The right moment of Nunatak
Nunatak releases Nunatak y Las Flores Salvajes (Warner Music / DRO), fourth album of their promising career, that represents a monument to the songs and the stories that become part of your life.
Nunatak y las flores salvajes arrives after Nunatak y las luces del bosque (2014), Nunatak y el pulso infinito (2016) and Nunatak y el tiempo de los valientes (2018), impeccable works that could well have been an adventure literary saga with the story of five musicians, with great courage and talent, embarking on a path in which only the sincerity of their lyrics and niceness accompany them.
The band has rejoined it’s trusted music producer, Raúl de Lara, to shape 10 new songs that demonstrate an evolution in attitude and power. Each song is an example of Nunatak's greatest achievement: A progression capable of travelling from the intimate whisper to an explosion of vigorous melodies, colorful and contagious that fill the heart. It is what happens from the first part of the album with “Quiero que arda” or “En tu nombre”.
An important detail of Nunatak y las flores salvajes is how the guitars sound. That force feels phenomenal to the band, with maturity and an incontestable poise. For example, in “Todas las campanas” they dare to navigate between powerful guitars and vocals close to blues and southern rock.
Where the great contribution of the guitars is more evident, in whose production Jorge Guirao (Second) has collaborated, it's in the most explosive song on this album, “Hijo de la tierra”, which adds the forcefulness of the bass, revolutionary sounds and amazing vocal harmonies.
“Hijo de la tierra” it's one of the songs that Nunatak is most proud of, both for the sound and the claims it makes, and for the participation of the choir Auroros de Nuestra Señora del Rosario de Rincón de Seca, a religious-folk brotherhood with more than 100 years of tradition. They are eminently liturgical and exclusive choirs of Murcia.
On the pop side we find “Creéme”, showing how the band has strengthened the work started on its previous album, that makes them builders of a pop with great intentions without affecting the craftsmanship with which they have always built their stories. The light fits in songs like this or “Mi gran virtud”.
On the most acoustic and intimate side, remembering band classics like “Solos”, appears “Viento del sur”, a song of just two minutes (more than enough) to create a complicit and charming atmosphere.
Nunatak also have the best remedy against those gray days of autumn and winter: “Coge mi mano”, “Criminal de guerra” and the grand finale, with elegant winks to the most sensitive electronics, titled “Ya he ganado”.
One of the great virtues that a band can have is waiting for the right time to face the world with strength and enthusiasm. Over the past six years, Nunatak have been getting reasons to be your favorite band. Once all the steps have been taken, the big jump comes, which leads them to be one of the great jewels of national music of the year.
Nunatak have always shined, but Nunatak y las flores salvajes has made them flash.
