TANDRA Singer FELIPE FRANCO Reveals Concept Behind The Song ‘Winter Days’


TANDRA first officially released single – preceding their first full-length album – “Winter Days” has been getting hits from across the world, especially on Spotify.

The single has just been released and it’s already a success in gathering visibility, both in Brazil, as well as in other countries that are appreciative of Folk Metal that focuses on Nordic culture.

The song written by lead singer Felipe Franco, speaks of an epic medieval battle, where the people fights to preserve their creeds, ideologies and culture. The musician reveals where he got the inspiration from to write this beautiful song: “This episode is based on historical accounts of the christianization of medieval Europe, working in a context that could be interpreted through the present day.

“Musically, it’s a song that expresses many feeling and momentos throughout its 8:24 minutes, having some very expressive and agressive moments, as well as soothing melodies from the accordion, the flute and the Hurdy Gurdy.

“We can say that ‘Winter Days’ is one of our conceptual songs, it’s heavy and technical, but it also has a whole ambience, a whole atmosphere to describe the setting where it takes place, with a very visible influence from Death Metal, Black Metal, as well as some very eloquent melodies…  This song features CURITIBA‘s musician Gabriel Inague as a special guest on the ‘Hurdy Gurdy.'”
