The Murcian band has decided to stop their own musical time and Phe Festival will be the last stage in the Canary Islands to see it live: it will be next Friday, August 18 in Puerto de la Cruz
Second has been on stage for 25 years, being one of the most representative Spanish indie bands
The last time. An instant that is so afraid. Well, a moment like that, one last time, will be the one that will be lived with Second in Phe Festival. The musical event in Puerto de la Cruz will be the last opportunity to see the Second band live in the Canary Islands. The Murcians will be on the first day of the eighth edition of Phe Festival: Friday, August 18.
Sean Frutos, Jorge Guirao, Nando Robles and Fran Guirao are unplugging from the music scene at the end of 2023. They have been on stage for 25 years as one of the most representative Spanish indie bands. Although they began singing in English, the success in Spain made them return to their native language to communicate perfectly with the Spanish-speaking public and to live a prolific musical career in terms of studio albums -nine plus one live (titled 15 )- positioning itself as one of the best bands of the last decades in the Spanish territory.
Live is their natural habitat and in their farewell statement they have made it very clear that the energy of this latest tour will be very special. Their repertoire will include songs from their latest album, 'Flores imposibles', but also those great songs that characterize them: 'Invisible', 'Rincón exquisite', 'NADA', 'Primera vez' or 'Nivel inexperienced'.
Beyond being pigeonholed in a certain musical genre, Second has defined in some interviews that indie for them is "something in which art prevails over the commercial". They have changed record labels on several occasions, but without losing their identity and always knowing that they would make the music they wanted. That music that excites and on many occasions rides on optimistic melodies and choruses that stick to your feet almost without wanting to.
They have been true to themselves for 25 years. They have not abandoned halftime, they have composed long songs without fear of the next button, they recorded a live album accompanied by the string and brass sections of the Murcia Region Symphony Orchestra or they rejected adding color to their musical palette although sometimes they went up to a major key without qualms.
Phe Festival is going to be one of the fields where Second will give everything. It will be like throwing out the remains when it is the last opportunity to stay in the memory of the public. And while M-Clan talks about not staying in someone's memory forever on 'Stay Over', Second will put on a memorable and unforgettable concert at Phe Festival.
Second will be special within Phe Festival. Legends of dance music and electronic culture will perform on the Porto stage, such as the British Orbital; and a wide catalog of proposals of different octane and style that have as protagonists Trueno, The Reytons, Natalia Lacunza, Arde Bogotá, Jimena Amarillo, Sexy Zebras, Bala, Rocío Saiz, Adora, Antiplancton, Shinova, Rocío Márquez & Bronquio, Morreo , Ghouljaboy, Hoonine and Zurych.
