Capsula is a rock band from Buenos Aires, South America. Their name is Spanish for "capsule" derived from the David Bowie song "Space Oddity." Influenced as much by 1960s South American psychedelic rock as by garage, they started in Latin America recording three albums and touring in Europe since 1998, when they relocated in Bilbao.
Singing both in Spanish and English, they use Surrealist automatism and Cut-up technique. They release "Songs & Circuits" in 2007, described as "garage rock for the 21st Century" with a reminiscent of The Stooges, The Velvet Underground and South-American dark vibes. They released "Rising Mountains" in 2009 with Ivan Julian (Richard Hell & The Voidoids) . That was followed by 2011's John Agnello-produced "In The Land of Silver Souls" and a re-imagining of David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars in 2012. In 2013, Capsula returns with the highly anticipated "Solar Secrets" - recorded, produced and mixed by renowned producer Tony Visconti - fresh off his work with Bowie on "The Next Day", his first studio album in a decade. Visconti's prowess at the board seamlessly mixes here with Capsula's wild, energetic, and psychedelic garage rock rawness.
Visconti remarked, "Capsula is a serious rock trio, possessed of great musicianship with songs destined to be evergreens."
In 2016 they recorded "Santa Rosa" heavily influenced by Surrealism, The Cramps, Dead Kennedys, Science fiction.
