Castilho is the moniker of Pedro Castilho, synth player and backing vocalist of psychedelic rock band Savanna. Having emerged late 2017 with softer more melancholic sounding debut single ‚Come Back‘ to critical acclaim in his native Portugal, he has released his second song ‚Moving Fast, Moving Slow‘ late 2018 and his third track ‚Lucky Ones‘ in the summer of 2019, which captivate the attention of international musical curators.
‚The Wind Blows‘, fourth single from 2020, won the Novos Talentos Fnac award and opened the doors for his first show at Lisbon’s Coliseu dos Recreios.
These singles, along with two upbeat numbers in ‚Numbers‘ and ‚Looking for Ways‘, form the foundation for his debut album, Today we’ll be the lucky ones, released by the american label Pitch & Prose and the portuguese pontiaq. The nine-song collection is a shape-shifting synth pop gem, featuring richly textured synths and guitars, breezy vocals, tasteful dashes of psychedelia and an upbeat disposition courtesy of frontman Pedro Castilho.
After supporting the fourth European tour of The Lemon Lovers that gave him the opportunity to play in France, Luxembourg, among other countries, he’s been presenting „Today we’ll be the lucky ones“ since July by himself having played his first show in Austria, Linz, at posthof and now he’s coming back to the country with his first winter Euro Tour.
