When Nalda Became Punk

When Nalda Became Punk are a Spanish three piece, quite possibly the finest popular beat combo ever to hail from the Iberian peninsula. The band started as the solo project of Elena Sestelo, inspired by artists such as Heavenly, Ash, Helen Love and Belle and Sebastian.

Last year Roberto Cibeira and José Oliveira joined the band in time to record the debut single, which was released last month on vinyl by Pebble Records and digitally through the usual outlets.

The band are currently in the studio, working on their first full length LP for release later this year.

And this is a track from Sestelo’s 2010 mini LP, Time to Meet Your Family.
