'La Granja' is a Mallorcan power pop group, whose activity was developed, above all, from the late eighties to the mid-nineties.
For some, it is one of the best formations of Spanish pop music.
They have seven albums on the market and an extensive collection of songs.
The Asturian 'Feedbacks' are a cult group within the power pop scene of this country from the mid-1990s to the present, with songs ranging from punk influences to the country.
'Los Malinches' is a group from Murcia that defines its sound as "psychedelic garage, tremendous beat-pop and small doses of tropicalism".
They have released several singles and an LP entitled 'En el agua' (Groovie Records), which saw the light in 2018 and has led him to play in numerous halls and festivals and also to visit German lands twice.
Power pop is inspired by American and British rock from the 1960s. It typically includes a combination of musical devices, such as strong melodies, clear vocals and crisp vocal harmonies, economical arrangements and prominent guitar riffs.
While its cultural impact has suffered ups and downs for decades, power pop is one of the most enduring rock subgenres.
The first time the term was used was in 1967 by Pete Townshend, guitarist of 'The Who', to define the music of his group, which is often cited as the predecessor of power pop, along with that of other contemporary groups such as 'The Beatles', 'The Byrds', 'The Beach Boys', 'The Hollies', 'The Zombies', 'The Easybeats' or 'The Kinks'.
