João Borsch (PT)
After a daring first impression left with the debut album “Uma Noite Romântica com João Borsch”, the multi-instrumentalist from Funchal is back with “É Só Harakiri, Baby”, a musical-album that explores addictions, its consequences, introspection and the paralyzing fear of being vulnerable
The album continues the artist’s line of ambition, exploring the limits of sound and pop environments, with vertiginous leaps in genre and style throughout the tracklist and with a growing focus on timbre and ambient sculpture. In this sense and in this artistic line, only one logical conclusion would make sense: a conceptual album, or rather, an art pop musical, with a narrative and defined characters, ironic, revelry, scandalous and devastating.
‘É Só Harakiri, Baby’ makes us follow a hedonistic character and the consequences of a life of addictions, insecurity and self-destruction, between Earth and Hell, shaping space and time along the way.
