: Born in Portugal
and the daughter of Portuguese parents,
Andreia Araújo is a girl who is dedicated
to all things that a girl usually does:
cars and dolls. Musically, Andreia is expressed
through the alter ego Solange Palmeira,
exploring electronic sounds, mixing them
with sad and childish melodies.
Her songs don't have a temporal or rhythm
pattern, but they electronically rely heavily
in endless delays, feedbacks and layers
of distortion. As if she puts a clean and
simple song into a melting pot full of impurities
and noise sounds.
Sadness is an ever-present in any of her
songs. Which, in fact, makes sense. Not
that she is not able to compose when things
go well, but erverytime she busts into sorrow
she searches music, and it is through that
she reaches peace.
After his debut Ep "Marinheiro"
released in 2010 by MPD (and therefore also
available for free download), it is time
to "Alface", a set of four subjects,
four stages, four times, four stories with
an unhappy ending.
