Roxy Music, one of the great icons of contemporary pop
Roxy Music can be proud of a career in which they have experimented with many different styles: rock, pop, disco, glam, soul and touches of original electronica. Their sound was a predecessor of punk, redefined glam, was one of the standard bearers of art rock and was the foundation for other genres, from krautrock to electronica. Their most popular hits remain a benchmark for today’s music: from Love Is The Drug and More Than This, as well as Angel Eyes, Same Old Scene, Avalon and Jealous Guy.

Sónar 2010 is taking place in Barcelona and A Coruña on 17th, 18th and 19th June.
