En The Redshift Blues vive el claro ejemplo de cómo usar los mejores recursos de diferentes géneros para elaborar un concepto que va mucho más allá de lo genérico. La mente responsable de tan prodigiosa hazaña es la del talentoso joven portugués Indigo Dias; quien desde 2020 se ha encargado de crear una de las más arriesgadas propuestas powerpop-jazzy-rock, que desde la segunda década del siglo XXI han llegado a nuestros ... read more
