Wannabe Jalva began playing their self-proclaimed “uterus space-groove rock” in 2010. Wannabe Jalva is – Rafael Rocha (Vocals, Guitar), Tiagao Abrahão (Bass, Guitar), Fernando Paulista (Drums and Percussion) and Felipe Puperi (Vocals, Guitars, Keys)
Over the past four years, the band has solidified their status space bass groove band. In 2011, they were invited to play the inaugural MECAFestival in Porto Alegre, playing alongside Two Door Cinema Club and Vampire Weekend. That summer they released their debut EP, Welcome To Jalva, which had fans and critics immediately hooked on their sound. Wannabe Jalva closed out the year with a slot opening for Pearl Jam and at Zequinha Stadium (20,000 capacity). Pearl Jam hand selected Wannabe Jalva after considering a number of Brazilian bands for the opening slot. Receiving great feedback from critics and Brazilian music blogs, Wannabe Jalva’s live following grew throughout Brazil via extensive touring in 2012. After the big gig, they began to work on new material. Countless nights were spent locked inside Rafael’s large glass-windowed basement, overlooking the coastal cityscape. The band found themselves locked in a lo-fi groove, oscillating from explosive to intimate sounds, with walls of reverb driving through simple grooves. This journey through sidereal environments and textures became the foundation for Collecture.

Wannabe Jalva announces the release of their new record Collecture, due out on October 15th, 2014.
