Nunca Nadie Pudo Volar by La Casa Azul
Dear Poptastic Readers,
The Spanish artist La Casa Azul has just released their new
single: “Nunca Nadie Pudo Volar” (Nobody Could Ever Fly). It’s the fourth
single from their long-awaited fifth album La
Gran Esfera (The Big Sphere).
La Casa Azul is the stage name of producer Guille Milkyway.
When he started his career, he was too shy to be front man and instead had 5
teenagers acting as the band. It wasn’t a Milli Vanilli situation, though, as
it was announced from the start that it was Guille singing and playing the
songs. With every release, Guille became more confident and the kids were
Most of his back catalogue had a very strong 60s or 70s
influence, and only for this new album he began trying on more current sounds.
In this new single, you can feel the disco influence, but it does sound like a
modern song. The lyrics in Spanish are about a boy who always wanted to fly but
others wouldn’t let him. The metaphor becomes cleared in the video, as it shows

has to run away so he can do it. It’s a bit sad how a long time passed since
Bronski Beat had a music video with almost the same storyline, but it still
feels current. Check out the video here …
The new album by La Casa Azul, La Gran Esfera, still has no release date, but we hope it’s really
soon, as this single left us wanting more! We’ve added “Nunca Nadie Pudo Volar”
to our 2018 Poptastic Confessions Playlist on Spotify. Check it out!
