Spanish Love Songs are an indie rock/punk band from Los Angeles. They have been playing together since 2014. Spanish Love Songs have been compared to The Menzingers and Red Radio City. They are influenced by Hot Water Music and Jawbreaker. Spanish Love Songs have recorded two albums and Joana, In Five Acts (Jan'18) is the lead single from their second album Schmaltz (March'18). It is a deeply personal song of loss and despair and Dying Scene gave the album a five star rating noting "these sad sack anthems" might just be "2018's first great album".

“So, why’d you have to leave without me?”
