FIRST BREATH AFTER COMA
+ The Jacques
Cutting Edge Portugese Music Double Bill.
The members ofFIRSTBREATH AFTER COMAare only 20 years old but have a musical maturity far beyond their years. This is surely thanks to their previous incarnation as a high school band, where they played in moldy garages and smoky clubs, trying out their own versions of classics from bands ranging fromJoy DivisiontoThe DoorsandIggy Popto theVelvet Underground.
By 2012, they’d already won the Fade In Festival battle of the bands ZUS!, and were also selected as FNAC new talent and released their first concept album, "The Misadventures Of Anthony Knivet". In 2016 they have returned with the astonishing new album "Drifter". While many surmise thatFIRSTBREATH AFTER COMAmay be one of the great hopes for Portuguese music, those who have seen them live know they are already a blast.
In a nod to the band's growing popularity and acceptance in mainland EuropeThe Jacques'new song"No Kamikaze"was released exclusively in France in early February and was immediately playlisted on the nation's biggest radio station Oui F.M
Recorded at the legendaryKonk Studios Londonand produced byDan Swift(under the inquisitive eye ofSir Ray Davies)"No Kamikaze"is another sneering, shouting, melodic ode that slowly works it's way around you brain like all great songs have a habit of doing. It is accompanied by a truly original animated film, directed byCallum Scott Dyson.
The Jacquescontinue to evolve into something of their own making - at one turn dark, brooding and unfathomable - the next an exuberant buzz of melody, harsh guitars and scathing words.
2017 saw the band release only one song - the critically acclaimed Eleanor Ring Me - and play live shows in Amsterdam, Hamburg, Paris, Brussels, Austin, NYC, London and many others along the way. Their last show of the year was headlining Transmusicale festival in Rennes, France in front of 3500, broadcastlive on French TV channel Culturebox.
