On their second album, Tales From New Babel, Barcelona trio Speaker Cabinets continues to highlight the unrestrained and danceable charm of their infectiously fun alternative rock sound,
boasting bigger hooks and a more exciting appeal than ever before.
The concept album surrounds the story of siblings Suzan and Alan May and their fight for the rights of the people of New Babel. This narrative is fleshed out throughout the album through their upbeat, fun sound, and six of the tracks have music videos on the band’s YouTube channel to help illustrate and compliment the sci-fi story.
The lofty ambitions of the trio and the sheer scope of the project transcend the musical side
of things. There is a six-episode podcast series also available on all digital platforms in order to
allow listeners to completely immerse themselves in this all-encompassing story of their creation. It is this lack of any kind of boundaries and restraints that makes Speaker Cabinets feel so exciting and fresh. This is reflected as much in their music style as in everything else. Shades of alternative
rock, indie rock, electronica, and psychedelic rock are found in their flowing and engrossing sound,
in a style that has been progressing in a fluid and adventurous fashion since their emergence back
Impossible to put in a box, packed full of surprises and filled with emotional depth and an enticing
narrative, Tales From New Babel is a body of work that showcases everything that makes Speaker
Cabinets feel so distinctive and exciting. Nacho, Guillem, and Adrià have redefined what it means to be a power trio and built a whole multi-faceted, multi-media world around their sound, and one that listeners won’t want to leave anytime soon.
