Band A Part are a duo from Madrid, who took inspiration for their name from Jean-Luc Godard’s 1964 film Bande À Part. Clearly, both their sound aesthetics and sense of fashion are reminiscent of that time and universe and French New Wave in general. In “Al Sur De Portugal” (south of Portugal), the mood is up for a change of airs to southern Portugal. Well, why not? They can always sunbathe on São Torpes beach like they would sunbathe in Saint-Tropez.

The great saxophonist who played with Miles Davis and had a former U.S. president visit him on his deathbed clearly had a great night in Lisbon at some point.
