Luis Rodríguez was born in March of 1975, and he is a songwriter/guitarist. Since the beginning, he was influenced by bands such as R.E.M., The Smiths, Aztec Camera, Slowdive and Sergio Mendes among others. In the mid 90’s he began to write music and recorded demos with his first band Ritual Ensueño, but they never saw the light of day. However, Who’s To Blame (aka Downfall) was recorded in 2008 with his current band Resplandor. It was released on the acclaimed album Pleamar.
In 2010, Luis decided to bring alive all his musical influences in The Spiracles, his own personal project. Now, under Saint Marie Records, The Spiracles’ first release Fireflies has received great reviews that will be followed by an EP this summer and a full length by the end of the year.
