About this artist

Mishima is a Catalan indie pop band from Barcelona, Spain. Formed in 1999, the band consists of David Carabén, Marc Lloret, Dani Vega, Xavi Caparrós, and Alfons Serra. The group's name refers to Japanese author Yukio Mishima.

Mishima's first two albums, recorded in English were well received by the critics, but their major success came in 2005, with the release of the third album, Trucar a casa. Recollir les fotos. Pagar la multa, in the Catalan language. Their subsequent albums have been in Catalan.

They released their fourth album in 2007. Titled Set tota la vida, it consists of nine stories written and sung by David Carabén. Spanish music magazine Rockdelux called it one of the best Spanish albums of the decade.

In 2010, their fifth album, Ordre i aventura, was released in Barcelona. In 2011, they played at the Palau de la Música Catalana, a concert hall in Barcelona designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
