«An architectural wonder of pure analog electronic sound as we have not heard
for a long time, with splendorous timbres that tend to the dark but also to the

Even it’s structure, with 9 songs presented in the form of a
conventional album (synthesizers, voices and guitars), hides a thread

in realising hidden fantasies.
«Mima blanca» (Margen Records, 2003) has 10 untitled tracks in which
we sought to give our own take on adapting the music of Diamanda
Galás and Nico to conventional instruments.
To do it, we augmented the line-up by adding trumpet, flugelhorn, sax,
accordion, guitar and acoustic drums.
The lyrics deal with the theme of fear of motherhood.
