Biography

Udora and their debut brings a unique blend of Rock, Bossa Nova along with singer Gustavo Drummond's soul-searching lyrics, to a broad audience. The image depicted on the album cover shows a path. Although were striving for an end result, its the process of getting there thats most important. The road that has to be traveled is both grim and enlightening, and to conquer your goals in life, you need to be focused on the journey, not only on the destination., says Gustavo. Back home in Brazil, Liberty Square - the historical landmark, was always perceived as a symbol and a refuge to the chaotic lifestyle in Belo Horizonte. On their debut album, Udora finds deeper meanings to those words. "Liberty Square represents the physical place where we came from, but more importantly, it also represents a state of mind, a metaphor for what weve always dreamed to become." says Gustavo Drummond, the bands lead singer/songwriter. The story begins in Brazil at their defining point playing the Rock in Rio Festival, the largest concert ever held in South America. Udora battled and beat over 1,500 bands for the main prize of performing in front of a crowd of 250,000 people. The exposure at the festival led to a successful tour where they sold over 10,000 self-released CD's over more than 150 shows. With the bands raw power and range of musical sensibilities, Liberty Square showcases an original yet familiar sound, that fits perfectly into today's Alternative Rock music scene. With a live show that has the explosive caress of a velvet hand grenade, Udora is determined to reach the end of this journey in order to embrace a much greater one.

Lyrics

The Beautiful Game

Written By: Gustavo Drummond

The Beautiful Game

I can do anything
I can be crowned a king
It's my time now
To play the beautiful game

Something inside of me
Wont take them long to see
Ive kept my vows
Things will never be the same

Closer now, in the sun I wanna stay
Til those memories are burning
And broken times couldnt mean more than today
Im giving everything Ive got now
To make them remember my name
Im giving everything Ive got now
To play the beautiful game

Up on my feet again
Kissing away the pain
Its my time now
To taste this beautiful game

A new state of urgency
Floods me internally
To show them how
Things will never be the same

Shining down, theres a light in front of me
Help me find what Ive been wanting
Not so far from the world I wanna see
I'm giving everything I got now
To make them remember my name
Im giving everything I got now
To play the beautiful game

Phantom Limb

Written By: Gustavo Drummond

Phantom Limb

Hey now, I’m turning away
Far and alone
It’s pulling me deep inside
Hey now, I’m facing the day
Far and alone
Tucked in the hands of time

Know that my thoughts still claim for you
know that I long

Burning inside of me
No matter where I’ll be
I feel like it’s still somewhere within
Just like a phantom limb

Hey now, I’m running away
Far and alone
Stumbling upon my mind
Hey now, I’m placing the weight
Far and alone
No one could break this stride

Know that my heart still begs for you
Know that I long

Burning inside of me
No matter where I’ll be
I feel like it’s still somewhere within
Just like a phantom limb
Just like a phantom limb
Just like a phantom limb

Know that my thoughts still claim for you
Know that I won’t be long
Know that my heart still waits for you
Know that I long

Burning inside of me
No matter where I’ll be
I feel like it’s still somewhere within
Just like a phantom limb

Burning inside of me
No matter where I’ll be
I feel like you’re still somewhere within
Just like a phantom limb
