Horror, they tell you ‘The latest rumor’ to the rhythm of motorik

Espanto, the group made up of Riojans Teresa and Luis, to whom we owe some of the most personal albums that Spanish pop has produced in the last decade, such as ‘Ísimos y érrimos’ (2011), ‘Rock n’ Roll’ (2012) ‘Fruta y verdura’ (2016) or, most recently, ‘Cemento’ (2021) is back with a new album. ‘Rumores’ will be their next release in Austro-Hungarian and the first preview is already available. ‘El último rumor’ is our Song of the Day.

In this single, Espanto tells the story of a rumour that reaches “the village” and travels “from mouth to mouth” “flapping its wings”. In the lyrics, Teresa and Luis never reveal what the rumour is, but they do confess that “we didn’t want to hear it” and that, in fact, they are the subject of such gossip: “They were talking about us, the voices in the wind”, Teresa sings.

To tell the story of ‘The Last Rumor’, Espanto chooses a decidedly electronic sound, similar to that of his 2021 song ‘Photos with the authorities’. On the one hand, the keyboard draws a happy and lively melody that flies over the base. On the other, the electronic drums come alive with the fast and mechanical rhythm of German motorik. It is well known that rumors spread like wildfire.
