Celebrar Aniversarios with Nax - An Interview

Um dos grandes singles lançados neste início de ano certamente veio de não tão longe assim. Nossos hermanos argentinos do Nax conceberam duas pérolas calcadas em um inspirado mix de dreampop, pós punk e shoegaze.

"Celebrar Aniversarios", o single em questão, abre com "Aniversarios" e rapidamente se encerra com "Kria".  A primeira especialmente gazer, a segunda climática e densa. A sensação após audições sequenciais do single é infelizmente, que, precisamos de mais, muito mais, tamanha perfeição das canções.

Entre sonhos e distorções, esperamos urgentemente que o Nax nos brinde com mais, muito mais.
