Restart was a Brazilian pop-rock band that independently formed the subgenre of happy rock in São Paulo in August 2008. It became one of the best known bands in the country at the time, and had been touted as being one of the pioneers in the use of colored clothing, especially in regard to their pants apparel. The band's first album was released in November 2009, entitled Restart. It has three singles - "Recomeçar", "Levo Comigo" and "Pra Você Lembrar".
Their colorful fashion trend competed with the so-called música colorida subculture in Brazil - seen in the youth of Brazil as well as much of Latin America. These teens are called coloridos for being fans of Restart's genre of music, which is a subgenre of indie rock that was underground in nature and with only few supporters in big cities like Curitiba, and São Paulo, being unknown to those fans of metal and rock in Brazil, the so called "rockeiros". Many of the fans of the group also exhibit affinity for other pop artists such as Justin Bieber, or Ariana Grande. There has been a certain Brazilian anti-Pop and negative reception towards the band, with a particular aversion to the apparel and fashion of the band.
