A Brief Study On How To Fail Completely Vol.1 is an album about loneliness.
Kid Foguete, a five-piece-act from São Paulo, returns to it’s origins with their newest work. Like their first EP (Asteroids 2012), A Brief Study On How To Fail Completely Vol.1 was composed and recorded by Rafael Carozzi (vocals / guitar) in his home studio.
The outcome is an album featuring long lasting songs, that builds narratives developing in a constant crescendo of elements and melodies, culminating in cathartic third-acts.
Rafael Carozzi and André Garbin’s guitars, persistent in previous works, now sound scattered, minimalist and blended in riffs that complete each other and impose themselves as walls of sounds as the dramatic intent reaches it’s peak. Synthesizer and vocals (Alinne Anno and Rafael Carozzi, respectively) outgrow the background and conduct melodically the song’s first acts; Pablo Turazzi’s bass and Felipe Petroni’s drums wander amongst shoegaze and post-punk’s rhythmic persistency in Looking For The Right Things In The Wrong Places, Walls and Bound, and the minimalism and bold rhythm featured in The Plan and An Ever Expanding Universe.
Loneliness, the main theme in the album’s lyrics, is also represented musically by the instrument’s interactions. We frequently find moments in which the musicians seem to be playing different, unrelated songs, giving form to a piece almost by chance.
On one hand, A Brief Study On How To Fail Completely Vol.1 presents an accessible Kid Foguete; on the other, it presents the careful listener with very rich timbres, textures and elements and astonishing melodic variety.
