In November/December of 2003 Gros began recording their second album Radio Islas, in the Gracia district of Barcelona. Using vintage analogue synths, samples of their own voices, found elements from radio and television, and field recordings made in the city of Barcelona - all sequenced together on their old Otari - Gros made an album that was both more melodic than the debut with a more homogenous and detailed production. While "Waves" (Fork Series, 2002) was about travelling and exploring new cities, the follow-up is about feelings of rootlessness, of leaving things behind - but at the same time, a kind of homage to streets and friends in Barcelona.
