La Burca from Bauru in Brazil is the alt-indie duo of Amanda (Vocal / Guitar) and Lucas (Drums).
La Burca have a stark sound which sears across the brain like a branding iron as the vocals flash like a swooping bird of prey. There is a terrifying anxiety that spills out of the speakers wrapping up the listener in the wrestle of conundrums. The angst riven sounds piercing the soul are apposite constructs that leave the audience reaching for the Valium as La Burca extrapolate relevant concerns inside a the duo who have the ability to express deeply held emotions within a skeletal frame.
Having headed over to Bauru with a population of under 350 000 three times one gets a sense of the frustrations of the local environs, which sit inside the jurisdiction of São Paulo where I am aware many will sit transfixed by the football later this year. Brazil has much to say politically as has been evidenced by the riots this past few months.
It is always a pleasure to write about bands who manage to encapsulate not just local concerns, but global complexities within such scant coat hanger formulations.
Thank you La Burca for doing what you do and long may you keep on doing it.
