Complicated Animals is a vintage bossa nova flavored indie-pop duo based in Chicago. They recently released their EP In this Game this February 10th. Brazilian American songstress Monica Da Silva and musician-producer Chad Alger are the conjurers of this perfect musical alibi.
Their debut album, Brasilissima — under the name of Monica de Silva – gained the duo notoriety with their track “Aí Então”, which was later featured in the Putumayo Records compilation Brazilian Beat. In 2014, another cut from Brasilissima, “That’s Not the Way”, was featured on an ESPN broadcast of the World Cup.
The first single from In this Game, “Phoenix”, together with another 5 tracks, opens gates to Monica and Chad´s personal cosmos; a bilingual pop atmosphere layered with sparks of the ’70s create an imaginary bridge between Sampa and Chitown.
