OPTIC YELLOW FELT

From the nooks and cranes of Brazil, born in a small town in the countryside of Minas Gerais, the Nader brothers (Victor & Lino) migrated to the US in their early age (7, 11 respectively) with their family, back in the 90’s.

At their teen ages, after spending childhood in Florida, they went back to Brazil. Socially misplaced and influenced by rock music, they started to get involved with guitars and songwriting. After putting together a few tunes, they decided to put a band together.

Thats when they teamed up with Tiago. He already was rocking the local venues drumming with a Heavy Metal band. Funny coincidence, Tiago and Victor were born the same day, only 15 min apart from each other at the same hospital. It didn’t took them long to create Optic Yellow Felt.

With an extensive international exposure and work signed by Roy Cicala, OYF is now finalizing their latest EP Laser Beam to be released in the Winter of 2018. This very 70’s and 90’s influenced Adult Rock album explores a straight forward sound and texture but yet with a very strong signature due to their arrangements and songwriting characteristics. This album also contains they first cover song “Rocket Man” from Elton John. “We wanted to make him a tribute but it was when we were jamming some Pixies that the arrangements for Rocket Man were born. We followed through and it sounds pretty damn groovy haha.” A video is being produced by Antoni Vicentini, who has also worked on a video with Beck.

Stay tuned for the album release and come see them live when they come to your local rock venue.
