Progressive rocker LEO MAIA has released a video for his stunning track "Sonhos" which is also available to stream on all digital platforms.

Leo comments "I'm super happy to release this music video! It's my first time releasing a video and I've tried to capture the independent artist angle on this by capturing how the song was actually recorded -- Prog Rock straight from the bedroom! It's good to relate a face and performance to the music and I can't wait to find out how people receive it.

Sonhos is a very important song to me since it highlights a lot of my composition style, blending classic prog rock elements with more modern post rock while using the more metal high and full of vibrato style of singing. The song is about the neverending chase of your dreams which can get very close to your reach but seems like you wake up before you get to it. The message is to not give up and take your dreams outside of your bed sheets. I hope you like it!"


LEO MAIA’s philosophy is to make modern prog rock that is accessible with a primary focus on song writing. Drawing from a wide range of influences the complexity in his music derives from jazz-based harmonies and modulations (key changes) for conveying emotions through musical narratives. LEO MAIA’s began producing and releasing music in the wake of a difficult personal experience. Following a spontaneous total collapse of the left lung leaving him in a hospital bed with draining chest tubes for over a week, he decided to begin his solo project. LEO's first single “Pneumothorax” was written about this major life event. The new release "Sonhos" sought influence from artists including KING CRIMSON, MOGWAI, OCEANSIZE, MUTANTES, BJORK, AYREON, GENTLE GIANT, SIGUR RÓS, DREAM THEATER, and PINK FLOYD. Conceptually this single takes on a very different narrative into the contradictory nature of chasing dreams amidst the mundane aspects of life.

"Sonhos" is a stunning single comprised elegant composition. The dynamic intertwining of instrumental textures from the abrasive edge of distortion through to smooth saxophone motifs, unveils an array of distinctive parts that marry together beautifully into a serene, atmospheric soundscape.
