Atalhos | Future Yard

We’re overjoyed to welcome São Paulo duo Atalhos to play live at Future Yard in September. Known for their woozy, neo-psychedelic sound, the pair released their fourth album A Tentação do Fracasso via the Cosa Futuro label in March of this year. The album was mastered by Greg Calbi (Tame Impala, The War on Drugs, Bon Iver) and was produced by Ives Sepúlveda of The Holydrug Couple, whose lilting psychedelia is hinted at in Atalhos’ loose and hazy sound. Already receiving warm reviews, the band have been praised by ROLLING STONE as “A delight to listen to… reminiscent of The War on Drugs”. Support on the night comes from Cothel and Farfisa support.
Tickets on sale now.

An ambitious Brazilian indie rock duo, Atalhos are driven by the passion of vocalist and composer Gabriel Soares and guitarist Conrado Passarelli. In 2019, the duo teamed up with Chilean Ives Sepúlveda (The Holydrug Couple) for the production of a new album, which would ultimately be recorded across three different cities (São Paulo, Santiago de Chile and Buenos Aires). Three years later, these efforts were finally realised in the LP A Tentação do Fracasso.

A work that crosses borders and celebrates the Latin American brotherhood in collaborations, A Tentação do Fracasso blends woozy soundscapes with wistful philosophy, the sunshine-kissed South American sounds and the Spanish-flecked vocals of the Argentine’s El Príncipe Idiota and Delfina Campos (who both guest on the record). Listen closer and you can hear the reverb-rinsed touches of 80s’ Springsteen, the gentle grandiosity of Arcade Fire and the day-dreaming guitar pop of Real Estate.

"like Caetano Veloso channelling The Dukes of Stratosphear…there are strong flavours of 80s neo-psych in their swirling sound, filtered through layers of tropicalia” - Prog Magazine
