The three components of Throes + The Shine use each creative impulse to build a unique style, which catalyzes the infectious energy that soaks their live performances. Originally coming from Porto (Portugal) and Luanda (Angola), they base their sound on a fusion that began with mixing kuduro music from Angola and rock, and continued to expand until reaching influences from a multitude of cultures, from Africa to Europe, passing through the Caribbean, Asia and the US. Dance, Afro-rock riffs and tropical bass also travel on this ship. Sounds from the most avant-garde electronic and the ancestral Africa are mixed with powerful rapped lyrics, captivating the younger audiences of major festivals. For this reason, the band got invited to festivals such as Primavera Sound Portugal or Vodafone Paredes de Coura. Throes + The Shine has always maintained the balance between its frenetic and overwhelming live show and lyrics and the elegance and attention to details of its design and production. On its fourth album “Enza”, the alliance with Sony Music allowed the trio to reach a new level of sound quality and maturity. In addition, in 2020 the band was finalist in the RTP da Cançao Festival, the preliminary phase to represent Portugal in Eurovision.
