Galaxia Tropicalia (CD)
April 13, 2010
In 2009, a European group with a danceable sound took America by storm. The lyrics were romantic, the synthesizers were bright, and the guitars shimmered. The music was at the intersection of sound and style, and once it reached these shores, it was unstoppable. We’re talking about Phoenix, but next year we might be saying the same things about the Lisbon, Portugal-based band, Blasfemea. These four talented Portuguese musicians — Tiago Amaro, Fabio Jevelim (vocals and guitars) & the Lourenço brothers (David and Rui on drums and bass) — are the darlings of the Lisbon pop underground and now they’re ready to make their mark in the United States.
Consider “Maria“, the first single and video from the new Blasfemea album, Galaxia Tropicalia. It’s a swirl of oscillating synth, angular guitar, irresistible beats, pop sweetness and punk attitude — it’s a welcome blast of heat from sunny Portugal and, like all the tracks on Blasfemea’s gripping debut, it’s named after a girl. Blasfemea’s casual confidence is also apparent in every frame of David Francisco and Maria João Carvalho’s vibrant video for “Maria,” too as Blasfemea are naturals in front of the camera — good-looking, sharply-dressed, and looking the part of international pop stars.
