Orgatronics – Moonfruit
The band’s debut album, Moonfruit was released in 2005 on One Note Records to great press reviews and, all these years later, it continues to receive vast amounts of airplay around the world. And several tracks from the album have been featured on ambient and chill out compilations including on albums from the most famous label of all in this genre, Café del Mar.
Since the album’s release the band have been constantly in demand, performing at festivals and clubs around the UK. Alongside original material their shows feature traditional Brazilian song structures and harmonies, which they overlay with a modern aesthetic, breathing new life in to familiar forms. Captivating vocalist, Emily Levy, sings in Portuguese, Spanish and English. Her expressive improvisational style brings both soulful melody and an ethereal feel to the unique Orgatronics sound.
Moonfruit is a unique fusion of Latin, pop and electronic sounds that are hard to find anywhere else…or, to put it another way: think Manu Chao starting a fight with the Gotan Project cheered on by Air and Tito Puente.
