The Brazilian Stoner trio Spread! were introduced in April of last year.
The latest track Sun – finds Spread! in more psychedelic, slower and paradoxically, gloomy mood.
Running for almost seven and a half minutes Sun begins with slowly paced shimmers of guitars, which are joined by one strike bass and drum to set the agenda for the track. As Sun gradually builds in intensity so the material becomes more immersed with psychedelic-melancholia, finding the listener becoming wrapped up in the various channels opened up for exploration.
Spread a stoner rock band from Osasco in Brazil is Cassiano Pereira (Vocals / Guitar), Pedro Karoço (Bass / Backing Vocals) and Francisco Gomes (Drums).
Another brief article by a band with few songs available to hear. Spread challenge the speakers with their blend of power rock and fuzzed guitar, whilst a resounding percussion keeps the walls bouncing and a searing bass keeps it all connected. The vocal is subsumed within the music giving the audience plenty to get their ears around in well formulated tracks.
I can envisage Spread in live performance, where the highly energetic sounds would capture the audience, developing into a moving mass of humanity and it would be that connection between audience and musicians that has the potential to make this a fire-cracker of a band. That isn’t to say that recordings are of lesser quality, but this is music best to enjoy in the company of others.
