Vetusta Morla‘s third studio album is more than any of their previous albums, the son of circumstances. A hero and a victim of their process and context. The band faced its composition in a very short period of time and surrounded by a host of emotional, social and political factors that in recent years almost all have summed up with the word “crisis”. One of those terms that, due to wear and tear, lose their semantic load, making it necessary to search for a substitute in order to move forward, to better describe personal or collective reality. Old Morla has found that alternative in Drift.

La Deriva (The Drift) as an intermediate transit between a “crack” and an arrival point, almost always unknown. La Deriva as a space where changes and transformation are possible, assuming at the same time fears, nostalgia and hope for the time that is approaching. The Drift as family decline, in a relationship, in a community or a country. The Drift as a lack of control with nothing or no one in command, as a change of course, as violence or calm, at the mercy of Nature, chance or certain whims. Drift as an experience that facilitates empathy, identification or the shared feelings of all those who are immersed in it.
