The Brazilian electro-rock quartet Remove Silence, from Brazil, will be releasing the LP Raw later this year.
A couple of years since last featured and the intervening period of time discovers the quartet with a slightly different feel to their sound. The prog-rock experimentalism has been replaced with a more structured focus in which, in Middle Of Nowhere (from the forthcoming album) at least, tinctures of gothic-rock are blended with electro-indie and a splash of metal to generate a song with power and passion, while also accessibly lighter of touch.
Owl Company, a Brazilian heavy-rock quintet, is planning to release the LP Iris in the latter half of the year.
The newest track to surface from the album, which is also available as a standalone single, Pieces, showcases their compressed heavy riffs which mind the listener of condensed milk with its combinations of depth of flavour and fulsome richness of texture.
The Brazil based trippy-rock quartet King In The Belly released the single Intimate Strangers on the 4th.

The combination of three Brazilians and one Australian enable the quartet to deliver music which has a difference of sound and wide ranging ideas, with Intimate Strangers drawing deeply from the well of ’70s psychedelia.
Though only getting in to gear last year four previous singles and plans for an LP this – evidence of a group of musicians keep to get fully up to speed and a quartet I look forward to hearing more fromm in short order.
Whilst developing their own opportunities around Santa Rita do Sapucaí, where they are based, they are also working with other regional and national bands to bring live music to the area through ‘back yard sessions’ which are in essence mini DIY festivals.
The Black Lodge is a four track EP of ethereal shapes as the electronica folds in to itself like melting wax with a spectral vocal wrapping in to the ears – the vaguely sinister nature of the songs is delivered through both a jagged edge of drum-pad and the menacing bass which give the tracks their darkness.
The first song to be revealed from the EP is the second track – Killer.
