Desert didn’t have time to become “Barcelona’s best-kept secret”. With just two songs behind them, their name spread like wildfire around blogs the world over. England, Belgium, the USA, Germany and Canada were talking about the Cocteau Twins, Laurel Halo, Broadcast and Beach House, about songs that sound like a whirlwind of synthesizers and pop melodies.
