Joana Espadinha first took us to dance and then made us think. In two singles she showed what was coming. She is a singer, author, performer. It’s full body music. It makes songs that cling to us, activate the movement of emotions and the vibration of muscles, from the heart, and invite us both to wiggle our hips and shake us. We could describe Joana Espadinha’s record as a pop album that plunges into the Portuguese music heritage of artists such as Lena d’Água or Gabriela Schaff as she emerges dabbling in artists such as Air, Stereolab, Aimee Man, Feist or French soundtracks and the sensual electronics of the 60s. A record of strong songs expressing a strong, crystalline voice, intelligent and enlightened, emancipated and seductive.
“O Material Tem Sempre Razão” (The material is always right) is a journey of exploration, discovery and affirmation, both in musical and lyric terms. Benjamin stole Joana Espadinha from Jazz and got pop to occupy an increasingly difficult place to reach with quality.
