The birth of STANDBY STEREO takes place in 2013, starting with other musical projects that were already being developed since 2009 in the studio of the Casa da Juventude de Amarante.
The sonority that identifies the band is the alternative rock, sung in Portuguese. Among the band’s main influences are Ornatos Violeta, Linda Martini, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Dinosaur Jr., Jeff Buckley, The Smashing Pumpkins and The Subways.
Currently the band is composed by Pedro Macedo on vocals and guitar rhythm, João Costa on solo guitar, Ricardo Rocha on bass and Zé Pedro Abreu on drums.
Mostly performing in bars and small events, the band has also had the privilege of sharing the stage with great artists of the national scene, such as Diogo Piçarra, Agir, Blaya and Putzgrilla.
The summer of 2018 brought the recognition of seeing the theme “Conditions of Terms” be included in the soundtrack of the telenovela “Vidas Opostas” by SIC.
In the plans of the band for the future is the promotion of the EP “Letters On The Table” with live performances marked by their contagious energy and emotional in the delivery to the public.
