Los Fancy free wants to take you on a trip by train, leaving the metropolis, through noisy industrial areas, then the countryside, a forrest, a lake, maybe a village then a new town. An acid trip with no need of intoxication. Experimental pop music.

Biography

LOS FANCY FREE NEVERGREENS VOL. 1

Nevergreens Vol. 1 is Los Fancy Free’s 3rd album (Vol. 2 will be released later this year, including a 10 min long psych-out version of Dire Straits’ Sultans of Swing…) and will quickly be heralded as a swansong for the band in the digital universe of Mp3’s. Singer, composer and producer of Los Fancy Free, Martin Thulin, born and raised in Sweden and living in Mexico City since 1994, explains that he wanted to make an album to be listened to from beginning to end and describes Nevergreens Vol. 1 as a journey by train: You leave the downtown station… travel through suburbs and industrial areas… Suddenly you reach the countryside; open landscape… a forrest, a lake… a village… the sea and then maybe a new city.

Los Fancy Free’s lyrics speak of the many aspects of life, including friendship and love, but also with a clear point of view towards life in a more and more globalized world, the effects of commercial television on society, and the freedom of choice in the western world where you can choose exactly the same things all over the planet, or in Los Fancy Free’s own words, Eumerica.

Los Fancy Free’s other albums Menonita Rock and Out of Place have both been released in Europe and Mexico on Bungalow (Berlin), Mushroom Pillow (Madrid) and Noiselab (Mexico). Nevergreens Vol. 1 will be released internationally on Silicón Carne, also home of Dungen and Stereo Total in Mexico.

But then when we hear shit like Mexico City's mega awesome Los Fancy Free pile bendy guitars on look-I'm-riding-a-moped vocals into a big breezyass racket—a racket that is psychedelically "groovy" but subtly so and not at all Austin Powers—we want to give our neighbors to the South a gigantic hug and invite them to our party where we will be serving silver Patron because we are classy like that and we want them to have a good time . THE FADER (US)

It wouldn't sound very probable that someone from Scandinavia in a Latin country full of boiling passions like Mexico, would give us a lesson of how to make a true live show, but that's the way it is. DEEP (MX)
