After the debut in 2016, with the EP “Thin Ice Dance Floor“, CAN CUN arrive to 2017 with news. While the remaining compositions of a coming first long-duration are gaining body in studio, “Claire Witch” anticipates a clear evolution in the sound of the trio of Vila Real: with a well defined melodic line, supported by a dreamy harmony, Bruno André Azevedo, Bruno Coelho and Jorge Simões once again show the delicacy of their dream pop, assuming in their songs a changing and unpredictable nature.

Throughout the verses of this new single, recorded at AMP Studio in Viana do Castelo, and produced by Paulo Miranda, we feel the levitation in an orbit that subtly recalls us to imagined populated by a certain psychedelic nostalgia. While the new work does not see the light of day, we continue to travel in this crystal ball, hypnotized by the CAN CUN’s magic synthesizers and the video signed by José Paulo Santos, with Carla Guerra, Hugo Vilela, Inês César, Marta Fernandes and Raquel Azevedo.

Sailormoon” is stored in the selective memory of who composed it and who heard it. He usually closes the concerts of Les Crazy Coconuts and leaves a chorus to echo.

VRUUMM is a project that goes through rhythms, colliding elements that go from reggae to jazz in an always inventive way. In partnership with producer Guilherme Kastrup, one of those responsible for the recent classic “A Mulher do Fim do Mundo” by Elza Soares, the collective presents the unprecedented RAGGAVRUUMM.

It is little more than five minutes in which all elements of the composition spread smoothly, detailing different textures, melodies and instrumental formulas. Driven by the juicy bass line and drums, each instrument in the track serves as a stimulus for a new chapter within the song, expressed versatility until the last moment. A misty sound, deliciously lysergic, like a decelerated version of the sound produced by the collective Bixiga 70.

Of all the songs presented by Ale Sater in Japão, “Volte Pra Casa” is perhaps the one that best reflects the nostalgic essence and memories of the childhood that supply the record. Composed of muffled arrangements of guitars , Violins and dirty noises, Sater sings about the need to return, creating a subtle dialogue with other compositions of the disc.

This same theme of temporality ends up being reflected in the way black and white images dictate the song’s clip. As the passers-by follow their course, the character played by director Bruno Alves goes in the opposite direction, lonely. The video was produced by Muto, a collective responsible for the production of the recent “Falo“, a clip from the group Carne Doce, and the delicate “Criança“, part of the last studio album by Terno Rei, “Essa Noite Bateu Como Um Sonho“.
