"Matéria". Is drawing influences from post punk, coldwave, and minimal synth, the record features 8 tracks that embody the band's distinctive sound. Formed by Tatiana Meyer on vocals and synths, and Paulo Beto on programming, synths, and guitar, the band brings a unique energy to their compositions. "Matéria" is an album inspired by the love between the members, who are a couple, as well as wave and dark electronic music with guitars from the 1980s. The album was entirely recorded in the band's home studio, Anvil FX, located in São Paulo, because both members are also part of the band Anvil FX.
Notably, the last track features a special guest appearance by Ana Romano, former member of the legendary band Silverblood (Cri du Chat Records!), delivering a poem from her book "A Casa das Pessoas". This track, "Joy Delirium," is a cover of a song taken from Silverblood's 1995 album "Imperfection." The track "Ilha Urbana" is also a cover, this time by the band Muzak, featured on the iconic Brazilian post punk compilation "Não São Paulo," released in 1985. The lyrics of "Matéria" address themes such as feminism and the pursuit of understanding what it means to be civilized and humane in today's world, challenging patriarchal structures. All lyrics were written by the couple Tatiana Meyer and Paulo Beto. The album's conception process took approximately 6 months, resulting in a meticulously crafted work. The cover art was created by Tatiana Meyer, with design by Gilbert
