Kiss & Fly (404 Colorado St)
About: First started in the small port city of Vitoria, in the southeast of Brazil, it was expected that Zemaria would have an attraction to the horizon of the Atlantic because of their roots. Since 2005 they have toured in Europe annually totaling more than 150 concerts in various cities of the Old Continent. Among them is the Electric Picnic Festival in Dublin, La Fleche D’Or in Paris, Tacheles in Berlin or the Ilios Festival in Norway. In Brazil their connections to clubs and most relevant venues and festivals are astounding. In 2010 Zemaria had a good impact in the brazilian media. The song The Space Ahead was chosen by Levi’s Music as a soundtrack to a video. Shortly after Zemaria was nominated for the Brazilian MTV Awards alongside artists Gui Boratto, Database and Boss n’ Drama. Their latest works, by Sanny Lys (vocals), Marcel Dadalto (synths, guitars and vocals), Spon (bass) and Nego Leo (drums, synth), is the EP Any Distance, distributed worldwilde by PIAS. The EP’s title track features a delightful remix of the french Minitel Rose and the original version of the song “The Space Ahead” is now on the official soundtrack for FIFA 11 by EA Games - along with artists like LCD Soundsystem, Chromeo, MGMT, Caribou and more. Now the band is in it’s new studio, working and preparing to play for the first time in the United States - debuts this March at SXSW and they will follow it with a tour across the country. If they come through your town, it’s recommended not to miss the chance to see them on stage.
