Space Owl with We Melt Chocolate - An Interview

Vamos começar assim, Space Owl do We Melt Chocolate é um dos melhores eps lançados este ano ok?! Acho exagerado!?!? Sim o TBTCI é exagerado, mas e daí?

O quinteto italiano We Melt Chocolate é simplesmente daquelas bandas que você escuta e vira vício. Alguns motivos são bem claros e evidentes; 1: o sedutor e aconchegante ambiente sonoro de que o We Melt Chocolate criou nas quatro delícias sonoras de Space Owl; 2: o vocal de Vanessa de hipnotiza por completo, te obrigando a entrar completamente no mundo de sonhos do We Melt Chocolate.

Se por algum acaso você não esta convencido, faça o seguinte, escute, não vai haver saída.
