I’m From Barcelona – Violins

I'm From Barcelona

I’m From Barcelona (actually Jönköping) surprised and delighted us back in 2011 with their album Forever Today, so when they announced new album Growing Up is for Trees this week (via a video where it sounds a bit like they were clapping Madonna’s Give Me All Your Luvin’) we got quite excited. The lead single Violins swiftly followed and continues with the slightly chirpier Arcade Fire sound that we’ve come to expect from this ludicrously large group of multi-instrumentalists. Upsettingly, violins don’t feature particularly high in the mix, but the lyrics are an ode to the wonders of music and it does all of a sudden feel like spring is a little closer. The album follows 25 March.
