Pega Monstro are two sisters from Lisbon who started playing at a very young age (Maria fifteen, Júlia seventeen) in the band Os Passos Em Volta. As a duo, Maria sings and plays guitar, while Júlia plays the drums. “Alfarroba” (“Carob”) is their latest album released in Portugal and abroad. It has been described as “both juvenile and adult as rock’n’roll should be”, bringing together influences from punk, rock, and garage rock. By the end of last year, it had already been acknowledged as “Record of the Year” by Time Out Portugal and was a regular entry on many “best of 2015” lists.
