Surgidos en Madrid a finales de los 80, la carrera de Los Imposibles comenzó en los bares de Malasaña en tiempos de revival garagero y rockero, pero a ellos lo que les gustaba era el beat de los Beatles, el pop de los Brincos, el folk-rock de los Byrds o el rhythm and blues de los Animals, eran un grupo que avanzaba en dirección contraria, sin destino, pero convencidos de lo que hacían. Llegaron momentos de experimentación con la psicodelia, posteriormente se atrevieron a crear una “poperetta” que dejó a todo el mundo boquiabierto por la descomunal muestra de talento para crear complejas y preciosistas joyas de pop que remitían a obras maestras del pop clásico de los 60.
Con el paso de los años, Los Imposibles desenmarañaron sus melodías para acercarse a la pista de baile, entrelazando sus habituales gemas pop con temas de rhythm and blues y soul. Vientos y alma negra que abrieron paso a aires de nueva ola y powerpop descarado ampliando su espectro de ricas tonalidades.

Hace unos 7 años, su principal compositor, Paco Poza, concibió un disco doble que mostraría las dos caras del alma Imposible, su latir más rock’n’roll y negro por un lado y su delicadeza pop más psicodélica por otro… por suerte para su disquera Bickerton Records, aquel proyecto de dividió en dos álbumes.

La primera parte “Red!” apareció en 2017 y ahora llega “Escarlata?”

La obra más deslumbrante de la longeva carrera de los madrileños. Un disco inmenso de cierta estructura conceptual, orfebrería pop preñada de intricados arreglos y numerosas capas rehechas una y otra vez durante estos últimos años de turbulencias, melodías laberínticas en las que el oyente puede refugiarse descubriendo infinitos detalles. Todo ello enfundado en un precioso diseño dibujado por su guitarrista David Lorenzo. Estamos ante el trabajo más ambicioso de los Imposibles, su particular “Pet Sounds”, “Odessey & Oracle” o “Vainica Doble”.

Raised in the world-famous Madrid rockandroll neighbourhood of Malasaña in the late 80s, these guys swam against the tide from the beginning. While everybody was into the garage revival, what they really liked was The Beatles, Los Brincos, The Byrds or The Animals... they were in love with beat, r&b and folk-rock, what could they do?

Later they experimented with psychedelia, created a delightful "poperetta" (one of the truly masterpieces of Spanish pop) and went back to roots dancing to black sounds until they decided to take a rest of 10 years! ... they came back in good shape in 2007 bringing a perfect powerpop record under their arms and entered a new phase.

About 7 years ago, lead composer Paco Poza came up with the idea of a double album that would show both faces of their soul, their black rock’n’roll heartbeats and their psychedelic sensitivity…that project was eventually split into two albums.

“Red!” saw the light of day in 2017 and now it’s time for second part “Escarlata?”

The most dazzling work in their life indeed. A massive album with a certain concept structure, a fine goldsmithing job full of intricate arrangements and rich layers, entangled melodies where the listener can hide and discover infinite details. This is their most ambitious album, a true masterpiece, their very own “Pet Sounds”, “Odessey & Oracle” or “Vainica Doble”
