The Crab Apples (Catalonia)

The Crab Apples is an indie pop band from Barcelona formed by Carla Gimeno (vocals), Laia Alsina (electric guitar) and Laia Martí (bass).

In 2014 they released their debut album, Right Here (Discmedi), which was followed by the EP Hello Stranger (Discmedi, 2016) and a tour that led them to play alongside great bands such as The Beach Boys, Nada Surf, Sidone and L.A. In 2018 they released their second album, A Drastic Mistake (Hidden Track, 2018). Following this, in 2019 they published the EP More Mistakes, accompanied by an extensive tour throughout Spain, which led them to take the stage at big national festivals such as Primavera Sound, Sonorama, VIDA…. In 2020, in the midst of the pandemic, they released most of the singles of their third and most powerful album, CRAP, which is now available thanks to Spanish independent music label DSK Pop.

CRAP is definitely a step forward for the band, as they have collaborated with producer and musician Victor Valiente for the first time. He has given his particular understanding of electronic music to the band’s sound, sampling and filtering their own instruments (bass, guitars and voices) to come up with new, unique and original sounds that work as sintetizers.

This past 2021 The Crab Apples have appeared among the best national albums of the year lists of renowned media outlets and are considered one of the most promising emerging Spanish bands.
