When Nalda Became Punk
2. Moderns You Should Stay Home
When Nalda Became Punk started as the solo project of Elena Sestelo (Vigo, Spain). In 2006 she gathered some songs, inspired by artists such as Heavenly, Ash, Helen Love or Belle and Sebastian and released “Tiny noises make tiny music” her first demo, though at the time the name of the project was just Nalda.
After a long break, she came back to recording songs during summer of 2010 when she finished her second demo “Time to meet your family” which was her first release using the name of When Nalda became punk (taken from one of her new songs, yet to be released). She also released a free digital single with Bubbletone Records on November 2010, still available in their website.
Later on, in 2011, Roberto Cibeira and José Oliveira joined the band completing the current line-up of When Nalda Became Punk. They began the recording of their first 7” single at the British label Pebble Records which is bound to be released in late July. The two songs included, exclusive to this single, are “When Nalda Became Punk” and “DIY”. The single was recorded with the help of Ivan and Eva from the Spanish band Linda Guilala and was produced by Ian Catt (producer of Saint Ettiene, the Field Mice, the School, Nosoträsh, etc).
The band is currently at the studio, working in their first full length album, planned for release later this year.
