about

A few months ago we received a different demo tape, one which was easily distinguished among the lot of tapes coming with the mail. It came from Granada, a town with an acknowledged pop tradition (LOS PLANETAS, 091, LA ESPECIE SUB...), and it featured two pure pop songs which soon got -and still remain- stuck to our minds. Obviously, we couldn’t resist and decided to release a single with the songs from that demo, keeping the spontaneity and lo-fi freshness of the originals, before we agreed to announce the forthcoming debut LP of the band.

The band was called CECILIA ANN, and was formed in May 1993. After passing more than two years inside the rehearsing local, sculpturing their sound and creating from nowhere (this is the first of project of all its members) an amazingly solid personality, they finally come out with “Si No Lo Ves”, a new track produced by LOS FLECHAZOS’ Alejandro Díez (also included on their CD-Single “Nidea”), accompanied on the flipside by these fantastic, sugared tracks, like a poisoned candy which would give the most pleasant of deaths.

CECILIA ANN’s sound is a mixture of the freshness of a band just beginning to walk with an unusual self-consciousness in such a young band: they are masters at composing, mixing strong or crystalline guitars with austere, elegant keyboards. The characteristic Rickenbacker sound is backed by the efervescence of the organ, and the three voices make a perfect melodic whole, similat to the best craftsmen of the American pop. Something that’s almost hair-rising in a band still developing, whose best moments are surely still to arrive. If you add a glamorous, stylish image, and Spanish lyrics to sing along to, there’s no doubt we are in front of one of the most important debuts of the last months.

Track Name: Si No Lo Ves
Si no lo ves acércalo
Ponlo al revés o vuélcalo
Busca porque, obsérvalo
Y cómo fue, porque razón

No me lo vuelvas a contar
Tú siempre intentas estar por detrás
Tan sólo tienes que pensar
En ser otra vez una persona normal
Que quiere aprender para poder enseñar

Qué vas a ser, pon atención
Sólo una vez, inténtalo
Qué vas a hacer, explícalo
Convénceme, acláralo

No me lo vuelvas a contar
Tú siempre intentas estar por detrás
Tan sólo tienes que pensar
En ser otra vez una persona normal
Que quiere aprender para poder enseñar
Track Name: Un Segundo (Demo)
Siempre quiso tener brillo
Parecer algo especial
Se veía convertido
Cuanto le iba a gustar

Te admiraba como a un divo
A quién debía imitar
Deseaba ser tu amigo
A quien poder hablar

Él quería estar contigo
Esperaba que fueras su hogar
Tú solías ser su abrigo
No comprendo que le pides más

Te seguía a cualquier sitio
Sólo y sin preguntar
Y atendía como un niño
Que aprende con mirar

Ese tiempo que ha perdido
Quiere recuperar
Cuantas veces me lo dijo
Cansado de esperar

Él quería estar contigo
Esperaba que fueras su hogar
Tú solías ser su abrigo
No comprendo que le pides más
