avatar for Resplandor


The band was brought to life in early 1996, with a sound influenced by shoegaze and noise pop recording some songs that were published in 1998 (Sol de Hiel Ep). The idea behind Resplandor was to create an exciting music with different beats, textures and feelings. The band's debut single "Ninfa" firmly established them in the music scene, receiving great reviews. The long awaited debut live performance was hailed a success after a strong sold out audience pack at the Bauhaus Club. After several gigs along 1999, the band got into the studio to record their debut album "Elipse" which was published on Feb. 2000; some songs came along to be part of different international compilations as "Picnic Basket" from Shelflife Records, "Orange Pop" from Losing Today Zine, "Atlantic Flowers" from Alison-Clairecords-Midsummer Madness, "Test Tones vol.1" from Clairecords-Tonevendor and a tribute to Slowdive from So Soft. Resplandor hooked up with Alison Records from Germany in 2002 which released "Ambar" on Sep.2002 receiving greats reviews followed by a tour on the US East Cost, in BB.AA Argentina at Fuga Jurassica 5 festival. On April, Lunar Disco from Spain release a tribute to Echo and The Bunnymen titled "Play the Game" which the guys record a version of "The Killing Moon". The band re-released "Elipse" in digipack including 2 outtakes and 2 videos from 2000. Resplandor took some break off to come back with some new ideas. Two new songs Oeste & Solar were released in a CD Split with The Radio Dept, and then another two songs Twilight & Breathe, but this time were produced by Ian Catt, came alive with another CD Split with the band Mahogany. The band has performed live with bands such as The Radio Dept., Mahogany, Airiel, Lovesliescrushing, Robin Guthrie, Asobi Seksu, Soundpool, Elika, The House of Love, Mark Gardener, The Jesus and Mary Chain among others, promoting new songs. Last September 2007 the band went into the studio to start recording their recent album with Robin Guthrie. This new album P L E A M A R reflects the best era of Resplandor, more mature and solid, with new lineup. The album was recorded at Estrella Negra and Alpamayo Studios featuring the collaboration from Andrew Prinz & Ana Breton from Mahogany and Scott Cortez from Lovesliescrushing and Astrobrite This new album compiles 9 songs where emphasize a mixture of sounds shoegaze and electronic with melancholic melodies and lyrics in which stand out this production.
