Santa Rita was born on a cold and windy day in February 2008 and played their first shows in July 2009. Since then, they kept doing it without stopping. .
They were the opening band for Juliette Lewis at Apolo (Barcelona), played at Primavera Sound, and in festivals all over Spain: Madrid, Mallorca, Santiago de Compostela and up to 50 shows.
En 2010 they recorded their first EP and released it in 2011 together with their first videoclip Close to the Pharmacy.
At the end of the year, the bass player, Eugenia Kiernan, had to leave the band and was replace by the talented Martha Wood.
With the new lineup, Santa Rita recorded at the end of 2012 their first CD / LP, “High on the Seas“, released on Marc 11th 2013 by Aloud Music.
After that, Santa Rita began a tour that brought them to Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Euskadi, Sevilla… Their constant evolution has been obstructed many times: a back injury of the drummer, Laura, legal issues with the name of the band, the departure of Martha (replaced by Armando on bass), just to mention the most important. All this made the band announce its breakup at the beginning of 2016.
