They are one of the most interesting rock bands in Portugal. Galgo are made up by four members: Miguel Figueiredo (guitarist), Alexandre Moniz (guitarist), João Figueiras (bass player) and Joana Baptista (drummer). In the beginning, they were influenced by bands like Arctic Monkeys or The Strokes, having released their first EP in 2015. In 2016, they released their debut album, “Pensar Faz Emagrecer”. Here, we felt the influence of some bands like the Portuguese PAUS or the American band Battles. They kept on deepening their own language and that became more evident in “Quebra Nuvens” (Breaking Clouds), the album they released in 2018. The album’s name is a sort of description of what we hear in its songs: something harsh, sometimes tribal but also somewhat atmospheric. Songs like “Banho Quente” and “Tira-Teimas” are hallmarks of Galgo’s talent. A band to get to know a little better on July 19, at the LG Stage by SBSR Radio in Super Bock Super Rock.
