Freddie Dilevi (vocalist Pablo Velázquez and his band), from Seville, Spain has been around since 2013 but other than that, information is a little scarce. What we do know is that ‘Teenager’s Heartbreak‘, the first LP, (aside from an EP released in 2013 – see below) was released by Spain’s Family Spree Records (vinyl still available) in 2018 and is now is seeing the light of day in North America via Rum Bar Records (on CD) ahead of a second LP expected sometime this year.
I’m sure you’ll notice that there’s something familiar about Pablo Velázquez’s voice, and his velvet croon really is the star attraction here. Like Scott Walker singing Ramones songs ‘Teenager’s Heartbreak‘ is 12 tracks (there are two bonus tracks on the Rum Bar CD) of picture-perfect ’50s/’60s spirited rock and roll without the horror punk.
For further proof of the talent at work here check out the self-titled 2013 EP on Grabaciones Cowabunga.
