History[edit]

The group was formed in A Coruña although the members are from different parts of Barbanza, and A Coruña. They take their name from the song Bizarre Love Triangle by the British band New Order. Before recording their first album, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro recorded two self-produced demos that reached the semifinals of the demo competition DEMO Project of the Festival Internacional de Benicàssim two consecutive years in 2004 and 2005. In their beginnings the band was a quartet, deriving over time into a quintet before the recording of their first album, in which they form as a trio, until the entrance of Oscar Vilariño and Rafael Mallo, and with the departure of Julián Ulpiano (drums) in 2009.

Once signed for the label Mushroom Pillow, they recorded their debut self-titled album, Triángulo de Amor Bizarro in 2007, with technical Carlos Hernandez, known for the producing independent music albums independent of well-known bands like Los Planetas Sr. Chinarro and Mercromina . The album received very good reviews from the press, appearing at the top among Spanish albums 2007 (ranked 2nd in the journal Mondosonoro and 9th in Rockdelux). In addition it was also picked among the best of the decade's most influential music media, as Rockdelux, Mondosonoro, Jenesaispop and others.[1][2]

That same year they also release El Hombre del Siglo V, a compilation album of their two early demos which also includes three new songs.

At the end of 2009 they begin to record their second album entitled Año Santo produced by Paco Loco and is released in May 2010. De la Monarquía a la Criptocracia is released as a single accompanied by a video directed by Luis Cervero. Año Santo receives positive critical acclaim from both the press and public, and is celebrated as one of the best so far the year. They tour the album in Mexico and play the festivals of the peninsula, like el FIB, Paredes de Coura, and de México, where they participate in Corona Capital.

In 2012 they recorded the digital single Ellas Se Burlaron de Mi Magia at the Red Bull Studios in Madrid, produced by Peter Kember (Sonic Boom) and mixed by Roberto Mallo.
