Sonik Youth

Sóniko has a furry little secret

Things are starting to fall into place for Sóniko after two years of dirty work with little compensation. "Don't get me wrong -- it's not that we've made it or anything," Guell says. "We're pretty much in the same place, but at the same time, we can see that this band is doing things seriously and that we've progressed a lot musically."

When asked about the highlight of their brief career, all agree that it was opening for Venezuelan funk band Los Amigos Invisibles before 1,500 people at La Covacha last September. Izaguirre confesses to a serious case of the shakes before going on-stage that night, overwhelmed by a crowd ten times bigger than Sóniko's normal audience. The others laugh at Izaguirre, remembering when bodyguards were needed to get rid of an overly passionate male fan and, minutes later, to almost surgically separate an obsessed female who was trying to kiss Izaguirre. "At some point, we had, like, three different mosh pit areas spinning in front of our eyes, and it was unbelievable," González gushes. "I said, 'We don't have that many friends to create such a situation! They must really like our music!'"
