When I think of Brazilian music I think sand, sun, percussion and lots of…hmm, I’ll stop there. Thankfully Team.Radio is here to smash any stereotypes I’ve dreamed up with their new EP ‘Summertime’. The Brazilian five-piece worked with mastering engineer Roger Seibel (Death Cab for Cutie, Built To Spill, Cat Power) on their latest offering and its worth a listen.

‘French Doll’ is the most straightforward song of the five, it’s the most poppy and accessible. Marina Silva’s vocals are super sweet and dreamy against the retro synth breaks and clean guitars. I could’ve done without the backup vocals and some extra ridiculous reverb on the keyboards but that’s just me!
