Depois dos The Delgados, mais uma banda a colecção bandas que me chamaram a atenção pelo nome que têm, Portugal. The Man, direitinhos do Alasca.

What is it about Portugal The Man that makes them stand out, that separates them from every other rock band?
Is it due to an unconventional upbringing in the magical and menacing tundra of the Land of the Northern Lights? Maybe it has something to do with their visceral live shows, their effortless ability to create concert experiences that differ wildly from night to night. Or perhaps it’s due to the bond they actively forge with their ever-growing fan base evidenced by their showing up to in-store signings, radio stations or interviews with personalized paintings for their supporters.

I just don’t get the name.
