Psychedelic rock band lined-up in 1984 in São Paulo, they started making a reputation in the underground scene in the next year, when they recorded a demo tape with the songs “Outono”, “Dia Eterno”, “Declínio de Maio” and “Reflexos da Noite”. The tape got heavy rotation on alternative radio stations in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.
Building their own sonority by mixing the current tendencies of that time with Floyd/Beatles psychedelia, they rapidly gained attention from audiences and the media. Their concerts, known for their hypnotic atmosphere, became a reference for climatic, spatial sounds.
This debut EP, featuring a shadow-encased psychedelia that managed to attract fans of prog, post-punk and dark/Gothic music, were recorded in 1986. it’s a three-track album released by the legendary label, Wop Bop Discos, now rare on vinyl. It includes the songs, Outono, Tropico and Reflexos da Noite, and has became a classic on the Brazilian psychedelic rock scene, earning a cult reputation.
