Brazilian based experimental shoegazers ‘Maquinas’ return with another stunning single this time lifted from their forthcoming full release due to drop in the coming months. ‘zolpidem’ is a moody fuzzy noisy affair with a subtle post rock beginning that leads to an immense build up & on into its emotively explosive finale. The band are made up of Roberto Borges – guitar, Samuel Carvalho – guitar/vocals, Ricardo “Guile” Lins – drums & Allan Dias – bass. We previously featured their earlier self titled release on Primal Radio.
Zolpidem is a hypnotic drug used to aid inducing sleep in individuals with dyssomnia and sleepless nights. After ingestion in 30 minutes if the individual does not lie down, the drug can be a powerful hypnotic that opens the mind to internal hallucinations, creating the sensation of dreaming, even when awake. A lucid dream is where one has the impression of being awake, even though he is sleeping, and everything in that universe is tangible and moldable, but in fact, there is really nothing there, even after being awake such dream experiences appear to be so real.
‘Zolpidem’ also marks a new moment for ‘Maquinas’ with lineup changes. The band are now settled with Samuel Carvalho on guitars and Ricardo “Guile” Lins on drums
