Ermo – July 8th
Ermo is an electronic music duo from Portugal. Their sound has inspired tags such as ‘interventionist’, describing the young duo’s music as pop dipped in a mixture of hip-hop, post-punk grinds and footwork leanings. Truth be told, Ermo strive to see each record as a way of boarding in the next phase for their music.
Ermo started in 2012, when they released their first self-titled EP. That following year, ‘Vem por Aqui’, their first long-feature album, came out on NOS Discos to great critical acclaim, being wildly praised as innovative and ground-breaking.
As audiences grew bigger, they toured Europe and Brazil during the following 2 years, having released a new EP called ‘Amor vezes Quatro’ in 2015.
For the first time in Madeira Island they present their new album, built to surprise and intrigue, it talks about two humans diving through the looking glass. ‘Lo-fi Moda’ works beautifully as a metaphor for vanity, self-validation and narcissism. It’s the first major release for Ermo and their confirmation as moguls of the uncanny.
