Biography

Havalina is a rock band from Madrid, Spain, founded in 2001 with the name of Havalina Blu. Their original line-up comes from bands like "Sugar Kane", formed by Charlie Bautista and Manuel Cabezalí, or "Rosebud" that they would later form with Sara Iglesias and Andrés Romero. In the current composition of the band we can only find Manuel Cabezalí, who have been joined by Javier Couceiro since 2004 and Jaime Olmedo since 2014, after the former bassist, Ignacio Celma, communicated on social networks that he left the band for personal reasons.

As for the influences of his early work, include bands like Sonic Youth or Smashing Pumpkins. According to an interview for Casa America, Manuel Cabezalí talks about how his transition from English to Spanish was influenced by Soda Stereo and in particular the figure of its leader, Gustavo Cerati. In the last discs of the band a change towards much harder and obscure sounds is appreciated, with influences of bands like Kyuss, QOTSA, The Cure.
