Batucada Sound Machine
“Drownin’ in it” is the first single from Batucada Sound Machine‘s brand new studio album, “Dont Keep Silent” due out early 2012.
The band are letting fly early with this firey little summer anthem featuring Mr Richie Setford on vocals, and heralding a heavier, more urgent BSM sound.

Highlights include massive events such as Sziget Festival (Hungary), Horizonte Festival and Kulturarena (Germany), Larmer Tree Festival (UK) and the City of London Festival (UK) to name a few.
