Safari

No hay mucho que contar últimamente y tenemos esto bastante abandonado... Aunque el otro día quedamos Ana y yo para ensayar y estuvimos hablando y decidiendo algunas cosas sobre el futuro de Cof Cof y puedo iros adelantando algo.

El próximo álbum de Cof Cof se llamará Safari y saldrá más o menos a principios de Marzo. No será ni un Mini-Album ni un Maxi-EP, y mucho menos una maqueta. Si todo va según lo previsto estará formado por 10 temas, es decir, 8 temas nuevos más Third y una nueva versión de T-shirt. Entre los temas nuevos habrá una colaboración muy especial.

Recordaros que el viernes que viene tenemos una cita con la gente de Barcelona. El concierto va a ser parecido a los de siempre, pero tocaremos tres nuevos temas (sin contar Third). No están del todo acabados pero da igual.

Aprovecho la entrada para recomendaros el blog de nuestro amigo Pepe, An Ideal For Living, del que me declaro muy fan:



Eso es todo de momento.

Love

two.one.five magazine

We're so flattered! A new review, this time from a Philadelphias's digital magazine.


Laptop-pop bursting with sunshine, the lo-fi effort from Spain's Cof Cof is blissful as a vespa ride along the Mediterranean coast . It's no surprise the boy-girl duo hail from the land of Siesta's given every single track on Who Said Party is a fast-paced dance track. Cof Cof, down to their indiscernible, accented lyrics and bouncy female vocals sound like the second coming of CSS. Thankfully, like the Brazilian babes who came before them, it hardly matters what they're saying because it all just sounds like a party. With their island-inspired beats and homemade synth, Cof Cof could warm up anything from a dance floor to a winters day. "Caribbean Boy," loaded with bouncing bass, snare drums and staccato guitars is so irresistibly pleasant, to dislike it would be both heartless and impossible. Other tracks like the loveable "Forbidden Cocktail," share that same playfulness contributing to the sense of overwhelming likability. (Unsigned)

Qué grata sorpresa!

Así se llama la fiesta en la que vamos a actuar en la Razzmatazz. No es por meter presión, pero ya no queda nada. Este es el cartel:

Antes y después de la actuación pincharán los Djs Tango&Cash: www.myspace.com/tangoycash

Y lo más importante, celebraré mi cumpleaños!, así que, si se me olvidan las letras ya sabéis lo que es!! jajaja

A ver, quien se viene??

We are still working on new songs...

Al final hemos decidido que durante los próximos meses vamos a ir acumulando unas cuantas canciones para colgarlas todas juntas en un mismo álbum.

Ayer estuvimos trabajando en algunas de ellas... no sé qué coño saldrá de esta especie de tribal grunge meets dark disco, pero bueno, la verdad es que personalmente estoy muy contento con el sonido que estamos consiguiendo últimamente y también con las letras, que cada vez nos da menos vergüenza cantar lo que nos da la gana.

Por desgracia, ahora el ordenador de Ana hace más ruido que nunca, parece que vayamos montados en un Cercanías, así que nos tocó cantar apartados de él y sentados cara a la puerta. Pero qué lástima damos, joder.

De momento una canción desechada: un tema reggae que yo quería llamar "El Baile de la Banana" y Ana no me ha dejado.

it'sthemoneyshot, we love you!

One of our favourites moments of our shows in New York, was while we were playing at the Lit Lounge, and suddenly a stranger appeared and started dancing. He kept dancing the whole show; non-stop. I tried to go and talk with him after the show. He was sitting and writing in a notebook. Alex told me: Ana...maybe he'S THE MONEY SHOT! And, yes! he was!. I went back later to talk to him but he was already gone; I would have loved to hug him.
And now, I've found this new post at his blog:

"Listen up. I have an extremely important announcement--we have to make Cof Cof famous immediately. The Spanish duo recently revealed that they are actually a trio, and their third member is being held captive until the world recognizes how awesome they are. The "third" is kept in a dark room slaving away to create the hot jams that Ana and Alex take credit for.

This is the premise of "Third", the latest track by Valencia's electro darlings. The song doesn't evoke the carefree summer sound of "Forbidden Cocktail" or "Caribbean Boy", but releasing a song like that in the middle of winter would be totally depressing. However, the sounds aren't drastically different from anything you'd hear on Who Said Party?, and the theme reflects their consistent sense of humor and quirkiness.

When I was working on the short-lived Audience Critic blog (bringing it back in '09!), I attended Cof Cof's show at Lit Lounge with the intention of writing a critique of their audience. I even took notes on a napkin, and if I will write that damn piece if I ever find said napkin. Why am I bringing this up? Well, even if I was paying a lot of attention to the audience, I did happen to notice that Cof Cof were the two cutest people on this entire planet. For that reason, I wish them fame and glory. And if they achieve it, I am going to be shocked as fuck when I discover their whole "joke" about a third member wasn't a joke at all..."

DAZED & CONFUSED


Menudo regalo de Reyes! Por fin han colgado en Dazed Digital (la web de la revista Dazed & Confused) la entrevista que nos hizo el bueno de Hynam:

No tiene desperdicio alguno... En especial la cara de subnormal que tengo en el collage.

Bueno, que os traigan muchas cosas los Reyes!
