Under The Woods

The sexy, dark and ultra-cool Capsula have come a long way since, with tours in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, South America, the United States and Canada. Based in Bilbao, Basque Country, north of Spain, their songs are shaking with the punk roar of The Velvet Underground and The Stooges, yet immersed in a psychedelia akin to that of the late 60s and 70s from groups like Os Mutantes and Pescado Rabioso in South America, the band’s birth-place. The result is 'a furious hologram with adhesive lysergic songs and future’. After three albums released by their own label in Buenos Aires, Argentina, they published 'Songs & Circuits' in 2007 (Liliput) in Europe, an album that garnered rave reviews from the international press and was received with great enthusiasm by the public, and was continued after storming SXSW in 2010 and receiving brilliant reviews placing the band in the Top 10 most exciting bands at the festival from Wired and The Chicago Tribune, not to mention Rolling Stone’s David Fricke picking the wild trio for ‘Fricke’s Picks’. In 2009 BCore Disc (one of the most renowned Spanish indie labels) published 'Rising Mountains' a wild energy cross of post-punk blues sounds with noise and psychedelia. The album hit number 1 in Spain (Ruta 66, Mondosonoro-Euskadi) and stayed as one of the top 10 albums on radio in the US. The trio has been wildly on tour with over 100 shows at festivals in Europe and America, launching 'Rising Mountains', a fascinating strange shock of adrenaline and sounds that hits straight through to your heart and bones.
