O Terno are a trio from São Paulo that mix rock and psychedelia from the 1960s and 1970s.
They might be also the band who can sing best about matters related to life of young Brazilians who have not reached 30 years yet. Among topics you’ll find in their lyrics are the uncertainties of love, pain, technology, life in the big city and life itself.
Recently, they released their third album, “Melhor do que parece” (“Better Than It Looks”). The record’s sound recalls elements of the past but still with the identity of the band.
“Culpa” was the first single from the album, and it adds soul music to O Terno’s psychedelia. In the lyrics, they sing about someone who feels guilty of something without knowing why.
Maybe a guilt imposed by the environment they live in – guilt for success or failure in life. This feeling may even go beyond the Brazilian culture and applies to different countries around the world.
