Experience and experimentalism. Searching to create a unique, personal music, original members, Alcides (guitar) and Henrique (bass) team up with Lorena (violin) and latter on, with Rogerio (synths, programming and guitar), Marcelo (drums) and Ju Orange (vocal) to create what ampslina is now.

Biography

Formed in Recife ten years ago, by a group of friends in order to perform unpretentiously. After a break, the band restarted the project in 2005, under new formation and proposes.

Experience and experimentalism. Searching to create a unique, personal music, original members, Alcides (guitar) and Henrique (bass) team up with Lorena (violin) and latter on, with Rogério (synths, programming and guitar), Marcelo (drums) and Ju Orange (vocal) to create what ampslina is now.

Their new sound is dense, with harmonic confluence between violin and guitar, sweet voices, strong rhythms and electronic effects. After the gap, they feel themselves more mature and musically sensitive, this could be naturally perceived through lyrics and melodies of their new songs.

In September 2007, A&L became part of midsummer madness' cast. The "Curva e Linha" EP was released trough the label’s site in November. Closing 2007, A&L became the only South American band among the "Best 2007 Downloads" on the British INDIE MP3 site, and got their EP air played in New Jersey (EUA).

In 2008, they recorded a version of Beatles' "Good Night" for a 40 year commemorative tribute to the White Album. This compilation is a project of Brazilian journalist Marcelo Froes.

Early this year the band concentrated in their live performance. Since, they played in college concerts, small pub gigs, clubs, medium space venues and city festivals, like the Garanhuns´s Winter Festival (FIG) and now the Fortaleza´s Music Fair.

In 2009, ampslina released their second EP through the midsummer madness label intitled Insone.

Breakdown
letra: Lorena Arouche
música: Rogério Lins


Breakdown, Breakdown... Electronic Breakdown, Breakdown
How come I feel so good?

Trying to face life
I wanned to feel so, feel so good
Trying to fix life
I wanned to feel so, feel so...

Breakdown, Breakdown... Electronic Breakdown, Breakdown
How come I feel so good?

Trying to face life
I wanned to feel so, feel so good
Trying to fix life
I wanned to feel so, feel so...
Wanned to feel so ... cool...

Another break up
Can´t you smell that?
Preview that?
Another break up
Won´t you think of?
Renewal...
Breakout...

Breakdown, Breakdown... Electronic Breakdown, Breakdown
How come I feel so good?

Trying to face life
I wanned to feel so, feel so good
Trying to fix life
I wanned to feel so, feel so...

Didn´t know how...
Electronic Breakdown (2x)

Breakdown, Breakdown... Electronic Breakdown, Breakdown
How come I feel so good?

Insone
letra :Lorena
musica Rogério

À sombra do abismo, a noite adormece
Imenso indizível , ecoam silêncios em órbita

Jaz teu nome
Meu lamento

A brisa congela, receios ferventes
Afagos à parte, se partem retalhos em (de) memória

Jaz teu nome
Meu maior lamento

Refrão:
O despertar... nunca se esquece
O despertar ... nunca se ausenta

(Rompantes excusos, precisos momentos
As brumas da hora, decoram meu desasossego)

Traz teu nome
Meu maior tormento

vela

Written By: alcides vespa

Vela

Vê lá
De longe, longe, longe , sonho longe..
Vela acesa

Queimei a mão
Bem perto, perto, perto, perto ....
Protegi a chama

Cera pingando no peito
Confio e tu sopras haaa...

Entende porque
a luz , luz, luz, luz ...
Não te acompanha

Me vê
além, além, além , além...
Do que arde.

O fogo bate , sal na carne
Confio e dar-me as costas
Confio e dar-me as costas haaa...

de-humanize

De-Humanize
lyrics/music: Rogerio Lins

I'm in a bathtub
Or in a greenhouse?
Misleads are cumbersome
Heading to freakout

Na fina linha entre seus passos
Havia, claro , todo descompasso

Wanna know how you manege to do it
nao sei mais por quanto tempo pode simular
Awkward , greek-thought , machine lifestyle
tao distante de nos... Aonde quer chegar?

I'm working inside
And feeling casted out
Default statements
Reaching to meltdown

Na fina linha entre seus passos
Havia, claro , todo descompasso

Wanna know how you manege to do it
nao sei mais por quanto tempo pode simular
Awkward , greek-thought , machine lifestyle
tao distante de nos... É onde quer chegar?

azuis e carmins/ocaso infindo

Written By: alcides/henrique/lorena

Azuis e Carmins
Letra: Alcides Vespa
Musica: Alcides/Henrique Vespasiano

Manter sem cor
Mais do que sentir
Coisa de fazer
Se for, Basta-nos?

Passar sem ver
Voraz olhar do tempo
Coisa do invisível
Se for, Basta-me!

Dias azuis se foram
Noites carmins desbotam
Em novos dias cinzas...
Cinzas...

Sem céu, nem luz , nem cor
A cada minuto infinito a dois

OCASO INFINDO
Poema: Lorena Arouche

Escravo do acaso comum de dois,
Do presente cego do porvir,
Da inocência embalsamada e embebida,
Da careta do ego que ri.

A dispersão fragmentada dos ‘eus’
No ocaso penumbral de um eclipse
Como encontros, que se encontram, sempre aos fins
Num pleonasmo vicioso...
