“cafuné” is a Brazilian-Portuguese word that roughly translates to “the act of running your finger’sthrough a loved one’s hair.” Sedona Schat and Noah Yoo came upon the word while in college in New York, where they met. The two didn’t anticipate that Cafuné’s debut EP Love Songs for Other People (2015) would connect with a Brazilian fanbase a continent away. Those listeners’ early passion was thespark to continue on. Throughout their debut album Running (2021), Cafuné embrace their blend ofalternative pop, soft rock, and shoegaze, anchored by Sedona’s dreamy vocals.
