Throes + The Shine
Throes + The Shine were born in 2011 in the heart of Porto. A communion between Portugal and Angola, they are characterized by a hybrid of kuduro (Angola’s explosive dance music), electronic sounds and rock ferocity. They’re stage presence is tremendously exciting and contagious: moving bodies and smiles are the common denominator in the crowds that are present in those moments.
Three records later, and with hundreds of shows in over ten countries, they came back in 2019 with an ambitious new album — Enza (self-released and distributed by Sony Music Portugal) — and showed excitement to cross new borders and take their cultural blend to every corner of the world.
After successfully touring Europe and Brazil in support of their new record, Throes + The Shine have entered 2020 with an exciting new challenge: Festival da Canção 2020. The Porto based band will perform in Portugal’s national TV show alongside other local established talents — the winner will go on to participate in Eurovision Festival 2020 — with “Movimento”, a track written by themselves.
