A fine blend of rock-folk, tropicalism and jazz, somewhere in between Beach Boys and Beck, Silver Jews and Combustible Edison. João Correia and Bruno Pernadas formed Julie & the Carjackers in 2009, to give life to the many songs which didn't fit their previous projects. Their 2010 home-recorded EP on Optimus Discos, with its almost naïve, somewhat low-fi sound, traces a line between Bossa Nova and 90s american indie rock.

do album “Saudade de Você - Real Combo Lisbonense às voltas com Carmen Miranda”
Launched on November 2011 by Pataca Discos, their first album brings more sophistication in. “Paraosol” shows greater instrumental diversity (marimba, flute, flugelhorn, trombone, guitars, varied percussions, multiple keyboards); refinement of the arrangements (wind instruments, chorus, keyboards); different lead-singers (besides João Correia, Inês Sousa, Margarida Campelo, António Vasconcelos Dias); All these elements contribute for "Parasol"'s somewhat mysterious and surprising universe. The album was mixed by Luís ‘Walter Benjamin’ Nunes and mastered by Rafael Toral.
By the end of 2011 Julie & the Carjackers were back in the studio to record and film four songs. This session would become the first episode of the Live@15A series.
