Vanessa Bumagny – ‘Cinema Apocalipse’
Hailing from Sao Paulo, musician Vanessa Bumagny released the magnificent album ‘Cinema Apocalipse’ in 2022. It is an art-rock release that you need to hear!
‘Tudo Está Bem’ opens the release to an upbeat and welcoming vibe. We adore the melodic bass, driving rhythm section and intricate instrumentation that all pave the way for Bumagny’s soulful vocals to shine.
‘Cinema Ilusão’ is a stand-out song. We adore the staccato guitars, layered vocals and memorable melodies. The guitar riffs are addictive and make the piece shine further.
‘Fome de Tudo’ draws the listener in and is an addictive song from the get-go. Interestingly, ‘Lady Lazarus’ is taken from a poem by Sylvia Plath, and Bumagny has added new dimensions to the piece by adding superb music to it.
Finally, ‘Eu Vivo No Caos’ closes the release, and it will have the listener reaching for the repeat button.
‘Cinema Apocalipse’ sees collaborations with various excellent musicians, and Rafael Castro has superbly produced it. Bumagny says, “I took my partnership with Luiz Tatit in ‘Quem Ama Sofre’, and I liked the result so much that I decided to keep it for myself, not before negotiating with Rafael, promising to give him another song. I was already looking for a producer to make a new record, and at that moment, I felt I had found it.” Together the team have crafted an album that will stand the test of time.
This is the fourth album by Bumagny. Previously she released the albums ‘De Papel’ (2003), ‘Pétala por Pétala’ (2009), and ‘O Segundo Sexo’ (2014). After hearing ‘Cinema Apocalipse’, we can not wait to check out Bumagny’s back catalogue too.
So make sure you add ‘Cinema Apocalipse’ to your new music playlist this week; you will not be disappointed!
