A group of highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists led by João Branco Kyron on vocals and keyboards.
With Rita Vian also on vocals and synth, João Moreira on acoustic guitar and synth, Sergue Ra on bass and Antonio Watts on drums. Helena Espvall, formerly of Espers, is the newest member of the band on cello and acoustic guitar. She further augments the enormous pool of talent and experience.
In 2012, the band’s eponymous first album set out their stall, with a collection of cover versions; mainly of classics of the British Acid-Folk period, but also taking in Tropicalia and German Kosmiche. The album was a hit in Portugal and picked up for airplay in the UK on BBC Radio 2 & 6 Music. Their version of Kraftwerk’s Radioactivity was included on DJ Food’s Krafwerk Kover Kollection.
Their second album in 2015, The Beast Shouted Love, carried their influences forward with original songs and cemented a style that is at once traditional, experimental and exotic. In 2016 the band debuted on Ghost Box with a single as part of the label's Other Voices Series.
On their third album, Lisbon’s Beautify Junkyards effortlessly blend their love of English Acid Folk and Brazilian Tropicalia in a collection of songs that conjure up a warm and verdant faerie world.
