"Love Without Violins" by The Gift
BTR Live Studio | ep598 | Apr 7, 2017
The Gift is an alternative rock band from Portugal who recently celebrated their second decade of music-making. On their latest release, their distinct sound is honed by the production and co-writing magic of the legendary Brian Eno, with singer Sónia Tavares’ distinct vocals as an impressive focal point. The group dropped by Serious Business Music in DUMBO, Brooklyn, during their recent U.S. tour to give us this taste of that collaboration, and what to expect from their new record.

Altar by The Gift will be released digitally on April 7th, and on CD/vinyl May 5.
