After grabbing the attention of heavy-weights such as Roberto Menescal and Will Gompertz on their debut single London, now Muca & La Marquise have released their second single, Blue Moon Bossa. Muca, evokes his Brazilian origins and revisits the most-loved Brazilian genre bossa nova. Inspired by artists such as João Gilberto and Tom Jobim, he revitalised the bossa nova for modern times. The band spoke with The Fountain about the track as well as revealing that we can expect an album in 2021.
TF: You have a new single out, what has the reception been like to Blue Moon Bossa?
We’ve just released the single, and we’re super excited about the results. Even people with not much exposure to the genre are saying some really positive things, so I guess we did a good job on this one!
TF: How would you sum it up in one sentence?
A cool and groovy bossa/jazzy track that’s perfect for Autumn.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this single release?
We’ve got the full album coming up next year, featuring a very special guest, so in the meantime, we’re focusing on releasing two more singles in 2020.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
That’s a difficult question as no one knows where or when their next gig will be right now! I really like Paper Dress Vintage, our local Hackney Central venue, because it’s just the right size (space) and is very close to my music studio (Secret Warehouse Of Sound).
