After Sao-Paulo, one of the most brazilian exciting musical scene of the moment,lets go to Brasilia now, the cult-city built by Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa to discover LUCY AND THE POPSONICS. That duo, united in life as on scene, joined together with a bass, electric guitar and a laptop, had probably produced the most fun, Fresh and exciting album from the Lula’s country. "A Fábula (ou a Farsa?) de Dois Eletropandas" ‘ s album released on Monstro Discos (one of the most important independent Brazilian label) in 2007 has been rated as one of the best promising act of the new Brazilian scene by the media. Folha de Sao Paulo, Vogue, Rolling Stone, MTV have been immediately seduced by the Electro-punk music of that sexy duo of Brasilia offering at the same time, the possibillity for the band to tour in the big festivals. They made that mix of nervous rock striked of major chords, with a linear but powerful bass on an Electro-pop base coming back to the roots (Kraftwerk, Devo).This album,leaded by the spontaneous Young and mischievous Fernanda, offers in 40 minutes,an accelerated drive in the complex avenues of the UFO-City. In 2007 and 2008, Lucy and the Popsonics played a lot in Brazil and worldwide with artists like Devo, Lilly Allen, The Rapture, Tokyo Police Club, CSS, Datarock, Diplo, Potion, Kasabian, Black Lips, Les Corps Mince Dês Françoise, Vivian Girls, Battant. They also been touring in the USA (South By Southwest), Middle-West and East Coast (Knitting Factory/NYC), then in Europe, with very good feedback of the audience in Germany, Spain, France (I.D.E.A.L Festival) and Portugal (Fade In Festival). Picked out in 2008 by Nacopajaz, and seen at PopMontréal Festival where they really impressed, they’ve been considered by the influential VOIR magazine like one of the biggest revelation of the festival, they’ve been also touring France with Big festival like « Printemps de Bourges » « Festival les Femmes s’en mêlent » where the audience verified their incredible energy on scene. For 2010, they just recorded the new album with one of the biggest Pop producers in Brazil, John Ulhoa. He´s part of the most important Pop brazilian band of the last 20 years, Pato Fu.
