Vaiapraia e as Rainhas do Baile are a punk trio committed to creating poetic images through sincere and immediate pop songs. Their debut album 1755 (Spring Toast Records, 2016) is the result of an in-band symbiosis that deserved a sold-out release party in Galeria Zé dos Bois and was featured in publications such as Público, Time Out and Blitz.
If on one hand, this is a kind of music that calls to action and awakens us, on the other hand it takes us on the errant path of desire. Besides the explicit and honest lyrics that some align with the musical tendency called queercore, the trio’s work goes beyond this category by adopting all of the energy from garage rock and at the same time from the bubble gum pop. Their live appearances are special occasions in which these themes (and the stories they carry) gather a new life. They’ve shared the stage with bands like Trash Kit, Peach Kelli Pop and Feels and played in festivals like Barreiro Rocks, Serralves em Festa and Vodafone Mexefest.
