Ponte Pilas are back and at the peak of their powers on excellent new E.P. 'From Del Boca Vista'
Berlin’s Späti-rock pioneers Ponte Pilas are back and showcasing their very best on new record ‘From Del Boca Vista’. The band, having written and recorded the bulk of the E.P. in Madrid in collaboration with Grammy-award winning Lucas Piedra Cueva, have released a four-track record that displays their most exciting and mature writing yet. A concept record, based around a fictional retirement home in Florida, the tracks explore themes of existential angst, anti-capitalist revolution and, of course, heartbreak. You can listen to the songs and see the track-list here.
Release Date: 09.02.2024
Winners of 2019’s Listen to Berlin award for their debut single “Eye for an Eye”, the band proceeded to release an acclaimed debut E.P. and album in the subsequent years whilst their touring schedule was disrupted by the COVID pandemic. They also collaborated with seminal producer Gordon Raphael (The Strokes, Regina Spector) on their album and subsequent singles. Their now legendary live shows have built them a fanatical following in their home city and led to touring opportunities across Europe, from Spain to Sweden via Britain and Bulgaria.
Describing themselves as the ‘Band Of The People’, who mingle with the audience before, during and after shows and bring a healthy dose of humor to their performances. It’s this philosophy towards their music that has helped secure dates with the likes of indie legends The Wedding Present, punk upstarts King Nun and The Clockworks as well as some of Europe’s biggest exports, including Portugal’s answer to Jack White, The Legendary Tigerman. 2022 saw the band invited to play The Great Escape festival in Brighton, around which they played their first UK tour, as well as various showcases (e.g. Future Echoes in Sweden, Spike in Bulgaria) across the continent which garnered them industry praise, whilst the summer of 2023 saw the band play their biggest show yet at Fusion Festival and headline a sold-out Urban Spree in Berlin as well as a number of well-received support tours.
