Pajaro Sunrise biography
Pājaro Sunrise started as a project of Yuri Méndez and Pepe Lopez. Their first and self-titled album, released by Lovemonk Records in November 2006, was recorded, mixed and produced by themselves at their own home. "Pājaro Sunrise" was received very well by the music press, it was released in Japan and South-Korea and distributed worldwide. The band got lots of interest from all over the place and toured around Europe, playing in countries like Germany, The Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Belgium.
Back home they were voted Fnac Talents of the year and one of the three best domestic bands at the Premios de la Noche awards.
The follow-up, "Done/Undone", released in March 2009, was recorded in much the same way as its predecessor, only this time it was more of a band effort, with Pājaro Sunrise consisting of Yuri, Pepe and the newly incorporated Mario Delgado. However, the group disbanded somewhere along the way with Yuri remaining the sole member, and the result is a mixture of some of the band's songs and many of the tracks Yuri had been recording on his own.
Yuri decided to release the album as a double CD, even though the 22 songs could easily go on one disc. In his own words: "'Done' is for everything that was coming to an end, which were many things in my life; 'Undone' is for all the new possibilities that came out of that."
