Force of the Wind


Not even sort of Brazilian, this trio is from Minsk, of all places, if you’d like to stump your roommate. Much of this is sung in Russian, so the layers of displacement are deep. Kate NV sings in Russian, Sessa sings in Portuguese, and the rest is main band member Alex Chumak, who has a gentle and high head voice. The music is tricked out with strings and wah-wah and really hard-won arrangements.
