The Saurs
Magic Shape El Segall del Primavera

Article written by Ged M - Nov 18, 2015

The Saurs are a band from Barcelona (Sueiro – guitar/vocals, Engui – guitar, backing vocals, Alejandro – drums) whose debut album mixes fast and furious garage-punk and harder rock. There’s huge energy but less sophistication in this record, though the charming hidden Spanish language track following ‘Flashlights’ suggests a touch of Os Mutantes and a definite Spanish feel. On other tracks though, it’s more American-influenced, with echoes of Thee Oh Sees and Black Lips on the fiery garage-rock title track and the twisty ‘Thursday’, while ‘Came To You’ is surf-punk and ‘Flashlight’ combines Nirvana-esque hard rock with melodic touches. The frantic revved up garage-rocker ‘Ain’t No Deal’ is a stand out but, while the energy levels stay in the red throughout, it’s a bit formulaic and you feel your attention levels slipping.
