It's been a few years since Barcelona's Cruïlla Festival decided to expand beyond the traditional summer event held annually in Parc del Fòrum. First, he decided to make his seasonal debut in Barcelona's stadiums, as Cruella Primavera. Last year, he chose to land in other points of Catalan geography such as Battia with Cruella Terra Alta, or Penedes with Reasons. This year, the ante is upped even further with the new Cruilla Baix Segre Festival, which fills the south of Segrià with more than a dozen concerts that coincide with the flowering of the fruit trees.

The artist from Lleida was performing in his home region, but the heavy rain that fell throughout Catalonia throughout last night left the concert hanging by a thread until almost the last hour. But fortunately, luck aligned with the artist and he was able to present the new album Mouth watering (Primavera Labels, 2023), which on Thursday, March 14 will receive the Enderrock Award for Best Album of the Year by critics at the 26th Enderrock Awards. Throughout the hour and a quarter of the concert, Clara Viñales and her quartet – made up of drums, bass and pads – were on the safe side and delivered a powerful, well-prepared proposal that did not stray far in terms of the repertoire offered in January at Barcelona's Apollo Hall.

The show started with songs like “Trobo a faltar” and “Finestra” – from the popular 2020 album Love is hot (Primavera Posters) – which showed that Viñals is not only an excellent composer of pop songs, but also a great performer with amazing guitar solos. The live show continued with more tunes such as the radio show “Globus”, “História” or the most popular song Mouth watering: “The River”, where Hugo Alarcón showed off his command of the platforms. Also noteworthy is the song “Gira-sols”, which Viñales performed alone on guitar and vocals. In fact, it was the only theme saved from an already distant debut The fruits of your forest (BankRobber, 2014), which precisely last Monday marked ten years since its publication.

And in the last part of the ceremony Rinaldo and Clara He chose to leave out some of the highlights such as the American indie influence track “Making Friends” or “It's Better on the Street” or the hits Love is hot: “Rodones”, “to get an idea” or the subject of the same name. Undoubtedly, the Lleida quartet proved that they have a show with their own personality and know how to wow the audience whether in a vintage setting like today, or at midnight at a big festival.
