Chill 29 features music from Sinestesia Letárgica, a Brazilian shoegaze/ambient duo formed in 2015 by Nefelibata (voices and synths)and multimedia and multi-instrumental artist Low Rhahn (from Campina Grande/João Pessoa, Paraíba (Brazil). Its the latest in a long list of projects and bands he’s either founded or been a member of since he first started Genes Kamikaze back in 2007.
Whether its this or the post punk mingling Astrocrushing, his work is conveyed through strong influences of surrealism, synesthesia and lethargy as if his vision were covered with blurred clouds, full of shimmering colour intermittently adjusting between blue and lilac. The sounds and aesthetics draws a comparison, i think to the first post UK shoegaze era, when the scene that celebrated itself became supplanted by Britpop eventually; when small but influential shoegaze artists and scenes sprouted from mid 90s Arizona beautiful noise scene to the Bedazzled label on the eastern US coast and Loveliescrushing’s Scott Cortez’s later projects like Star and Astrobrite when he relocated to Chicago.
Low Rhahn is currently busy touring as Astrocrushing and recording new music.
Sinestesia Letárgica’s latest is Saturn released April 21st, 2017. For more info
