The potion folk of Coppermine

Coppermine arrive from the mining basin of Riotintowith dirty and worn-out boots. Their serene sound with a wink to more classical American folk breaks at any moment to remind us of their nonconformity and love for dirty and raw sounds. Elegant, at moments abated and always impetuous, this project sets off towards a hard, rebel world with a unique mix of colours.


They recorded I miss your heart themselves, taking care of all the details so that everything fits in its spot; it’s folk art, acoustics, bandurrias, trumpets, everything subordinated under the deep voice of Félix Copperman. Personal songs, sometimes minimalist, always simple, personal, rich in texture and brilliant in their performance. Only nine songs, different but complimentary, that make a lucid and coherent disc. After having participated in several competitions (Diesel Next Rock Star, Diesel Only The Brave…), they won the Desencaja 2014 in the celebrated final of the last edition of the festival Monkey Week. They recorded their particular version of Till the Cows Come Home by The Church for BajounCieloPrehistórico (in homage to the Australian band) and now they present their first album I miss your hart.


Maybe because of the atmosphere that surrounds them, maybe because of their musical skilfulness – Coppermine make a sort of country western, stuffed with those murder ballads that would delight the screenplay writers of True Detective and rock explosions that would make the insides of the earth reverberate.

You really shouldn’t miss their live show – here we have a few dates: 11th of September in the Zaidin Rock Granada and 11th of October in the Monkey Week, El Puerto Santa María.
