Las Kellies started in 2005 when three girls met at a gig in Buenos Aires, decided to have a band together and borrowed their friend’s amps and instruments. Their third album, ‘Kellies’ – released by Fire Records and mixed by Dennis Bovell (see The Slits, Madness, Fela Kuti), sees Las Kellies mixing catchy garage sounds with dub and post-punk that has earned 8/10 in NME and 4/5 in BUZZ.

Singing in Spanish, English, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Catalan and French, Las Kellies spent several years ensuring their prominence on the Argentinian music scene. With their first record, ‘Shaking Dog!’ (2007), they created an irresistible blend of raw, spicy rock that owes as much to old rock and roll as it does the Raincoats, which turned out to be a veritable birthday party of a record.

In 2009 their second independent record, ‘Kalimera’, was released. That same year Las Kellies took the new, tighter songs on their first international tour, rocking the Old World, unleashing their infectious energy onto Europe with their garage rhythms, teasing impertinence and all-out fun live shows that incorporate the dress sense of Devo and the bounciness of ESG. Las Kellies are: Ceci Kelly; guitar and vocals, Sil Kelly; drums and vocals and Manuela Ducatenzeile; bass.

“They boast what is clearly an encyclopaedic understanding of all the best bits of new wave both sides of the atlantic, plus the fortitude to throw the rulebook clean out the window and sometimes sound just like themselves.” - NME 

This year Fire is going to release 6th Las Kellies album, *Friends & Lovers*, with classic and mature post punk/rock sounds and lyrics that browse between all sorts of ways of expressing love. Starting November, Las Kellies are coming back to the Old World for the sixth time around Europe and UK !
