Pega Monstro are sisters Julia Reis (drums) and Maria Reis (guitar), both sing! The duo's name translates as 'catch the monster', perfectly countering the band's striving dream-punk sound.
The name 'Pega Monstro' also references a novelty toy in the shape of a jelly hand on a string, which children have been throwing at each other in delight for many generations in their native country.
Born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal, Maria and Julia have been playing music together since they were 15 and 17 respectively, in other groups first before resolving on becoming a duo. Back in 2010, both sisters started a record label, along with some of their musician friends, called Cafetra Records to document Portugal's garage punk scene. Cafetra represents a community of like-minded musicians who all help each other, making music that they'd want to hear, powered by enthusiasm.
