Read More

“Eu convido todo mundo para a minha festa / Só não convido você por que você não presta” (I invite everyone to my party / I just do not invite you because you’re not worth anything) sings Mallu Magalhães in the samba “Você Não Presta“. Unprecedented, the song paves the way for the singer’s new studio album, the long-awaited “Vem“, a title-winning work full of shows that the singer promotes in the coming months. An extension of the sound produced in “Pitanga“, masterpiece of the singer from São Paulo.

Just like in “Casa Pronta“, a composition delivered to the public in August of last year, Magalhães strolls samba in a good-humored, light manner, detailing verses marked by the complete honesty of the themes. The main difference lies in the strength of this song. A clear exercise of disgust and denial, as a purposeful detachment from confessional romanticism that spreads comfortably within the single that precedes it.

Prana: “Não te dás a Ninguém”

Não Te Dás a Ninguém” advances the arrival of the third album of originals of the Prana, which succeeds “O Amor e Outros Azares“. The theme portrays the antagonism between attraction and fatality, and the band tries to play with often distant concepts, such as rock and electronic: “It’s a metaphor that describes those situations where we see ‘danger’ written everywhere but not We managed not to follow. An arm of iron and silk, of seduction. ”

The musical tension manifests itself in a vibrant, chorus-like sound, with a rhythmic crescent marked by an overactive guitar that finds in the battery, with more electronic tonalities, its energy circuit. “Se não me queres, o que é que queres de mim?” (If you do not want me, what do you want from me?) Expresses all the matter and energy of the music.

The band from São João da Madeira also runs a new universe, new ways of life, in which they seek to unify cinema and music. “Não Te Dás a Ninguém” is accompanied by an illustrative video clip with a neo – notic aesthetic, on the one hand, explores the lighting features, highlighting aspects of the characters and feeding the tension in the viewer, on the other, through an apparent action Arbitrary, has the power to establish the relationship between the characters and their breaks. The letter gives the nickname for this type of aesthetics, looking at a mundane theme of protagonists ruined by fatalism and daily injustice.

The video was produced by Ricardo Leite‘s team, who, among other works, successfully adapted Rui Zink‘s narrative, “A Instalação do Medo” (The Installation of Fear), to the big screen. The short film was awarded by the Academia Portuguesa de Cinema with the Prémio Sophia 2016 and has been exhibited at various film festivals at home and abroad (such as the Berlin Student Film Festival in March and, for these days, the Short Film Corner in Cannes).

Rosemary Baby: “I Can’t Breathe”

Read More

“I can’t breathe” were the last words of Eric Garner, an American brutally killed by New York police in 2014. “I can’t breathe” are therefore the first words of what is the return of Bruno Rosmaninho Aka Rosemary Baby to the original themes.

As a cry of revolt and manifesto against discrimination, the theme of advancement for the new album “Timeless” materializes the need to rewrite a new story.

But instead of war and conflict, Rosemary Baby chooses the hug and, with her dreamy pop, seems to have only one goal: to simplify what the world seems to complicate, to simplify the human relationship.
It all started in 2012, inspired by Ilha do Príncipe, when Bruno Rosmaninho began to write the songs that later that year went from guitar to studio. Things of life, joys or day-to-day sorrows … On November 25 of the same year was released “The First Time“.

Lavoisier: “Opinião”

Read More

“In Nature, nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed.”

If Patrícia Relvas and Roberto Afonso stole the phrase (and the name Lavoisier), it was in the traditional Portuguese songbook that the pair, at the time living in Berlin, made their music. Far from being another group that reinvents the portuguese music tradition, the energy that springs from the duo’s performances takes on a dynamic of its own, discovering a new energy for national music. Joining Patrícia’s voice and Roberto’s electric guitar, the project emerges as a musical therapy, to treat a crisis of Portuguese identity.

In the course, they already have two albums, edited by themselves, which are testimony to this space full of new paradigms and forms in the national music. Lyrics and compositions created from transformed chemistry that is just theirs. A work that tells stories through melodies, acts and common thoughts. There we find dead poets, various unknowns, unattainable flesh, and the energy of an object with its own life. The single “Opinião” (Opinion) is the first entry into this universe.
