Rio de Janeiro-based musician and producer Thiago Nassif has shared his new single ‘Plástico’ from his upcoming album Mente to be released July 3rd via Gearbox Records. 

“Plástico” gives context to the interdisciplinary alternative scene of Rio De Janeiro as well as Thiago’s vocation as visual artist as well as musician. Arhythmic guitars and sporadically timed synth patterns accompany Thiago’s part-spoken, part-sung Portuguese vocals, which are harmonised by Laura Wrona and experimental artist Negro Leo. Claudio Brito on atabaque and timbau and Vinicius Cantuaria on drums are a Brazilian reminder of this music’s origin. 

The broken up guitar and spoken verse are reminiscent of a Baxter Dury record but with a chilled southern American feel. Throw in the female led chorus and you have a very cool sounding track.
