"Affection to Belong" is the new album from the Portuguese power trio El Señor and marks not only the first release since "Suburbs of Joy" (2019), but also a transition to a more raw and visceral sound. The traces of a more classic garage rock, which found in post-punk and fuzz the necessary gap to explode, were left aside. It gave way to a series of songs that, without hesitation, let themselves be carried away by the restlessness of a rock that lives how it wants and, perhaps, for what it was born.
"Affection to Belong" is an exaltation to rock n' roll and punk that transports us to a schizophrenic and bizarre suspension. On the way, El Señor don't give up moments that pay homage to melody, shattering it with a dissonance and subversion that underlines the singularity they are made of.
