SUNFLOWERS (PT)

Tongue twisting, teeth shattering, seizure enduncing psych punk, noise pop stabs all the way from Porto, Portugal – Sunflowers are a heat wave in the cold, static times we live in. With the perfect amounts of confused riffs, slurred lines and feedback insanity, the Portuguese outfit has managed to cleanse the mind and body of all of those who crossed paths with them.

In over 150 shows, they’ve shared the stage with Oh Sees, Moon Duo, Black Lips, Boogarins, La Femme, The Blind Shake, Tomorrow’s Tulips… and have played festivals such as Festival Indigènes (FR), Endless Daze Fest (SA), Inner City Psych Fest (SA), Barreiro Rocks (PT), Festival Paredes de Coura (PT) and Reverence Portugal (PT), among many more.

Their debut album “The Intergalactic Guide to Find the Red Cowboy” was first released in 2016 through the independent Portuguese label O Cão da Garagem and had a second pressing in 2017, through the french label Only Lovers Records.

A European tour was booked for November and December of 2017 to present it, passing through Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Netherlands and more, surprising everyone with the insanity and intensity of their live shows.

In 2018, the band returns with “Castle Spell”, their sophomore LP baring their characteristic meltdown of Larsen-effect-drenched riffs and acid bleached vocals into your stereo. One can say the band is young and restless, but they bring a well thought mutated slab of paranoia filled heavy shredders, while the hazed sunset fades away in the rearview mirror, darkening the desert and filling the air with some energized psych punk auras. “Castle Spell” is a 10- story palace, each of them with its own atmosphere, its gloomy and murderous tenants, all narrated by Carol’s docile voice and Carlos’s intrusive howls.
