“While many surmise that First Breath After Coma may be one of the great hopes for Portuguese music, those who have seen them live know they are an unmissable talent.”

Its All Indie

At only 20 years old, the members of FIRST BREATH AFTER COMA have a musical maturity far beyond their years. This is surely thanks to their previous incarnation as a high school band, where they played in moldy garages and smoky clubs, trying out their own versions of classics from bands ranging from Joy Division to The Doors, Iggy Pop to the Velvet Underground.

Then they decided to stop and give it some time. During their hiatus they discovered post-rock but never set aside the song form. A few years later, they returned full force. By 2012, they had been booked in Monkey Week, Vodafone Mexefest, Paredes De Coura, Bons Sons, had made it to the last round of the Thermometer Festival and released their first concept album, The Misadventures Of Anthony Knivet.
