MIRAMAR – Frankie Chavez & Peixe
Even though they hail from different latitudes, and they have trodden different paths, Frankie Chavez and Peixe are united in their work with the guitar. Their music is rich, without ever becoming excessive. It’s coherent, without ever becoming repetitive. Live, they perform over a background of images that are manipulated in real time; a “concert-film” that stands out by the mutual inspiration the dual universes of music and image play on each other and that audiences readily take in.
Their homonymous album was released in January 2019 and it was considered by the press one of the best Portuguese albums of the year and nominated for Best European Independent Album by The IMPALA Awards. In 2020, months after their participation at Eurosonic Festival in Groningen, Holand - where they were largely acclaimed - Portuguese Authors Society (SPA) distinguished “Guitarras”, a song from the debut album, with the prize “Best Popular Song”.
Still in 2020, due to restrictions associated with the covid-19 pandemic, they participated via streaming at Westway LAB Festival (Portugal) and at SIM São Paulo (Brazil).
Miramar are currently in studio preparing their second album which will be released in late 2021.
