“Fiera is about to transgress, to regain a position of power and control over your life. The idea of appealing to instincts, to the most basic, to, on the one hand, know who you really are and, on the other, access that energy and use it to break the shell ”
Fiera is an uncomfortable band. Beyond that their references and musical tools are more or less sharp and rough, it is their attitude, their lyrics and their general staging that is deeply disturbing and at the same time irresistible. Because Fiera bases its speech on the trash, on our trash, the trash of fears, complexes and frustrations that we hide under the careful display of happiness, fulfillment and balance of our punctually aerated “social” lives. The one that accumulates like dust under the bed and when one dares to look, it’s scary. Fiera forces us to lower our heads, look and even rub ourselves in the shit, and also shows us the way in their own flesh, in a performance of brutal sincerity, seasoned with a sharp and insidious humor that does not shy away, rather multiplies , the confrontational character of it, and ends up destroying our defenses to drag us with them in the maelstrom.
The unease and bourgeois emptiness of the Aljarafe – Seville suburb, one more franchise of fierce capitalism in the form of an escapist dream turned into a suffocating nightmare – the daily horrors of the millions of videos uploaded every day to YouTube or the films of Ulrich Seidl provide the plot basis of their first album for Humo (and second by the band). The oblique rhythm of no-wave, the abrupt industrial textures and the impudence of post-punk illuminate its sound in a debut “Déjese llevar”, which although at the time seemed like a simple satellite entertainment of the mother band -Pony Bravo- , it is now augmented and enriched with large doses of cheeky electronics – many of the instruments are pure DIY made at home – and cheeky, lewd and sharp, which looks just as much at the ghetto-house as at the barbarous footwork of Jlin. A mix of its own and non-transferable, powerful and tremendously addictive has turned “Aljarafe” into a small underground classic and the duo formed by Pablo Peña and Darío del Moral in a reference band, from which only good things can be expected. (and ugly, very ugly).
