The term "madrugada" is Spanish/Portuguese and means "dawn" -- the blue hour.
So there you have it a Norwegian rock band with a Spanish/Portuguese name, singing in English with a lead singer who sounds like a cross between Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen (Australian / Canadian). Who says internationalism is dead?
