Elefant Party - 15.August.2015 - The Lexington, London, UK
The School + Papa Topo + 
Los Bonsáis 



Last Saturday we trekked down to the Lexington for the long-awaited Elefant UK Party, a celebration of great indie pop music and bands.     Los Bonsáis play the best clean songs

We had the pleasure of chatting to Nel and Helena early in the evening to find out what they’ve been up to and the plans for their new record which will be coming out early next year. For this, we attempted doing some simultaneous translation for the first time which resulted in a lot of giggling and bewilderment from everyone involved (hopefully to be edited before it reaches your ears - the interview will be broadcast soon on The Vinyl Dungeon - follow us on Twitter@vinyldungeon/@radionowhereuk for more details.) Later that evening, the Asturian band took to the stage to delight us with a set which included some great 'clean' songs, classics, material from their latest album Nordeste and a genius cover in Spanish of Part Time Punks by Television Personalities. We were also very excited to get copies of Temporal, the fanzine produced by Los Bonsáis which is dedicated to independent and alternative pop culture.

Papa Topo showed the British how to boogie
  


We met the members of Papa Topo backstage for a quick catch-up just before the start of their set. The band captivated the British audience with their energy, catchy tunes and coordinated outfits. They played some of our favourites songs such as La Chica VampiraLo Que Me Gusta del Verano and Oso Panda. Their cover of the Spice Girls’ Wannabe had everyone singing along, but the highlight of the night was Julia teaching the audience the dance moves to Sangre en Los Zapatos and watching everyone across the venue joining in!

The School performed the best half-naked headline set   After a confession from Liz about feeling half-naked without two of their band members (Fran and Kay), The School proceeded to mesmerize us with their songs, including some from their new album Wasting Away and Wondering which is due to launch on 4th September – make sure to keep an eye out for it. And for the grand finale, we had the entire Elefant family on stage for a massive sing-along and dance.
