Nothing original about their name, but I was surprised by the plethora of creative compositional ideas put forth by this young Brazilian five-piece from Porto Alegre. As one might suspect, their style is firmly in the neo-progressive vein, spirited and colorful – especially on the instrumental flights – yet they blend in a laid-back folksy element on many of the tunes that gives them their own character. Singer João Marques is a bit underpowered, in fact on many of the tunes he's quite flat and out of tune, and represents my biggest gripe, with the muddy / distant sound mix being a close second. Still, based on the many bright moments of instrumental fire, I think this is a promising band with a lot of potential, despite their amateurish sound right now. Keep an ear out for these guys in the future.
