Pares, is the conceptual name of the solo project of David Espinola (Vilanova i la Geltrú, 1980). Intended at first as an umbrella for exploring filial relationships through music, Espinola’s lyrics have expanded to more vast topics, such as romantic love, heartbreak and bucolic ambience. Having penned enough songs to make a record pushed the project into a whole band, comprised by David Espinola, Danny R. del Moral, Lluís Vidal, Jordi Contreras and Marc Grau Jr. Pares is self defined as a band influenced by american folk and rock with a dash of psychedelic, that can perform the most intimate song or the fattest riffs.
The first steps of the band was recording its first LP, at Mi Casa Teléfono Records during 2015. De Sota Els Pins, released by Temps Record in spring of 2016
Espinola has been a staple of the indie catalan scene since his teens, touring extensively with Zivil, Pere Tapias, Los Rotos and Suite Momo, among other acts.
