Interviews

Los Campesinos!

In a Heavenly Land

May 15, 2009

"It's like a magical, unreal, heavenly land, isn't it?," observes Los Campesinos! violinist Harriet about the Coachella music festival. The Welsh band is hanging out backstage at the festival in the California desert a few hours before their energetic performance later that afternoon. Los Campesinos! released their first two albums, Hold on Now, Youngster and We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, in 2008. The band has been recording their third album in Connecticut, but took a break for a short U.S. tour, including their Coachella appearance. We spoke to Harriet and drummer Ollie as they spilled the beans on what to expect from their next album, which is due out next year. More

Few British bands walk the indie walk as devotedly as Los Campesinos!. Since releasing their debut LP Hold On Now, Youngster... in 2008, the Cardiff-bred sextet have continued to roam the music industry's less resplendent echelons without feeling the need to compromise their direction of travel for commercial success (give or take appearing on a few actual commercials).

Hello Sadness

Arts & Crafts

Nov 17, 2011

Los Campesinos!’ fourth album begins with “By Your Hand,” a perfect example of everything for which the Welsh five-piece has made its name—jaunty instrumentation, multi-voiced melodies, and witty lyrics (the chorus completes the title phrase “By Your Hand” with “is the only end I foresee,” a choice double meaning for the dichotomy of a complicated relationship). More

Romance is Boring

Jan 28, 2010

If Los Campesinos!' first album, Hold on Now, Youngster, was the sound of worked-up adolescents pining for easy sex, and its rush-released follow up, We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed, the sound of crushed young adults learning there's no such thing, the group's latest, Romance is Boring, is the inevitable realization that even stable relationships don't make sex any less elusive.
