Los Planetas is a Spanish indie rock group from the city of Granada which started out in the second half of the 1990s and continue now through the 2000s. The group's first hit was "Qué puedo hacer" from their album "Super 8", although they had previously had some success with various demos on a contest run by Spanish national public radio station Radio 3.
After "Super 8" the group produced albums which caught on quickly in the Spanish indie scene, including "Pop", "Una semana en el motor de un autobús", "Unidad de Desplazamiento", "Encuentro con entidades" and "Los Planetas contra la ley la gravedad".
They have released two compilation albums: one including all of their singles and EPs in 1999, "Canciones para una orquesta química", and a greatest hits album in 2009, "Principios básicos de astronomía".
Los Planetas are strongly influenced by English-language rock bands such as Joy Division and early-period Mercury Rev and are considered to be a key reference point in the world of Spanish indie.
A notable influence from flamenco music is being shown in their 2007 work
