Los Blancos

Los Blancos

Los Blancos are the embodiment of the quiet confidence that underpins the Alt/Pop scene growing rapidly in Carmarthenshire, South West Wales. There is no compromise to Los Blancos’s sound, they are unashamedly creatively open, with songs bursting with the drunken passion and abandonment of The Replacements and Mac Demaco’s playful joy – the joy of creating within the four walls of the rehearsal space!

Lloyd a Dom James

Music has been a big part of Lloyd and Dom’s lives. The couple met in 2017 when Dom reached out to Lloyd and offered to work together on music. They’ve been great friends since. As well as music, the Welsh language has continued to be a big part of their lives since they attended Ysgol Glantaf and Ysgol Gyfun Gwynllyw, where they learned the language.

Recently, with the great help of Don (Donald), producer, sound engineer and a great friend of Dom and Lloyd, they have been working to create a variety of Welsh rap songs in an effort to bring an underrepresented genre to life. The first single, ‘Who’s Calling?’ has recently been released.
