SALVATGE COR are a Majorcan four-piece band founded in 2013 by Llorenç Romera Pericàs (guitar, vocals), under the motto «bedroom pop & living word». Gabriel Abrines (guitar), Ferran Bellver (drums) and Leonardo Prieto (bass) complete the line-up.
With a penchant for printed poetry and urban life, the ideals and songs of SALVATGE COR delve on the immediacy between musicians and audience, and the exploration of topics such as identity, alterity and intertextuality among the different arts. According to Tomeu Canyelles (40putes magazine), they mix «in a very personal way musical and literary influences that range from Television to The Libertines and from Rimbaud to Emily Dickinson.»
L’U (Runaway Records, 2015), their debut release, was recorded, mixed and mastered by David Pringuer (THE MIGHTY ROARS) at Sa Moana Studio, Sóller (Majorca), during Easter 2015. Virgínia Garau designed the artwork of this six-track EP, which includes five songs (Polsina de cascall, Miss Lonely, Jaculatòria, Salva’m ara del demà and El poema més salvatge), and a spoken word experiment (Oh Endemai), which pays homage to the beginning to PATTI SMITH’s Horses.
As well as having played as a support act for MISHIMA and EL PETIT DE CAL ERIL, they participated in Summer Pie Festival (along with RAYLAND BAXTER, THE ROSSELLYS and EAMON MCGRATH) and MONDO SONORO’s Fiestas Demoscópicas in 2016. That very same year, they won the ART JOVE Contemporary Music Award, becoming one of the new sensations in the Catalan-speaking scene. Currently, the band is finishing their first LP, to be released this 2017.
