Fumaça Preta bring together elements of Tropicália, psychedelic rock, fuzz funk, musique concrete, acid house, radiophonic electronics, hair metal, voodoo and African, Brazilian and Latin rhythms.
With vocals whispered, ranted and screamed in Portuguese, sounds lazered across time, and tropical rhythms and fuzz guitars fighting for supremacy, this band never delivers what you expect.
Fumaça Preta (pronounced Foomassa Pretta) is Portuguese for “Black Smoke”, a phrase that was shouted during the recording of their first 45: The band’s vintage analogue tape machine malfunctioned filling the studio with Fumaça Preta. The band survived and the name stuck.
After producing two critically acclaimed 45s released on their own “Music With Soul” label, Fumaça Preta recorded their debut album which was released by Soundway Records. All musical boundaries collapsed during recording as the band drew upon their vast and varied array of influences. Live, Fumaça Preta swerve in and out of endless musical avenues but never lose the rock solid heavy psychedelic groove that drives them.
Fumaça Preta are based in Brighton, London and Amsterdam. A follow up to their critically acclaimed debut will hit the streets in spring 2016.
Fumaça Preta is supported by Cherry Bandora.
