I’m with the Brazilian art-rock-psychedelic-experimental-pop band O Branco e o Indio and we released our CD Plantas Renováveis (Renewable Plants) at the end of last year. The singles have been getting airplay on radio stations all over the world such as KEXP FM and KXSF FM (US), Granollers FM and Contrabanda FM (Spain), 6 Towns Radio (England), UAM 94.1 FM (Mexico), Furor 93.5 FM and FM Universidad de La Plata (Argentina), Suba al Aire 88.4 FM (Colombia) and Ness Radio (Morocco), as well as Brazilian radio stations. Here’s the press release and links. If you’d like, I can send the CD, MP3s or you can download for free from Bandcamp (link below). Greetings from Rio! Pedro Serra PRESS RELEASE After venturing through noise experimental sounds as a duo, the Brazilian band from Rio de Janeiro O BRANCO E O INDIO’s guitarrists and vocalists Flavio Abbes (IN-SONE and UAR) and Bruno Rezende (ex-Lucas Santtana, Carne de Segunda and Canastra) decided to call in bassist Roberto Souza (ex-Os Dissidentes) and drummer Pedro Serra (Estranhos Românticos) in 2017 to return to the world of pop: to the melodies and metric, to the good and old tune. But the noise, dissonance, effects and the disturbing but fascinating arrangements linger in their ART-ROCK-PSYCHEDELIC-EXPERIMENTAL-POP style. The’ve harmonized the hemispheres and found their equator line. The band released the album PLANTAS RENOVÁVEIS (Renewable Plants) at the end of 2018, produced by themselves. The cover art is the photo of a piece made with an instrument they developed for this album, the pratotarra. In the 12-original-song CD there’s a sound and rhythm mix that is influenced by Talking Heads, Os Mutantes, Sonic Youth, Clube da Esquina, Ween, Júpiter Maçã, James Chance, Neu! and Devo (among others) and scrambles them all together with the extensive musical experience of the four band members, generating their sensorial and imagetic sound with neo-concrete, existential and surreal lyrics.
