Spanish Love Songs is a five piece punk band based in Los Angeles, CA. They formed in 2014 after the demise of a previous band and a chance Craiglist post about lonely people looking to go to punk shows. Their sound combines the energy of drunken bar shows with the immediacy of intimate, lived-in lyrics.

Self released in 2015 (and later reissued on Wiretap Records), their first album, “Giant Sings the Blues,” chronicles singer Dylan Slocum’s mid-twenties through songs about apathy, anxiety, and a slowly disintegrating marriage, all told over fast drums and rousing power chord

They are currently prepping for the release of their second album, “schmaltz”, which finds the band expanding their sound both musically and lyrically. More anthemic than ever, the band tears through ten songs in which Slocum tries to find a positive way to handle the loss of those closest to him while inching towards self-acceptance in a world that doesn’t always feel like home.

It’s new ground for the band of so-called grouch punks. It’s also Spanish Love Songs at their absolute best, so they’ll try to enjoy it.
