Los Blancos are the embodiment of the quiet confidence that underpins the Alt/Pop scene growing rapidly in Carmarthenshire, South West Wales. There is no compromise to Los Blancos's sound, they are unashamedly creatively open, with songs bursting with the drunken passion and abandonment of The Replacements and Mac Demaco's playful joy - the joy of creating within the four walls of the rehearsal space.
Los Blancos are a band bonded in friendship, Gwyn, Dewi, Emyr and Osian have known each other since school days. The band is an extension of that friendship where musical and lyrical honesty are paramount. Kris Jenkins aka Sir Doufus Styles (SFA, Gruff Rhys, Cate La Bon, H Hawkline, Gulp) has been working with Los Blancos at his Cardiff, Signal Box, recording studio. This is a perfect pairing of artist and producer whose joint sonic boundaries are still a mystery to be explored.
