Víctor Ramírez (Valencia, 1991) realized from a very early age that he wanted to devote his life to music.
His eagerness to better himself led the proactive songwriter to become one of the most promising and inspired musicians in Spain’s current music scene.
In March 2015, Ramírez released his first solo album “Book Of Youth” (Demian Records, 2015), a direct and very personal record where Ramírez explores his obsessions —East River Pipe, the Farrelly brothers and John Cassavetes leading the list— unpretentiously and with great simplicity.
In January 2016, Ramírez supported Jacco Gardner on his Spanish tour and he teamed up with Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star) to record two new singles — Hazel Love and “Suddenly Sunshine” — for his second album. The latter is Ramirez’s take on seminal American songwriter Marc Jonson’s original composition. Jonson loved the result and agreed to Ramirez’s double proposal: to produce his new record and to embark on a Spanish summer tour to perform his first album “Years” (Vanguard Records, 1972) live for the first time.
In May 2016, Ramírez traveled to New Jersey to record his new album “Young Is The New Old”.
Upon his return from the US in June 2016, Ramírez embarked on a Spanish summer tour with Marc Jonson alternated with his own shows as Ramirez Exposure. His performance at FIB Benicàssim Festival 2016 received rave reviews.
“Young Is The New Old” is a unique pop gem produced and mixed by Ken Stringfellow and Marc Jonson, mastered by Joe Lambert (Deerhunter, Animal Collective, etc.). It features collaborations by Television’s Richard Lloyd and Brian Young (The Jesus And Mary Chain, Fountains Of Wayne). The artwork is by German artist Angela Dalinger. It was released in Spain on April 22 (RSD), distributed by Munster Records.
The Heartbreak Kid, first single off “Young Is The New Old” was premiered by The Line Of Best Fit: “The Heartbreak Kid” – an upbeat, sun-soaked cut that nods to the blue-eyed soul greats and speaks of “fantasizing with the aliens of Mulholland Drive” – drops ahead of Young is the New Old, Ramírez’ second album.
