Alex Casanova

The last Big Bang in Spanish pop is Alex Casanova, a Galician who, like Julio Iglaesias, went from being a promising young footballer to become one of the most talented and least prejudiced young composers on the most hybrid alternative music scene. He goes between Eighties hedonism and new wave synthetic trash pop, without flinching when he proclaims himself to be the heir 2.0 of the Tino Casal legacy (as you can imagine from the design of his album by the Japanese artist Yoko Honda, who has recently worked for artists such as Kylie Minogue).

His debut album, "Antagonasia", first release on the Crispis label not only works with great ferocity, mascara and eyeshadow to stand out as the revelation album of the season, but also is a propostion full of immediate hits, valid in the indie niche or in a mobile disco, the lunchtime session or any recreation of the "movida Madrileña", with free access to the playlists of Radio 3, Los 40 Principales, Club Disney or Máxima FM.

All set to retire Joe Crepúsculo, El Guincho and La Casa Azul in a single stroke, Alex Casanova's songs move from 80's Spanish trash pop (Objetivo Birmania or Loco Mía) to the newest synthpop scene (Javiera Mena, Alex Anwandter, Lo-Fi Fnk o Yeasayer),from references to classics of glitter and fashion shows like Culture Club, Bananarama or the Pet Shop Boys to throwaway disco dance like Vengaboys or Blanco & Negro Mix.
