BLAME IT ON RIO!
Brazilian post-punks HERZEGOVINA unleash their debut album at the end of the month.
Formed in the hills above Rio de Janeiro, the trio of Rafael Crespo (guitar/vocals), Marcello Fernandes (bass) and Mario Mamede (drums) released their debut EP 5AM in 2016, followed by another EP Last Turn two years later.
Recorded during 2019, Emergency ploughs a deeply nostalgic furrow, their icy guitars and throbbing bass effortlessly recalling the early 80s, long overcoat, proto-gothic sounds of The Chameleons, The Sound, Luddites, early Sisters Of Mercy etc.
Emergency is available now through Mandinga Records on yellow vinyl and download.
