Club America is composed by the brothers Andy and Bruno Alves, natives from the “Manchester City” of Brazil, Sorocaba. With Influences that go from synth- pop, indie-rock and post-punk, the duo launched in 2012 with their first single “Believe.” The music video rapidly caught on by being broadcasted on Brazilian music channels such as MTV, PlayTV, MixTV, Woohoo, Music Box TV, VH1 and Canal Brasil. The instant hit gave them recognition on big-name magazines like Rolling Stone Brasil. The duo has performed around 500 shows in their career including international festivals such as SXSW, CMW, VOV Festival, Planeta Terra Festival, Goiânia Noise and Demosul.
After two EP releases, countless performances, commercial campaigns for giants like Coca-Cola in Brazil and being selected as one of the six Brazilian songs for the worldwide launch of Windows 8, Club America felt that nothing could stop them. They immediately began working on their first full-length album, titled “To Get There,” next to Felipe Colencii in Brazil. The 10-track album includes collaboration with American rapper Da Deputy in the song “All the things I’ve done” and it was released at a listening session broadcasted live via streaming by Showlivre.com.
To support their latest album, the band toured in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada performing in local spots like Silverlake Lounge, Boomer’s Bar and The Milk Bar.
