PELUQUERIA CANINA - JOVENES PROMESAS LP
Their name translates to “Dog Grooming,” their album title to “Young Promises.” But Spanish punk quartet Peluqueria Canina are speaking directly to their peers, in a language they all understand. There was a time when bands from non-English speaking countries rebelled by singing in English, but now it’s much more relevant to sing to your community.
Their music draws on street punk, Agent Orange style surf-punk, angular moments of post-punk, 1977-style rave ups, all brought together with a unique angry/melodic vocal approach that is 100% their own, and 100% in the moment (no nostalgia!)
Blasting through 10 songs in under 25 minutes, Peluqueria Canina prove that punk rock is rock ’n’ roll is the true international language.
