The Gift: a vibrant burst of pop to the Portuguese

In your country are real gods. In fact, to interview in the Portuguese capital is to wait patiently to sign endless autographs for fans of all ages. And yet, it is possible that in Spain his name, The Gift, is still a mystery to many. Everything has a solution. "Spain is a top priority for us," says Miguel and Nuno, 50% of the band.

"We are very snug and motivated in Spain, almost as much as in Portugal, despite the fact that in cultural terms it seems that both countries live their backs to each other." The Gift have a studied plan to make this ignorance comes to an end. At least in part. Explode, his new work (the sixth of his career), is "the ideal album to reach as many people as possible", as they themselves recognize.

A brighter and more accessible album than their previous references and the title reflects, in the words of its authors, an "explosion of color, life and positivity, and the powerful voice of their vocalist, Sonia, is making its way to through addictive melodies of pop-rock peppered with electronic and epic.

Live presentations of The Gift are unpredictable. In his last show in Lisbon Tivoli Theatre took the stage a spectacular lighting system managed organically, which earned him the appellation of "sustainable concert." Furthermore, launched an initiative for the blind could enjoy the concert through a system of audio description.

The next May will be in Spain.
