How can you not stop and listen when you hear the youthful vocals of this indie punk-pop band, Lisasinson. Under the label of Elefant Records in Spain, the little band that could released their debut album this year and if you are not listening, you’re missing out.
Over the past year, Lisasinson has released a handful of singles but their album, Perdona Mama is here. Míriam Ferrero (vocals and guitar), Mar Espinosa (guitar and vocals), María Martínez (drums and vocals), and Paula Barberán (bass and vocal) make up the band. Lisasinson’s style in teenage punk. It’s not even skater-punk. It’s fast and in your face, and made my wife perk up her ears.
When I think of punk music, I want to hear a garage band sound like Sleater-Kinney but that is where the pop comes into punk. Think of a little J-Pop female singer with their high voice singing a punk song. This is what you get when listening to Lisasinson. There is nothing wrong with it it. They are teens, or maybe a tad older but they are singing not about the world’s problems like the punk of forty years ago. Lisasinson sings songs for their crushes, falling in love, riding bicycles, and more.
I don’t know how long Lisasinson will be around but they are doing very well on the digital platforms with their juvenile sound. They are a band to watch. Maybe with age and experience, they will bring this punk sound to another age group. There is a lot of room here for growth and with what they are giving us, I can see another Donnas-type band.
