"Depois de Shanghai é a vez do Brasil receber os portugueses Fingertips"

Depois de dispender os últimos meses a trabalhos de composição e pré-produção de novas canções – a ser gravadas no próximo mês de Outubro, em Nova Iorque – os portugueses Fingertips têm viagem marcada para o Brasil nos próximos dias 21 e 24, datas estas que integram uma digressão internacional que irá, ainda, passar pela América, Europa e Ásia.
Com a promessa de «uma produção contínua de conteúdos», o grupo aponta a «experiências nos concertos ao vivo» e partilha de palco com nomes como «Queen, Nelly Furtado e George Michael» como os «alicerces» da sua inspiração criativa. Depois de passar por Shanghai, o grupo continua a investir em estratégias de promoção da sua música destacando-se, notoriamente, a internacionalização.
A sua agenda durante a estadia no Brasil conta com «várias acções promocionais privadas» e dois conceros que marcam a estreia do grupo junto do público brasileiro. Desta forma, Rui, John, Cece, e Jo apresentam-se no Hotel Pestana São Paulo, no dia 21, pelas 19h00 e no Pestana Rio Atlântica, no dia 24. - Cultur` Art Mag


"Banda Europeia, Fingertips, se apresenta pela primeira vez no Brasil"

A banda portuguesa fará shows em São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro, nas próximas duas semanas.

Um dos novos fenômenos da música europeia, a banda portuguesa Fingertips, chega ao Brasil pela primeira vez, para uma série de shows promocionais. Cantando em inglês e com quase um milhão de visualizações em seu canal do Youtube, a banda é conhecida por toda a Europa e desembarca no Brasil para apresentações em São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro.

Fingertips, que esteve em turnê em Shangai neste último mês, ficará duas semanas no Brasil para divulgar suas músicas de trabalho e participar de eventos pela rede de hotéis Pestana. Essa ação faz parte da divulgação da banda, que passará por diversos países da América, Europa e Ásia.

Nos últimos meses, o grupo português trabalhou na composição e pré-produção de novas músicas que serão gravadas em Nova Iorque, em Outubro. De extrema afinação e excelente desempenho ao vivo, a banda foca em em grandes festivais. Eles já participaram do Rock in Rio, Westbund Music Festival e dividiram o palco com a banda “Queen” e com os cantores “Nelly Furtado” e “George Michael”. Dentre as várias ações promocionais que vão acontecer no Brasil, a banda se apresentará pela primeira vez dia 21 de Setembro, às 19h, no Hotel Pestana, em São Paulo e no dia 24, no Pestana Rio Atlântica, no Rio de Janeiro. - Radio POPFM


"West Bund Music Festival"

Shanghai's glut of festivals continues to swell, with the announcement of this year's West Bund Music Festival headliners. Kicking off on the same day as the latest BooshKaBaash Festival, the now annual Mandopop-dominated fest will once again take over the park beside Xuhui Riverside (the same site as Storm).

The line-up features some of the biggest names in the Mandopop world - including Taiwanese boyband May Day who return to headline having topped the bill at last year's outing - and a few token Western acts, this year consisting of Portuguese pop-rockers The Fingertips and Vladivostok rock act Mumiy Troll. J-pop star Jin Akanishi and Taiwan-based heartthrob Wang Leehom (watch below) complete the list of major performers. - Timeout


"Event features established artists and new discoveries from China"

A golden autumn is looming, and with it a host of great music festivals. Of these, the third West Bund Music Festival is taking the lead, bringing a range of original music to the Xuhui Binjiang area over the Mid-Autumn Festival holiday (September 6 to 8).

Established in 2012, the festival has quickly risen to become one of the most significant music events in the city. According to its organizer, last year it drew a crowd of 60,000, double that of its debut year.

This year, the event is coming back with an even more stellar lineup. Highlights include Chinese-American singer and songwriter Wang Leehom, Taiwanese pop band May Day, Chinese rock'n'roll veteran Zheng Jun, and Taiwanese singer and actor Wakin Chau.

Foreign acts include Japanese singer and songwriter Jin Akanishi (pictured below), a former member of group KAT-TUN who went solo in 2010; celebrated Russian rock band Mumiy Troll, who have won a string of awards since their first album was released in 1997, including Best Rock Group 1997 from Russian Music Academy and the Legend of MTV at the MTV Russia Music Awards in 2006; and Portuguese indie rock band The Fingertips (pictured below), who have topped radio airplay charts with their heart-touching ballads.
"West Bund Music Festival has always worked to promote international musicians. We want to make use of the platform to not only introduce foreign musicians to Chinese fans but also attract expat fans working and living in China," said Li Lin, artistic director of the festival.

The music festival also aims to promote emerging artists, selecting them from across the country through a national campaign.

From July 1 to July 30, a total 113 bands applied online. According to their ranking by fans as well as professional judges, 30 were selected to put on street performances in the city earlier this month. Of these, 18 were selected to participate in the West Bund Music Festival. They include Hard Candy Revolution, Longjin and Time Street from Beijing; Psyclopus and Nonplus of Color from Shanghai; Stolen Joy and Zhou Chen's band from Hangzhou; Kabuki and Mayuan Poet from Yunnan Province; Orange Ocean from Shandong Province, and Sulede from Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.

The criteria used to select participating bands, according to Li, were that each band should have original songs, that their music and singing should be of a high standard, and that they have a good stage presence. - Global Times


"Out of control - Let`s Dance"

What a tremendous dance duo Fingertips are. Coming from Portugal (one of my favorite countries), Fingertips is composed of Joana Gomes (vox) and Rui Saraiva (guitar/ bass), and they are conquering the international industry with their brand new “Out of Control”! Gomes’ smooth and sultry vocals combine perfectly with the musicianship of Saraiva. This band will certainly get you off your butt and onto the dance floor. Want to dance with me? Let’s take a chance and get “Out Of Control”. - Audio Fuzz

Bio

Fingertips is a duo from Portugal consisting of members Joana Gomes (lead vocals) and Rui Saraiva (lead guitar/bassist). Musically, the twosome are inspired by such legendary artists as David Bowie, U2, Depeche Mode as well as contemporaries like Muse, Lorde and Arctic Monkeys. Fingertips saw success with their single “Melancholic Ballad,” which earned nine months of airplay reaching No.1; their single “Picture of My Own” was featured as the soundtrack for a major TV commercial; they reached the No.1 spot on the Portuguese iTunes with “Do It (Magic Colors)” and created the official song for Euro-Gym in 2013 with ‘Let’s Share.” Fingertips is no stranger to the road either, having performed alongside Queen, The Cure, Nelly Furtado, George Michael and The Corrs and playing showcases in Toronto, UK, Singapore, Australia, France, The Netherlands, Japan, Brazil, China and the U.S. The Portuguese pair have returned with a brand new song called “Out Of Control.” With an indie-rock melody, the track was composed by Rui and written by Joana. The single is about dreams, fierce and freedom, and was produced by Mark Needham (The Killers, Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees) along with Fingertips.
