Translating as “The Temptation of Failure”, ‘A Tentação do Fracasso’ is the fourth album from São Paulo duo of Gabriel Soares and Conrado Passarelli AKA Atalhos. Creating a woozy suite of psychedelic-hued dream pop somewhere between the War On Drugs and Real Estate, it comprises 8 songs that ebb-and-flow with an ephemeral fluidity and a subtle grandeur.

Produced by Ives Sepulveda of Chilean psych duo The Holydrug Couple, ‘A Tentação do Fracasso’ was mastered by the celebrated Greg Calbi
