The Name – Older

Posted in Post-Punk, The Name on 09/10/2010 by redo


The Name is a trio from Sorocaba (countryside of state of São Paulo). Usually what comes next are the words: post-punk, brazilian manchester, dance-punk, party music, classic house pianos and stuffs like that. After two tours in several Brazilian stateswith more than fifty gigs only in this first half of the year and gigs thru north america (including the legendary SXSW in Texas), The Name already packs her bags for another three months on the road later this year. So while most of the newest Brazilian bands seem to break his head to understand what is the right way, the guys believe that the future is now. With great new features on the sleeve, the band recently announced a contract with the Label Vigilante ( / semprevigilante), a partner label of the major Deckdisc Records ( – which also brings MIM, Boss In Drama, Homemade Blockbuster, Mickey Gang , Volantes, Colombia’s Coffee and Vivendo do Ócio), by which happened in May, their first release: “Can You Dance Boy / Let Go The Things” which, thanks to an always intense concert schedule and entertaining clip from “Let The Things Go”, put the band highlighted. The icing on the cake of this semester was the first nomination in the VMB’s (brazilian version of MTV VMA) category APOSTA MTV, which demonstrates the excellent wind that passes. The next steps? Play, dance, have fun and, perhaps, between a single and another, a full album in 2011 … But that’s just the beginning.
