Urso Bardo is an instrumental band formed in Lisbon in 2014. Their music is deeply rooted around melancholy and longing, two very Portuguese traits, combining slow melodies with distorted and frequently delayed guitars.
With influences ranging from Radiohead to Marc Ribot, the band’s particular blend of melodic rock have made them a favourite within the Lisbon underground music scene.
Their first full-length album, self-titled, was released by Raging Planet in March 2016. The band toured Portugal to promote it throughout 2016 and 2017.
