Introducing Brazilian-American duo, Complicated Animals

Complicated Animals are Monica da Silva and Chad Alger, who have been collaborating in both music and in life, since they met in 2007. Neither one can seem to remember which came first, the songs or the relationship. The Brazilian American duo has combined their lives and styles to form their self-coined Indie Nova genre, which blends Indie Pop, and Brazilian Bossa Nova, into something new and fresh. Written and recorded in a cabin in the woods in Michigan, their debut EP “In This Game” received rave reviews from blogs and journalists, and was called “a 6 song masterpiece” and the “beginning of a new sound” by PopMatters. Complicated Animals have shared stages with the likes of Gaelynn Lea,The Oh Hellos, Buena Vista Social Club, Arlo Guthrie, The Indigo Girls, Brandi Carlisle, and Emmylou Harris.
