    Another amateur recording of the new song “More.” The audio isn’t all that much better than the one above (if at all), but the video is much better. Can’t wait to enjoy this song in a professionally-done version either “official video” or “live” if they can do another live recording at the same level of quality as their Teatro Metropolitan recordings. The official release date for the song is less than 2 weeks away. May 12.

    I dislike audience audio so much, I’ll wait for a professional version. It seems the main reason they get posted must be to relive the “I was there” or “We were there” moments, or for the few unique or novel live moments. Like Pau’s scream of destruction in Evolve.

    I heard or read that a group-produced More mix is coming soon, and I thought it’d be up by now, but I don’t see it. I much prefer their live shows that are professionally recorded over their fully produced videos, with audience audio much more just a background annoyance. The version of Evolve that was produced from (11?) iPhones and a drone during covid’s drought of live shows is exceptionally produced! I love it, especially without the audience. Other, quick/flashy cuts and other highly produced moments don’t (e.g.) give me time to actually watch how instruments are played or see how the musicians interact with each other during longer moments. You know, like Austin City Limits live production quality.

    I subscribe to Tidal for their high definition and remastered versions of music. My LG L405 phone has exceptionally high quality audio, so the only bottleneck in quality is when I don’t listen with my studio headphones. Even the phone’s bluetooth has AptX HD quality. (It’s not as good as wired quality, but it’s relatively high quality, with mobile listen-anywhere convenience.)

    I can’t wait for audience-free or audience-muted versions of More to come out, either!

    The new song will be released May 12. I presume that means with some sort of “pro” video, either “official” (studio setting) or well-produced “live.” I prefer their well-produced live videos like the ones recorded in the Teatro Metropolitan CDMX (Metropolitan Theater of Mexico City). This one was also recorded in Mexico City, but I’m not sure of the venue. For an outdoor live video, both the audio and video are up to a pretty high standard. BTW, Dsny has perfected a terrific sneer. Her facial expressions and hand gestures contribute a lot to the band’s stage presence.

    Thanks a lot Unseen, you just cost me a couple of hours. Where’s our musician @robert? He should be here by now, mocking our obsession.

    I wanted to post a longer, more relevant response, but don’t want to take attention away from Sunday School.

    Maybe they could tour with Hello Mary who are still evolving but I think have good potential.

    LOL, I think they play really well and have some interesting riffs. It’s good to hear young people writing and playing guitar-based rock. Besides playing local shows, I have been writing dozens of songs for various singers this year. I have sold several with all rights.

    Well, prepare to lose more time. Here is their song “Martirio” (Martyr) which looks to me like a candidate for a classic rock anthem. It’s one of their Spanish language songs.

    Here’s the thing for me when it comes to this band. a) They are all expert instrumentalists* and can sing three part harmony, b) they are excellent songwriters**, c) they have an astounding level of charisma, and d) they are just so “man bites dog* (“An all-sisters power trio from where did you say?”).

    * Trained in classical piano from a very early age.

    ** Their songs are developed collaboratively but Pau is the one who usually initiates the process with a song idea.

    I couldn’t easily find an official translation from the band, so I went to ChatGPT, which seems to agree with other comments I saw. They’re talking to a martyr or all martyrs? Focusing on the darkness of their fate, and the last line finally clarifies the previous lines: “Your sad life, foolish martyr, say goodbye”.

Focusing on the darkness of their fate, and the last line finally clarifies the previous lines: “Your sad life, foolish martyr, say goodbye”.

