Sounding something like a sunny mash-up of any number of psychedelic pop, folk revival, and easy listening artists from the '60s and '70s, Corazón nod to like-minded indie pop artists like Serpentina and Giorgio Tuma -- artists who, incidentally enough, also happened to be signed to the Spanish label Elefant in the early 2000s. Carlos and Nando formed the duo in Italy in 2001 while they were attending university. Corazón relocated to Madrid the following year, and over the course of the next few years they recorded their first demos and became entrenched in the local indie pop scene. Their debut full-length, Melodrama, was released on Elefant Records in 2005; the album garnered positive reviews in Spain, notably from the prominent Spanish music magazine Rockdelux. Corazón spent the next two years laying down some new tracks and touring Spain, at times sharing the stage with the likes of the Wedding Present and La Casa Azul. Their sophomore effort, Nuevo Futura, came out in the spring of 2009. ~ Margaret Reges
