Bands | Muñeco
Muñeco is a five piece indie rock band from Barcelona founded in 2011. Their music is a fusion of indie rock, krautrock and some bits of soft psychedelia in a harmonic sound well composed and perfectly played. The band just released their self-titled debut EP, a starting point of a work to keep in mind. This band is going to give us very good moments for sure. Listen to them!

Muñeco is the never ending search for a sound that integrates our passions: psychedelic musical hypnotism, the escapist capability of post-rock and the physical impulse of dancing. We are Muñeco, five guys from Barcelona.

Interview with Muñeco
1. How did the band begin?
Muñeco started on 2010 in Barcelona, with Albert and the two Raul, as an improvising musical project. On 2011 both Xoán and Manel joined the band and the five of us found ourselves giving the wheel of Muñeco a further spin, and redefining Muñeco’s sound to what it is now.
2. How would you define the sound of the band?
Our sound is the result of five unconscious folks letting everything out. We have never followed a pre-defined composing schedule, an agenda aimed to sound like this or that band or style. We believe music would not move forward and evolve if we followed that path. Said this, no one escapes his personal history and, of course, there are bands which inspire us, such as Delorean, Can, !!!, Pink Floyd, Explosions in the Sky, Tortoise, Animal Collective, Mogwai, Spacemen 3... In conclusion, we could say that the three basic pillars of our sound are psychedelia, post-rock and dance music. Muñeco comes from and goes there.
