Quando é dado o play na página do soundcloud do Moiss, banda da Indonésia é basicamente um tapa na orelha convidado você a retornar aos 90´s.
Guitarradas, vocalização desleixadamente preguiçosa e aquele elixir nostálgico vem a tona. Não que os caras soem exatamente como um Dinosaur Jr ou similar, ao contrário, eles tem um pézinho nos dias atuais, mas é inegável que o combustível do Moiss é sim os anos noventa.
E qual o problema? O TBTCI não vê nenhum, e se por ventura você discordar, o problema é seu, não meu.
Vida longa ao Moiss.
