“Deliriously inventive.” CLASH MAGAZINE
“One of 2016’s biggest surprises.” INDIE SHUFFLE
“Hugely talented.” BBC 6 Music

The cult of Gizmo Varillas continues to grow with UK and US tastemakers at BBC 6 Music and KRCW coming across and championing someone they see as a major new emerging talent. Racking up critical acclaim across Daytrotter, CLASH Magazine, Indie Shuffle and Uncut amongst others, supporting Jack Savoretti on his European tour as well as his own sold-out show at Ronnie Scott’s, Gizmo consolidates one of the breakthroughs of the year with an official Yoko Ono-approved new track ‘No War’.

The fourth release from Gizmo, following on from his debut EP ‘El Dorado’ contains one of the select number of samples of The Beatles’ John Lennon’s ever cleared by his estate and is one of the notably few reactionary tracks confronting the current political climate. Specifically identifying the American president Donald Trump’s alleged wall building and the general sense of isolationism growing across both sides of the Atlantic, Gizmo softly calls for reason and peace, echoing the sentiments of the legendary Beatle.

Continuing his unique combination of folk tinged with south American tropicalia, ‘No War’ conjures the ethereal harmonies and melodies of the likes of Fleet Foxes and Grizzly Bear, whilst stamping his subtle Latin influence across it. An intoxicating sound as timeless as it is genuinely exciting – Gizmo has played every instrument, arranged and produced every record he’s released. Urgent, bold and inventive, ‘No War’ continues to mark Gizmo as a cult gem of a star in waiting.
