You might recognise Brazil’s name from 2014, when they shared their debut track ‘Hide Away’ – an ice cool introduction that was as noirish as it was infectious. After taking the title of that track quite literally and squirrelling themselves away for the past few months, the London trio are back with a new tune and set to properly kick things into gear. ‘Hold Me’ comes packed with attitude, strutting along like Arctic Monkeys in their nocturnal ‘AM’ incarnation. “Seems like you’re living out your dreams/Under covers, it isn’t what it seems,” croons frontman Josh Scarratt as his band swagger behind him. Effortlessly on-point and enthralling.
Brazil play the following dates:
London Old Blue Last (February 14)
London Power Lunches (February 20)
