New York shows confirmed for Nov/Dec
Callaz, the artistic moniker of Portuguese visual artist and designer Maria Soromenho, has confirmed the February 2020 release of her debut, self-titled album. Produced by Adriano Cintra the ten original songs on the album, at times vulnerable and playful, are a beguiling and imaginative fusion of electronic pop and indie rock featuring Callaz’s unique aesthetic sense, informed by her preference for work guided by the DIY philosophy.
The video for the album’s first single “What Would Rimbaud Do?” is out today. Callaz will visit New York City in December for several shows at Bowery Electric, Berlin and more. (see below for details, additional shows TBD)
Callaz’s first EP, 2017’s Beer, Dog Shit & Chanel N°5, a collection of 5 tracks produced by Filipe Paes, was noted for its seemingly sunny scenario where peaks of anxiety, gloomy memories and stormy sensations sometimes broke through, all under a retro filter.
A year after her debut, Callaz released her second EP, Gaslight, produced by Primeira Dama and Chinaskee, in which her initial work’s ambitions were fully realized. After performing live more and more Callaz’s continued exploration of experimental pop—as well as echoes of Nico’s melancholy—have come to bear on to make her debut album a more cohesive work. Her songs, now more structured, feature incisive refrains heard in the dancing darkness that her listeners have grown accustomed to.
