INTENSO is the name of the second and new album of Sonia Chammah.Â The album was produced by Amilcar Vasquez artistically and isÂ launched together by AY!Â Music, her own production companyÂ and “Clandestine editions of Rock & Reggae”.Â The publisher corresponds to Universal.Â The brand new work represents another stage in the artist’s life: it is strong, fast, fresh, perhaps the loss of innocence that she proposed on herÂ first album.Â This time influences such as The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, MGMT, Weezer, The Ramones, The Kooks and other bands that renew the commitment of pop punk and punk rock and other classics..
INTENSE is simply that: strong, agile with some nuances sounding ballads and lead the drive to places of tranquility and reflection for mounting the breakneck pace of the rest of the songs again.
