Piti has recorded all the instruments (guitars, bass, drums, piano, keyboards and production) for the sole purpose of doing something all his own to speak of the miseries and joys of his day to day, and get an album full of introspective songs that not turn their backs to the world. And has the unique collaboration of Xavier Calvet (Bullit) and Víctor Valiente, partner Standstill, which brings its know-how with some guitars and pianos.
For this second job, Elvira has blown this whole spectrum of influences to achieve a sound where you can discover them all with no visible seams.
As a preview to the album, Elvira recorded an EP shared with the hip-hop project Elphomega and is available in free download bandcamp.

“Déjame ser” is one of the songs in “A pesar de todo” and the video is an acoustic song recorded in the Olympic Village in Barcelona.
