Meet Nuria, the impossible to ignore drummer of Barcelona’s indie-pop band Kelly Kapowsky. Nuria’s life as an illustrator and artist always contained rhythm and flow, then one day she decided to sit down, occupy her partner’s drumkit and make the beats in her head come to life. It’s not easy to simply decide one day to become a musician, but Nuria sure makes it seem so.
Not long after, Nuria bravely decided to share her new skill; and thus Kelly Kapowsky was formed by herself and her best friend, and Kelly keyboardist, Eva Carasol. With a little bit of destiny and a lot of magic, Nuria and Eva were joined by Maite, Made, and Laia to create their current line-up. For all members, it is their very first musical endeavor, learning to play music through their collective songwriting.
Three years after picking up a pair of drumsticks Nuria and Kelly Kapowsky have played in some of Barcelona’s biggest festivals and events, have released a wildly catchy EP, and are in the process of releasing another called ‘Horses’, sure to be equally infectious.
For Nuria, playing drums unlocked an entirely different part of her personality; primal, powerful, and confident. With this confidence, she never preoccupied herself with conforming; her drumming is unique and totally her own. The rhythms are every bit as fresh as they are surprising; clear and simple beats arranged in intricately weaving, constantly changing patterns. Matched with the energy of her bandmates, Kelly Kapowsky is fun and inspiring music for musicians and music lovers of any and all levels.
