Boogarins Fernando Dino Almeida and Benke Ferraz began playing music together as teenagers in the central Brazilian city of Goinia creating psychedelic pop in their parents gardens, filtering their countrys rich musical history through a very modern lens. By the time the groups home-recorded debut LP, As Plantas Que Curam (2013), was released worldwide, the band had recruited a proper rhythm section and were developing a name around Goinia. Soon after, the group was booking regular gigs in So Paulo and across the country.Sombrou Dvida, the bands fourth full-length release, is a question. A play on words in Boogarins native Brazilian Portuguese. Its a contraction of Sombra ou Dvida, the title track of the album, which translates as Shadow or Doubt. There might seem to be a darkness to the question, given that both choices arent exactly cheery. Yet, Dino, the smiling, Afro-donned singer of the group tells us that shadow refers to a feeling related to your comfort zone, whereas doubt is the uncertainty that hits people and leads them to follow their instincts.Boogarins own instincts led them to continue elaborating on the dark themes of 2017s surprise-drop L Vem a Morte (Here Comes Death) in a rented house in Texas. The quartet completed several additional tracks before relocating their efforts to a nearby recording studio for multiple sessions with engineer Tim Gerron and producer Gordon Zacharias over the ensuing 2 years, alongside several North American and European tours.For fans of previous works by the band, Fernando Almeidas songwriting and soaring vocals guide Sombrou Dvida in a way thats reminiscent of the Latin Grammy-nominated second album Manual, which was a portrait of a live band exploring the professional recording studio for the first time. The new 10-song set builds on this premise while retaining many of the home-recorded electronic elements of L Vem a Morte.The use of a large, tuned live room at Austins Space Recording Studio allowed Boogarins to include the bold sound of their live performances heavy rock guitar from Benke Ferraz (also in the producer role) colliding with experimental synth noise and bass undercurrents from Raphael Vaz, all driven by the incredibly dynamic and effulgent drummer Ynai Benthroldo.We didnt want to write songs telling people what to do, but instead help them find their own thing. So, there are more questions in the album than answers Dino adds. In these days of uncertainty, perhaps theres some comfort to be found by remaining in the shadows.
