Proving that surf rock isn’t all about Dick Dale, Mighty Sands are a five-piece pizza band from Lisbon that blend colourful guitar sounds with simple but dancable rythms along with early 70s keyboards and blinkin’-an-eye-to-psychedelia pedals. All combined, we get a hot-n’-chill vibe that comes all the way (in slow waves) from the westernside of America: California. Their journey started in late 2013 when Teresa and Chaby first met. Writting songs in their bedroom, they certainly needed someone else to join the happy vessel and make songs real. Since then, it’s been a pretty ‘n pink adventure: they put out their EPs which are called BIG PINK vol.1 (2015) and BIG PINK vol.2 (2016). Together, the band also started an all-cassette DIY label called Spring Toast Records based on love, friendship, analog recording and unforgettable parties. They have already played with bands like Dirty Fences, Go!Zilla, The Holydrug Couple, The Blank Tapes, Tomorrows Tulips or Real Estate.
‘Once upon a time known as Los Black Jews, the portuguese Mighty Sands play surf rock. Play psych rock. Play garage rock. Play songs (..) ’ – TimeOut Magazine (2016)
