Biography

“You should go ahead and play without preconceptions”, said an old man to Pedro Lourenço (guitar/vox) and David Ferreira (guitar), somewhere in Lisbon, in the early 2005. Doing something that sounded different from old projects was the main goal. The new sound had to be more emotional, relaxed, with an overall fluid and energetic feeling… After several sessions with some musicians, they met Tiago Salsinha who soon became the drummer for the band. The work started to evolve and the first demo, with four songs, appeared very naturally. At this time, the place for bass guitar was still empty and after a few contacts the band gets in touch with a female guitar player called Inês Vicente who accepted the challenge of becoming the bass player for You Should Go Ahead. With this lineup the band dives deeper in the composition of more songs, recording their second demo in June 2005. After a few live performances producing a retro-rock sounding with some pop influence, combining different environments, using for the purpose vibrating guitars supported by frenetic and pulsating rhythms, the band had the opportunity to play at Festival Sudoeste, one of the biggest summer festivals in Portugal. You Should Go Ahead shared the same stage with LCD Soundsystem, Maxïmo Park, Devendra Banhart, Ladytron, etc. This gave the band a very good review in the press and lots of radio exposure.
