songs for the jet set

Spanish pop is often so twee it can be irritating. Not to me! Cola Jet Set are fully conscious of what true indie pop is about and they take it to the extreme… shinny bright colours, stripy vintage dresses, retro nerdy attitude, modern psychedelic pop with 60s soul influences. They are one of the lucky bands that will play Indietracks next weekend (it hurts to just even write this). Cola Jet Set have their second album "Guitarras y Tambores" out now on the most lovely elefant records.

ps. On a second note, I wish I knew spanish, but as I’m just a human with certain (admittedly very few) flaws, I DON'T! I can easily pretend I understand the lyrics but... I'd be thrilled if you guys added some more english on your myspace/ page!


  1. Hi,

    I could try to translate the lyrics of this song if you want, but (I'm sorry) my level of english isn't good enough to do it. If you didn't know, Cola Jet set, is a band made up with 2 former members of Los Fresones Rebeldes (Felipe and Cristina) and the singer is Ana (La monja enana). This song (My life's dream) was recorded in 2008 and took part in the selection for Eurovision. Sincerely, I prefered Los Fresones Rebeldes....
