash 03:55
No one around. Will the sun rise again? I think I’m too scared ‘cause the pain filled my brain Feeling undone ‘cause the wound was so long Laid on the ground, I hit my sense up and down But it’s your head so why do I care? The sun is out and I feel no shame The brawls are gone, the light came on So hey now, I need a brainwash I thought I’d die so I prayed and then cried My mind was on fight and my heart sacrified Burying my faith (I was losing my way) I need a big escape to keep rolling again But it’s your head so why do I care? The sun is out and I feel no shame The brawls are gone, the light came on So hey now, I need a brainwash

After the vitality and speed of their debut 7” single, “Eat Tacos” as part of our New Adventures In Pop collection, which even got them a nomination for the Musica Independiente Awards, the new release, a mini-LP, from Antía, Marta, Guille and Miguel, which is to say, WILD BALBINA, has arrived. Recorded by themselves the past summer and autumn of 2013, in their bunker in Vigo, “Sisters Before Misters” reflects and expands on all the constants we could see in their first songs: youthfulness, energy, electricity, and freshness. It’s a journey from garage pop to Riot Grrrl to surf, incorporating influences like NME’s C86 and the California sound.

To start with, “Stay Alive” is the perfect meeting point between the unforgettable choruses of the SHOP ASSISTANTS and the dissonance of the PIXIES. The song is full of hope, which is expressed through the distortion in their guitars. “Looking Through You” keeps the levels of immediacy high, mixing the melodic skill of ECHOBELLY and the electric ferocity of BIKINI KILL, and talks about the passing of time and the lies that try to cancel it out. Their sound is dominated by a collection of unleashed and uninhibited melodic venting, like we can see in “Blue Hour” and which contrasts with the lyrics that are about melancholy and the saddest moments, and that make it absolutely clear how important this band with abundant attitude is.

“R.G.S.N.” shows this attitude off; it could perfectly be a hymn to the Riot Grrrl movement, and it wouldn’t feel out of place on a VIVIAN GIRLS or a BRATMOBILE album. “Winter Trees” puts its all in the feedback, somewhere between the wall of sound of RINGO DEATHSTARR and the poppiest addictiveness of FASTBACKS, and once again contrasts the musical immediacy with lyrics about the melancholy of remembering the past. “Stoned Heart” is another great pop song full of pedals and speedy rhythms, like BEST COAST or a URUSEI YATSURA with the reverb turned way up. “Brainwash” keeps the energy but leaves the immediacy for a more noise-styled progression that at moments brings them close to SONIC YOUTH at their most chaotic, between phrases of defiance and freedom.

But the most important thing about this release is that it shows the feelings that WILD BALBINA are capable of creating, even more clearly: an infinite dose of energy decorated with solid melodies, unforgettable choruses, and that magnetism that makes it impossible to stop listening to “Sisters Before Misters” on repeat, like one of those revitalizing live shows you never want to end.
