Formed in 2010 and with origin in Reus and Tarragona, Islandia nunca quema is a band that, at first glance, maintains a canonical position with regards to music. They are not intended to invent anything, nor transgressing universal music genres like pop and rock. Elegant melodies with guitars and a rhythm section that makes a virtue of simplicity, which involve a great voice without artifice, but with personality.
His songs have a classic approach, song of a shared songbook and very present in the collective history that remembers Buddy Holly, The Kinks and The Go-Betweens.
A pair of singles and an LP, Applause (2014) have been enough to earn the respect and consideration of critics like Rockdelux and Ruta 66. They have played with Robert Forster of The Go-Betweens and are included in OST of La propera pell, last film Isaki Lacuesta.
Islandia nunca quema are Javier Gonzalez, Salva Miranda, Carles Riba and Jordi Ximeno.
