The Brazilians were borne in the Gordonvale pubs nestled amongst the Mulgrave Delta cane fields of deep Far North Queensland. The band got their start playing loud and proud, with the twin guitar attack of Todd Macalpine and Callum “Frullet” Willians competing against the industrial din of the Gordonvale sugar mill pumping 24/7.
The Brazilians are now busting out of the cane fields ready to turn up the menace & mayhem around the globe with the release of their debut album, Delta. With eleven powerful cuts, including the red hot lead-single “Delta Queen”, and thunderously epic follow-up single “Rise Up” – the entire set-list blazes from beginning to end.
Whether taking ambitious dives into deeper meanings through socially-conscious tracks like “Elephant In The Room,” or turning up the spirit of Rock to eleven by going balls to the wall on the riotous ode to all things cock rock “Rooster Stone” – The Brazilians hold nothing back & put strong ideas, attitude, and solid musicianship front & centre. Peppered with the salty attitude of seasoned veterans of the music-scene, The Brazilians bring some northern heat to the cuts on Delta that will have you reaching for the volume knob to test its limits!
According to lead singer/songwriter and guitarist Todd Macalpine “A lot of albums now have one or two good songs on them, and you end up skipping half the album. We wanted to do something akin to a classic Led Zeppelin album where the content is musically diverse all the way through, but strong enough to make you listen from beginning to end. It had to have enough detail to warrant repeat listening. We have road tested these songs over the last 2 years and they stand up well at gigs played next to classic covers that people know and love.”
A gripping & energetic set that embodies the spirit & style of real Rock’n’Roll – Delta is an adventure in sound that incorporates Blues, Alternative, Metal, Punk, Psychedelic, Classic Hard Rock, and more, into an entire album designed to captivate from the moment it kicks-in until the very second it’s all over.
