about

‘A subversive mix of psychedelia and Brazilian rhythms’ UNCUT

“An album that lives up to the PR hype about links to Os Mutantes…. imaginative, derivative and warped” MOJO

‘An original set that sounds better with every listen’ ★★★★ THE GUARDIAN

‘Tracks constantly change and assume new shapes’ ★★★★ FINANCIAL TIMES

‘A vigorous micro-composite sound, earthy and flecked with gold’ THE WIRE

‘My favourite band from the new generation of Brazil’ GILLES PETERSON, BBC6 MUSIC

+++++

Post-tropicalistas Graveola champion personal transformation, social movements and hope on electric new album.

Graveola’s third album Camaleão Borboleta (Chameleon Butterfly) is a musical pick-me-up with hope at the centre of the message. Fired with socially conscious lyrics concerning the power of the internet, native Brazilian-Indian struggles and issues around marijuana legalisation, Camaleão Borboleta (Chameleon Butterfly) is to be released on 10 July through UK based label Mais Um Discos.

Graveola’s unique brand of alt-pop sees tropicalia, samba, ‘rock Brasileira’ and Brazilian folk rhythms cannibalise international genres to create strange new hybrids they have labelled “psychedelic maracatu”, “shamanic funaná”, “weird salsa”, “schizo-rock-fake-reggae” and “melancholic internet love ballad” – all examples of Graveola’s ‘carnival cannabalism’ approach to making music.

Oddball arrangements recall Os Mutantes in their prime with naïve melodies, a hazy sensibility and Brazilian folk rhythms giving their music a distinctly Brazilian take on indie that ranks them as torchbearers of the new alt-tropical movement in South America, alongside acts such like Colombia’s Meridian Brothers and Argentina’s Juana Molina.