    Here are the lyrics to Martirio along with the running translation verse by verse:

    A veces las cosas obvias son las más difíciles de ver
    Te asfixiaste con tus propias manos
    Cuando todo apunta a que por fin alguien te viene a rescatar
    Te encuentras nuevamente abandonado

    Sometimes the obvious things are the hardest to see
    You suffocated with your own hands
    And when everything points to someone finally coming to rescue you
    You find yourself forsaken again

    En tu martirio, ahógate
    Es tu destino, entrégate

    It’s your martyrdom, drown on it
    It’s your fate, surrender

    Intentas buscar explicación en lo profundo de tu ser
    Y vuelves a caer en el vacío

    You try to find an explanation in the depths of your being
    Just to fall back again into the void

    Al fin te das cuenta en secreto que el dolor se quedará
    Sеrá tu nueva vida de martirio
    Ya no hay vuelta atrás, no puеdes escapar del fuego a tus pies
    Y en la oscuridad, te perderás

    In the end, you silently realize the pain will stay
    It will be your new martyrdom life
    There’s no coming back, you can’t escape the fire at your feet
    Yet, in the darkness you’ll get lost

    En tu martirio, ahógate
    Es tu destino, entrégate

    It’s your martyrdom, drown on it
    It’s your fate, surrender

    A veces las cosas obvias son las más difíciles de ver
    En tu martirio, ahógate
    Es tu destino, entrégate

    Sometimes the obvious things are the hardest to see
    It’s your martyrdom, drown on it
    It’s your fate, surrender

    Aprende de los que sufrieron
    Si hay que vivir en miedo
    Es mejor morir en manos de un adiós
    Tu vida triste mártir tonto di adiós

    Learn from those who suffered
    If you have to live in fear (then)
    It’s better to die at the hands of a farewell
    Your sad life, foolish martyr, say goodbye.

    The Warning wasn’t put together in a day. They are the product of an evolution that started when they were quite young.  I read that someone made a comment on one of their videos that their family abused the girls along the lines of the Jackson family, grooming them for stardom in the hope of using them to get rich. Me? If you watch interviews with the girls, they are in control and their parents are along for the ride. They are happy. They love each other and their parents. They show every sign of coming from a healthy and supportive family whose only motivation seems to be helping the girls achieve their dream.

    Dany and Pau are on the record that their younger sister is the most talented member of the group. I found this piece where Ale plays a complicated bass part pretty effing impressive. For players I note that while she plays with guitar picks occasionally, she mostly plays finger style as here:

    The official audio of their new song dropped (finally). These chicas just keep getting better. Can’t wait for an official video to go along with the audio.

    No sooner said than done!

    LYRICS:

    VERSE 1
    There’s something pulling me away
    Something criminal but I can’t fight it
    Won’t you tell me what to say
    Or pull me in and keep me nice and quiet

    Keep me here
    Closer
    In the clear

    PRE-CHORUS
    Just Kill the noise won’t you fill my void?
    Give it all up won’t you feed my senses?

    CHORUS
    You know you love it
    You love it when I need you
    Do you need me? Yeah

    You know I love it
    I love when it when you feed me
    Yet you leave me begging for more

    VERSE 2
    I feel it slowly creeping in
    I find desire leaves me frozen, stranded
    Waiting between what could’ve been
    Why am I sinking when I’m fully grounded

    Standing still
    Go in
    For the kill

    PRE-CHORUS
    Just Kill the noise won’t you fill my void?
    Give it all up won’t you feed my senses?

    CHORUS
    You know you love it
    You love it when I need you
    Do you need me? Yeah

    You know I love it
    I love when it when you feed me
    Yet you leave me begging for more

    BRIDGE
    I want it and you know it
    Starved but never show it
    You like it when I’m broken
    You like it when I’m broken

    CHORUS
    You know you love it
    You love it when I need you
    Do you need me? Yeah

    You know you love it
    You love it when I need you
    Do you need me? Yeah

    You know I love it
    I love when it when you feed me
    Yet you leave me begging for more

    Here’s a real surprise, a very good slow tempo tune with minimal instrumentation featuring Pau’s voice and her own lyrics. These girls seem able to put their mind to anything they want to. This is a lyric video that features only audio and lyrics, so don’t expect to see Pau and her sisters.
