Curva e Linha (Midsummer Madness) 2007
Insone (Midsummer Madness) 2009



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.
