Many moons ago, two Englishmen met two Norwegian girls in Brazil. They lived together with a man called Murilo and had many adventures. Some time later they left Murilo behind and moved to Norway, where the Englishmen started a band and named it after him as a dedication. The 6 man, Norwegian/English, Oslo based indie powerhouse called "Casa Murilo" quickly built something of a reputation on the Oslo underground for their raucous, energetic live show. They played all over the country and had lots of nice things said about them, including being described as "Norway's Best Band" by Plan B Magazine after a show at Øya 2011.
Casa Murilo told this story on their debut album "Lifting Ships", released to great fanfare and acclaim in 2011. They subsequently toured Norway, played a whole bunch of festivals, got playlisted on P3 national Radio and pioneered the concept of the "house party tour", where on one night, 5 fans invite the band into their homes to play for them and their friends. Very good times were had by all. They are planning to do some more in 2012.
Now the lads are writing and arranging their second album, planning to play abroad and are focussing on generally having a good time.

Chris Winfield - Vocals
