This project could be the inheritance of Menguals previous work Maitia, with new original pieces written with the aim of offering an excuse to project the personality of each and every musician and turning it into a slow, sincere and ephemeral dialogue.
Pintxo Villar, Toni Vaquer and Oriol Roca fulfill this need thanks to their personal and musical affinity as well as their enormous talent and sensitivity. The songs are inspired by the simplicity and the space, and the silence is another essential element in the band, fighting against the excessive information and betting on the lyricism and the authenticity of the speech.
U is the name of this first work by David Mengual Slow Quartet, the starting point of a project with the intention of ongoing development.
