Whether you call it Tropical New Wave or Urban Brazilian Disco – it’s definitely some some brand new rhythms Da Cruz from Bern, Switzerland, are coming up with on their 4th release „Disco e Progresso“.
Nobody will want to miss Brazil in 2014! The same goes for Da Cruz. In April 2014 they will release two new albums. One “bright”, one “dark”. “This is the only way to adequately reflect what is going on in Brazil at the moment”, says Mariana Da Cruz, the charismatic singer of the Band. “On one Album you will find the easy-going side of Brazil, on the other you will find the soundtrack to a riot.“
Considering their confidence in pushing musical boundaries forward you’d probably locate Da Cruz anywhere close to M.I.A. or Skip & Die. On „Disco e Progresso“ this four-piece band miraculously succeeds in creating some highly contemporary yet classical, deeply urban and open-minded fusion of styles. Never pretentious and always challenging to your everyday routine of listening habits, „Disco e Progresso“ somehow manages to touch your heart and move your hips at the same time.
