Brazil’s Boogarins quickly become one of the continent’s foremost composers of psychedelic pop with the release of Manual in 2015. Together with Mombojó, they are the most interesting band in South America right now – at least with our limited European perspective. The group’s new album Sombrou Dúvida (meaning “there was doubt”) sees them all grown up, no longer needing to prove themselves. Opening track “As Chances” weaves in and out of discordant arrangements, and second track “Sombra ou dúvida” is probably the closest they will come to a straight pop song. This is a record that has a lot to offer, and requires at least as many listens as the average Momus album.
