Holger - Let 'em Shine Below
Holger hails from Sao Paulo, Brazil although it's not the most obvious thing as they sing in english and it's not exactly like you want to dance the samba so much as jump up and down to this music. Although, my Brazilian friend who tirelessly tried to teach me to samba for a whole year might disagree. There are lots of drum beats and equal parts Latin, Caribbean, and African and straight up indie pop/rock influences. It's the kind of music that has as much a place playing in your car with the windows down, as it does at a bonfire beach party. Frankly, I'm a bit obsessed, and I don't know how I'm going to resist dancing to this while listening on my walk to work. Stream it on soundcloud or buy/stream on bandcamp.
