Life has taken Gizmo Varillas in some strange directions.
Raised in Bilbao yet now raised in Cardiff, the rising musicians also spent time rambling across the entire breadth of France.
So it's fair to say he's travelled. Developing a quite singular dedication to his music, Gizmo's lush, warm nuggets of tropicalia have found a devoted audience.
Lauded by 6Music and a viral smash online, each track seems to contain some kernal of truth, delivered in a summertime manner.
With a new EP coming Gizmo Varillas is able to share new cut 'Freedom For A Change' via Clash. With the weather beginning to turn, this contains some much needed sunshine...
Tune in now.
