Returns the festival, which has become a thermometer of the indie scene in the neighbouring country, and with a triple proposal free in Barcelona and Madrid. The appointment comes in the two cities the same poster: Conan Osíris , Reis da República and Whales will perform this Friday at the plaza Juan Corominas in the Catalan capital, within the BAM (Barcelona Musical Action), and on Saturday, in madrid's sala Shôko, in the area of La Latina.
Comes with halo, star, the eccentric singer-style multicultural, as Osíris already showed a counter-current as the Portuguese representative in the semi-finals of Eurovision. But it was not the court and, therefore, did not qualify for the grand final.
His career, however, had already given what to talk about on the other side of the border since at least two years before, thanks to its amalgam of sound that mixes the pop with the bases scheduled and..., until the echoes of Bollywood. By something Conan, looking scruffy , drew attention two seasons ago with his irreverent album "I Love bowling" ("I love cakes"), in the vein of the king of the "manele" in Romanian, Nicolae Guta .
In regard to Reis da República, this is a band dedicated openly to revitalize progressive rock, in a line "setentera" clear and pieces that tend to a long duration.
Towards the electronic "mid-tempo" leaning Whales, able to refer to Efterklang , Trentemoller or Lulu Rouge , as well as the very Aphex Twin . Such is its conglomerate brand, always the debtor of the sounds with class.
Naturally, there are also other bands in Portugal, where the group independent best known is The Gift, led by Nuno Gonçalves , and that recently, he has worked even with Brian Eno. Another training interesting is Ermo , from Braga, with a formula next to the postulates of Joy Division . And all the while disappears the iconic temple "indie" in Lisbon for excellence, the historic club Sabotage.Updated Date: 20 September 2019, 02:01
