"Getting their start in October of 2009, The Limiñanas are the brainchild of Lio and Marie Limiñana. Beginning as a home studio project the duo spent much time flipping through John Barry and Ennio Morricone LPs and books on Victorian era architecture, watching Noir films, and basking in the sounds of southern France, seeking inspiration. Their first single came by way of Chicago's venerable Hozac records, followed up by a single 7" release on the fledgling Trouble In Mind in April 2010. It's been noted that there are traces of Serge Gainsbourg, Beck, Stereolab, Gospel, Yeh-Yeh, guitar fuzz freakouts, and Nugget's-era stompers in the Limiñanas music. All of which may be true, but Limiñanas' sound is irreverent and singular. This release has a cinematic feel, with its reoccurring themes, lyrics and instrumentals taking cues from influences like Gainsbourg's great Histoire de Melody Nelson LP, as well as the 1960s soundtracks they've become enamoured with."
