There was a blind spot, or vanishing point, now illuminated, between proposals such as that of Mikel Laboa and Einstürzende Neubauten. They are Serpiente, a Bilbao trio made up of Ana Arsuaga, Beatriz Perales and Elena Núñez; practicing as a medium among the tonal explorations carried out almost a century ago by the German musicologist Theodor Adorno, the most gloomy, perfidious and necrotic post-punk of the 80s, the musings towards the most gothic surf-pop and an evident connection with the Basque cultural movement Ez Dok Amairu, which between 1966 and 1972 was dedicated to recovering and renewing Basque culture. The first long album of the Basque trio is clearly experimentally motivated, discovering new margins that go beyond pre-established genres, and which presents these Serpiente as one of the most unclassifiable and necessary voices to reconstruct both post-punk and vindication. of Basque folklore. Hence, in the little more than twenty minutes in which the nine songs sung in Basque and Spanish that make up this debut titled “Krisanteilu” extend, and a new paradigm opens: that of a punk with access to the museum, and the of avant-garde art with access to pogo, mosh and slam.
