Explosions In The Sky 

Hailing from the sultry metropolitan landscape of Austin, TX, Explosions In The Sky are some of the most sincere folks you will ever meet. Aside from being nice guys, they play some of the most passionate, powerful instrumental music you will ever hear. Equal parts romance and tragedy, their beautiful melodies have the tendency to ignite into head-spinning walls of noise. Easily one of the most intense live bands ever, their sound proves to be every bit as triumphant as their name implies.

A long-time fixture of both the American and Brazilian music scenes, either as collaborator with New York guitar legend Yonatan Gat, or as co-founder of São Paulo psych-funk combo Garotas Suecas, Sessa debuts his solo work for the first time in 2019. His songs are sung in Portuguese, with visceral, sexual lyrics in the vein of Caetano Veloso and melodic flourishes not unlike those of Jobim. However, the music gets a deliberate minimalist treatment rarely found in contemporary Brazilian music, more reminiscent of the understated directness of Leonard Cohen or Devendra Banhart's early work.

Sessa's concerts are already the stuff of legend in Brazil. While the songs often deal with subjects such as the sensual body in times of digital excess, the music points to new, more subtle directions for world pop in 2019—a deep, minimalist, almost insinuated use of the endlessly rich textures and rhythms that defined the songwriting history of Brazil—one which Sessa now joins as one of the most promising new voices.
