Biography

Barcelona, Spain

Saying the name Mishima is speaking about not only the great Japanese writer but one of Barcelona’s most influential bands of the 21st Century. Despite the fact they started singing in English, the five-piece band fronted by David Carabén started using his mother tongue around 2005 and paved the way for the new wave of indie bands writing songs in Catalan language. Loved by the press and with a fan base growing in geometrical progression, they’ve just released a new album, their seventh, recorded at the mythical Black Box Studios with the help of Peter Deimel (The Kills, The Last Shadow Puppets, Anna Calvi). Hailed as their best, “L’ànsia que cura” (TRIS-Warner, 2014), captures the raw energy of their live set and a sophisticated range of influences including The Smiths and JG. Ballard, Randy Newman and David Lynch, Tindersticks and the chanson française. Think The National born and raised by the Mediterranean Sea.

Band members:
Xavi Caparrós - bass
David Carabén - voice, guitar
Marc Lloret - keyboards
Alfons Serra - drums
Dani Vega - guitars
