Elektra [aka Lívia Xavier] is a Brazilian solo pop/rock singer/songwriter from São Paulo. Elektra is best known, as the lead singer of Paramore-inspired pop/rockers Fake Number who disbanded in November 2014.
My thoughts… Fake Number is not only my favorite rock band from Brazil, they’re also one of my favorite rock bands – period! Fake Number rises above language barriers with addictive melodies, crunchy riffs and Elektra‘s amazing vocals. If you doubt, watch this video for “Primeira Lembrança” …
The truth is that, as much as Elektra loves Paramore, I was into Fake Number long before I finally embraced Hayley Williams‘ influential band! When I read that Fake Number called it quits and that Elektra was pursuing a solo career, I assumed, for some reason, that she’d go the acoustic route. Then, I saw the video for “Noite”! Awesome! I tried to pledge the campaign for her debut solo EP via Kikante but, apparently, I can’t do that here in the U.S.! I sure hope she makes the release available to her American fans – even if I’m the only one! Oh, and is it necessary for me to point out how adorable Elektra is? No, it’s not – but I did it anyway!
