Read More

Textures, colors and movement give visual shape to “Quente” (hot), another powerful track of Ventre.

Some plans are easy to identify, such as the superclose in the eyes or skin, but the cool thing is not to figure out what appears on the screen. The point is to see how the tonalities of the music gain visibility in a subjective as well as effective way.

Aggressive and sensual, the clip was made by Pablo Leal and Alice Turnbull.

Salve Jurema appeared in the small town of São Marcos, in the state of Rio Grande do Sul. The homonymous EP is the first work of the band and presents a sound that passes through several atmospheres, a mystical mix of rock n roll with Brazilian rhythms from different regions of our immense country.

The songs present an identity with spiritual themes and influences of the own nature that intends to open the inner being of each one.

The video of “Imensidão Azul” is a collage of all these references, with special emphasis on the whole maritime dream present in the lyrics of the song, translated graphically into a video produced by Leonardo Frizzo de Lucena.

Baleia: “Volta”

Read More

It is always tricky to put yourself in perspective and contemplate a whole period of change in life when you are going through it. The lyrical-self in “Volta” (comeback) seems to be in this moment, to understand causes and consequences with verbs in the past and future to explain its present condition, the change itself.

The music video, directed by Kayhan Lannes Ozmen and Vicente Tigre, features actor Igor Angelkorte as the character who, in the midst of his journey through unknown territory, has the chance to witness in the third person a ritual that surrounds himself with sound and the presence of the sextet “Baleia“.
With an art direction that takes on the theatrical tone present on the album, the camera seeks the frontality of the action as if it were also spectator of that narrative.

The spectacular tone, especially in the visual, remains unchanged. The clip serves as a preview of the “Atlas” album release.

“Volta” is a highly percussive song, marked by the strong interplay between drums, bass and guitar, which form a base as crooked as it is propulsive – in it, the voices of the brothers Sofia and Gabriel Vaz slip through thunderous orchestrations of violins. The music is gaining intensity both in the lyrics and in the arrangement, culminating in a beautiful climax, filled with voices and stringed instruments.

The new album was produced by Bruno Giorgi, who had his work with singer Lenine nominated for the Latin Grammy in 2013 and 2015.

Supercolisor: “Sim”

Read More

A clip of “a band playing in the studio with white background” is never enough, and Supercolisor knows that well.

The production, made by Studio Bonk!, inserts the group in this scenario to be able to play with camera movements and, mainly, insertions of animation in frame, as if the context were a “blank screen” for the drawings to appear and the music flow at the right time.

Beautiful, especially because you know how to put the video according to the track, since it is from her that the colors seem to appear.
