Proving that surf rock isn’t all about Dick Dale, Mighty Sands are a five-piece pizza band from Lisbon that blend colourful guitar sounds with simple but danceable rhythms along with early 70s keyboards and blinkin’-an-eye-to-psychedelia pedals. All combined, we get a hot-n’-chill vibe that comes all the way (in slow waves) from the western side of America: California. Their journey started in late 2013 when Teresa and Chaby first met. Writing songs in their bedroom, they certainly needed someone else…

Or not. It's…
