From the cold wastelands of the 21st century, the Garotas Suecas were born. With their first appearance in Sao Paulo City, Brazil, 2005, Garotas Suecas (Swedish Girls) is formed by Guilherme Saldanha (vocals and harmonica), Irina Bertolucci Chermont (organ), Perdido (bass) and the Paoliello brothers Nico (drums) and Tomaz (guitar).
Influenced by the soul and R&B masters of the sixties such as Otis Redding and Sly & the Family Stone, the band cannot deny their garage and psychedelic origins shown by the fuzz guitar sounds and crazy organ riffs,. Burning the dance floors throughout the country with their unique brand of rock, the Garotas Suecas are also true heirs of the unique tropical rock sounds created by the brazilian Tropicalia and Jovem Guarda movements of the sixties and early seventies. Listen to the Garotas Suecas, theyíll make you dance.
