The Rasgada Coletiva is the spot to be on Monday nights in Sorocaba, Brasil to hear the latest bands in the growing underground punk and alternative music scene.
Sandwiched between an extensive network of talented musicians in the crowd and surrounded by walls plastered with book page wallpaper and local art, Rasgada Coletiva was the perfect location for grunge duo and couple, Medialunas, to perform.
Hailing from Guaiba in southern Brasil, Liege Milke (drums) and Andrio Maquenzi (guitar and vocals) powered through a set featuring heavy drum progressions balanced with fast paced guitar riffs and major distortion. Songs ‘Rotten Peaches’, and ‘Chunby’, off of their most recent album, ‘Intropologia’, were crowd favorites with their contagious choruses and upbeat tempos that clash with lo-fi distortion and piercing screams from Liege.
Though moments off of Intropologia are reminiscent of Incubus and Dinosaur Jr., the entire album remains gritty, original, and overall really refreshing. Medialunas are definitely a group worth checking out.
