Escarlatina Obsessiva ist eine brasilianische Post-Punk Band, die sich 2006 gründete. Ihre Heimatstadt ist São Thome das Letras. Back to the rules ist wohl der erstbeste Gedanke, der uns bei ihrer Entdeckung einfiel. Inspiriert wurden Karolina (Vovals, Bass) und Zaf (Gitarre, Keyboard, Synths) durch die amerikanische Punkrock- und die europäische Postpunk-Szene.
In ihrer Heimat sind Escarlatina Obsessiva eine feste Größe in der Szene. Mittlerweile wurden fünf Longplayer aufgenommen. Ihr letztes Werk Drusba feierte am 28.12.2015 seinen Release. Auf Ihrer Homepage habt ihr die Möglichkeit das neuste Werk der beiden Brasilianer kostenlos zu Downloaden. Erfahrt bei unserem kleinen Interview einiges mehr über ihre Inspiration und Zukunftspläne.Who is behind Escarlatina Obsessiva?

Well, we just released a new album and I think we need to do some concerts soon to spread it

A band has to pass many ups and downs. So what was the absolutly highlight in the past and what the bitter low-point?
Well, I can mention some bitter points, for example being an underground band in Brazil, a country where the majority are dominated by Rede Globo and listen to Funk, Samba and Sertanejo, or the fact that here there’s no support to bands and underground artists in general, so you can imagine how hard it is for us. Some highlights I can mention are the nice people we meet during our shows, on internet, and the funny moments we have doing the video clips, rehearsing and performing on stage…

What´s the first thought by reading this words?
Music: our life, something we can’t live without
Childhood: good moments, but always depressive and lost
Blockade: the State, and Government and such things
Gig: best moments we had / have
Home: the world
