About the Band
Complicated Animals’ Monica da Silva and Chad Alger have been collaborating in music and in life, since meeting in Chicago in 2007. They released the album “Brasilissima” in 2010, under da Silva’s name. Having lived in both the United States and Brazil, da Silva combined her two cultures into her writing, melding Indie Pop and Bossa Nova together to form a new genre, one she coined Indie Nova. Featuring songs in English and Portuguese, the album was co-produced by Chad Alger, and Bruce Driscoll (Freedom Fry). In 2015, da Silva and Alger debuted as Complicated Animals, with the release of their 6-song EP “In This Game”. Written and recorded in a cabin in the woods in Michigan, “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 performed on TED, and shared stages with the likes of Jenny O, Reeve Carney, Gaelynn Lea, The Oh Hellos, Rodrigo Amarante, and Emmylou Harris. Based in Los Angeles, California, the duo regularly tour the country to perform. Their latest single ‘Show Me’ (2018) was just featured on MTV Brazil, and Obscure Sound.
