Brazilian rap trio Pearls Negras have announced that they will play their first European shows in the coming weeks, starting tonight with a headline show at the Aoûtside festival in France. Amongst their itinerary are two London shows.

On the upcoming gigs, Mariana from the group told CMU: “For me it’s really important that with this tour we manage to get our message across and leave an impression on the public. I am also really curious to see how they are going to react. Apart from that I am really looking forward to getting out here, having loads of fun,and also to buying some wicked clothes!”

Jenny added: “We want to conquer the public here, and in all the places that we go. I am looking forward to changing my look with some crazy hairstyles!”

The tour coincides with the release of a new single, ‘Make It Last’, which is taken from the group’s CMU approved mixtape, ‘Biggie Apple’.

Of the track, Mariana said: “‘Make It Last’ is about having fun, going out and not letting other people kill your vibe – let the night flow, cos the night is ours! This song, it’s a call to forget all our problems for a while and celebrate!”

Alice added: “It’s different from our other songs, where we talk about the problems of society and more serious subjects. It’s much more pop!”

The video for the track sees the group employing some distinctly dark humour into their visuals. Check it out here:
