Luisa Mandou um beijo- (2005)

"Luisa mandou um beijo" means "Luisa has sent a kiss" in Portuguese. Lovely Brazilian pop band with female vocals, and a brazilian vibe in their songs, it could be a "Brazilian Chamber Pop" but with more power guitars and energy. Highly recommended!

2.Weep-out man
5.Bauhaus today
6.Desfeito em luz
9.Com um pote de geleia de morango nas maos
11.Hoje, o mar dancou no ceu
