For the final single leading up to his full length “Sounds Like Home” album, Captain Planet teamed up with the rising Brazilian indie soul maestro Tagua Tagua, creating a highly infectious song that mixes laid back funk with psychedelic Brazilian soul. “Destello” is a spanish word that translates as a flash or sparkle, a bright light that is gone too soon, and the dreamy poetic lyrics on this love song, sung in Portugese, suggest that the bright light of love is difficult to capture and hold on to in much the same way. After hearing Tagua’s music and becoming a fan, Captain Planet reached out in an email and the two started sharing sounds and ideas. The Captain described that “despite being a remote collaboration, the workflow was very natural and easy. We both somehow found a shared vision that blends our two styles, and there was no push or pull, just adding our ideas and digging what the other person was bringing to the table.” Fans of Brazilian funk like Marcos Valle & Tim Maia will find a lot to love here, as will folks who tend to lean more toward the psychedelic sounds of Caetano Veloso and other artists of the legendary Tropicalia movement. Even if you’ve never listened to Brazilian music before, we think you’ll agree that “Destello” is the sonic embodiment of rolling real slow in a roofless car next to your new crush while the sun sets behind palm trees swaying in a warm breeze.
