Portugal Brings The Dream-Punk Sound With Pega Monstro

Julia and Maria Reis are trying to catch the monster with their band Pega Monstro, but their album ‘Alfarroba’ creates a creative monster.

The video below, ‘Não Consegues’ is taken from Pega Monstro’s new full-length album, ‘Alfarroba.’ With Julia on drums and Maria on guitar and keyboard, the band has full gritty sound, late 70s punk. It’s the exact sound that Richie Finestra is looking for in HBO’s Vinyl. The second track Branca gets under your skin and compels you to get up and dance. There is a groove throughout the whole album to where you can visualize Nicolas Winding Refn next film.

Upset! The Rythm describes the Portuguese sisters as having a dream-punk sound.

Alfarroba‘s vinyl is limited to a first pressing of 500 copies.
