Nita and Ale are not trying to be revolutionaries, but in fact they are.
The former could be seen as pretentious, whereas the latter is driven by a desire to innovate and not repeat what others have done before.
So when they got together in 2009 – Nita's background was flamenco and copla; Ale's was black-influenced dance music (Mojo Project) – they wanted to combine a danceable electronic beat with a flamenco feel and the energy of rock and roll.
They both define their music as: "organic dance songs". Nita, the frontwoman, changes from Spanish to English, naturally, the same way she changes from soul to flamenco and from pop to rock ...
With "Trece Lunas", their second album, Fuel Fandango have thrown another element into the mix – pop – which is more of an attitude than a musical genre.
That's where co-producer Duncan Mills (Florence + the Machine, Jamie Cullum) comes in. "This second album is more pop; the first was more dance, more about finding a groove", says Ale Acosta. So they got songs that are straight to the point, but also explosive and spontaneous, like a Fuel Fandango live performance.
In April 2016 they have released their smashing third album "Aurora" (produced by Steve Dub, The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy...) - which charted #2 in the Spanish music charts in it's first weeks after release - combining all elements that make Fuel Fandango such an outstanding band, but on the other side comes along even more energetic and edgy than the previous ones.
In 2020 they are back with their fourth album "Origen", sung entirely in Spanish. The songs are infused with African rhythms, Spanish guitars, the flamenco cajón, and urban music; the lyrics and melodies show that the future is also the past, and perhaps the survival of the modern world will depend on a return to origins.
