PEGA MONSTRO (Upset The Rhythm, PT)
Pega Monstro is the name for sisters Maria (vocals and guitar) and Julia (drums and back vocals). An unashamed rock duo, their second album entitled “Alfarroba” is released on the renowned label, Upset The Rhythm (John Maus, Future Islands, Deerhoof, No Age). Their self-titled 2012 debut offered a powerful set of songs, in which (according to one gusghing review) “the melodies slayed, the lyrics conquered and the attitude made us feel, righteously so, that we were facing [sic] the best rock album ever released in Portugal.” Goodness.
Pega Monstro are afiliated to Cafetra Records, a label and promoter that nurtures some of the most exciting music made by youngsters born and bred in Lisbon; from highly original urban electronica producers to singer songwriter acts. Bandcamp
