Feeling a bit camera shy


Mades is an alternative band from Londrina/PR, Brazil. Derived from a work conceived by Mateus Cortegoso, the compositions began in 2009 influenced by national music and alternative rock. Among the references are Los Hermanos, Julian Casablancas, Muse, Copeland, Anberlin and Anchor & Braille. The tunes deal with personal themes, stories and relationships in the duality of the melodies between smooth and aggressive, calm and intense.

These young men have been working hard together since 2014 but the project leading up to the band had the first acoustic tour in 2012. In the following years Mades was part of the Grito Rock in several cities with plugged concerts, a festival with worldwide relevance. Featured gigs in Santa Catarina were also part of the tour, as the Special Los Hermanos.

Mades also played in several festivals with bands like Autoramas. In early 2015 Mades launched ‘How Points A Ball’ featuring Bruno Kayapy from the renowned brazilian band Macaco Bong. Representing Mades, Mateus has shared the stage with artists such as A Banda Mais Bonita da Cidade and Tay Galega. Accumulating acoustic recordings and singles, the launches began with the Baunilha Session, a sequence of live recorded videos. The most outstanding song is the single ‘Sobre Outros Carnavais', released in november 2014. Parallel to this, some versions of other artists' songs are posted in the YouTube channel of the band and the next album is under production.

The formation of Mades is Mateus Cortegoso on vocals and guitar, Bruno Masson on drums, Carlos Rennan Farias on bass and Yuri André on guitar. Mades is the musical bias of a whirlwind of ideas with the intention to overcome the barrier of superficial identification.
