Els Amics de les Arts Short Info

Els Amics de les Arts is one of the examples of what some have called the new wave of Catalan folk-pop. Their songs are short stories made with simple melodies, touches of electronic music, wordplay and lots of irony. After several demos and a disc, the album 'Bed & Breakfast' (Discmedi, 2009) was the real step forward: they went from being friends who shared a flat in Barcelona, to sell over 45,000 copies of the LP.

His next work, 'Espècies per catalogar' (Discmedi, 2012), placed them at number 1 in iTunes Spain and drove them to make a tour which was immortalized in the CD-DVD 'Tenim dret fer l'animal' (Discmedi, 2012).
Last 2014, the band presented their latest album 'Només d’entrar hi ha sempre el dinosaure' (Discmedi, 2014) which in his first week on air, it was #1 in itunes and Amazon in Spain. 'Només d’entrar sempre hi ha sempre el dinosaure' is simply a further step of an established band which it's in constant evolution.
