Old Magic Pallas

Old Magic Pallas, or just OMP, is one of Brazil's brightest lost gems of the glorious '90. They started earlier in this decaded, as a group of five friends from São Paulo, SP, Brazil, bonded by the love of the rising Shoegaze Bands (Ride, Slowdive, Pale Saints and such) and '60 Psychedelic Rock. By 1994, they went to a studio and recorded a demo called Pull My Daisy (if you're wondering, yep, the cover and the 'enjoy!' link right below belong to them), which was greatly received by the public, media and the noise mates, such that one year after, they appeared on Brazilian MTV with a video of the opening song, Stargazer, and right after recorded a split album with Speed Whale and Moonrise, which featured two songs that weren't included at the demo. When they were in the process of recording and creating new music to a full length, they just hauled their activities at about 1998, staying a decade in silence until the announcement of new live appearances, which happened mostly from 2008 to 2010. By 2012, we don't know what to expect from them, since they're not playling live and don't seem to be recording anything, letting a great cult followers (including me) thirsty for news...

About their music itself, as I mentioned before, can be classified by a nostalgic Dream Pop painted with microphony blasts and peppered with oneiric psychedelia, creating swirling soundscapes which are perfect to be enjoyed in a windy autumn afternoon when you're walking on a park when you just want to taste the air in your face.

With so many bad music filling the spotlight and the public ears (specially here in Terra Brasilis), they come as a fresh sweet breeze, whose name and songs must be spreaded around the Cosmos. I hope you enjoy it!

get it!

  2. Conheço sim. Ótimo clipe, por sinal! Adoro por demais todo o trabalho do OMP. Será que vocês tem planos para novas músicas ou shows? :)

  3. Rapaz, é difícil até pra banda tomar café juntos..rs..todos ocupados com família/trampos/viagens. O Fernando, nosso primeiro gtr ta em Londres. Eu me aposentei da batera. O Marco, a Cris e o OSmar estão ainda na ativa, pero no mucho. Mas a gente quer lançar um novo EP com as sobras de estúdio, ensaios e algumas covers ainda.
    Abraço e obrigado pelas gentis palavras!
