Listen: SILVA - "January"
With Ocean View (Six Degrees Records, 2014), SILVA is building on his rocketing success in his native country and in Portugal. His “delicious pop melodies” (Rolling Stone Brazil) thrill crowds who know his lyrics by heart and sing along at major music festivals such as Lollapalooza Braziland Rock in Rio. Singing in English and Portuguese, he has shared stages with artists including The xx and Lana Del Rey and is poised to win over new fans with his unique blend of catchy electronic pop built on a Brazilian foundation.
Bolstered by such success, SILVA is embracing this new phase of his life. His openness and optimism are reflected in "January." As the artist explains, "Every year at the beginning of January I have a very positive feeling that the year is going to be great." Even for those where January means winter instead of summer, he says, "I think it has this feeling of a new year, a new moment."
