BAM 2017: Pega Monstro + Sensible Soccers + Gala Drop

  • Music, Pop

Time Out says

Three Portuguese bands play at Plaça Joan Coromines on the second day of the BAM festival for the Portugal Alive night. Opening the show are Pega Monstro (9pm), made up of sisters Julia and Maria Reis, born and raised in Lisbon, with their hybrid between punk-pop and dream-pop; next up it's Sensible Soccers (10.30pm), instrumental music out of the north of Portugal that, although it shows a clear leaning toward pop melodies, it rejects classic structures of verses in favour of progressive structures that advance hypnotically. Closing out the night are Gala Drop (midnight), whose sound flits between contemporary psychedelia, German krautrock and Jamaican dub, and who are one of the most popular independent Portuguese bands in Catalonia.
