Regular price $ 22.00 $ 0.00

Green Noise Records exclusive: clear blue vinyl.



Wonderful record from this Italian outfit, somewhere between NRBQ and Shoes, Rachel Sweet and Lou Ann Barton, the gloss of 1970s power pop with a bit of the grit of old R&B (and the Detroit Cobra)...equal parts of Buddy Holly and 1960s girl group, those two sounds far enough apart that these possible (maybe twice removed) influences blend to create something else (something that does not sound like the 1950s or 1960s)...a stroll along the edge of summer...or a brisk winter day when the sun is trying to burn through the baby-blue haze and warm the sand...on the beaches of places like North Carolina, Los Angeles, Coney Island, Corpus Christi, or Brighton. -- winch


It all started as a solo/side project of singer/guitarist Astrid Dante: inspired by her recent discovery of late 70’s obscure Power-Pop gems, she recorded her rock’n’roll songs with a drum machine and a fake band. During one of the punk-rock shows booked by bass player Franz Barcella, she partied so hard she broke her heels. That night though, she found a real band excited to back her up and tour the world. Since then, two full-length records (the first one with their power-pop dream label, Screaming Apple), many 7” singles, more tours, parties, food discoveries, small stages, big stages, no stages, big crowds, no crowds, played with bands they had posters on their teen walls, infinite drives, injuries, broken vans, planes, many failures, great satisfactions. 

They’re one of those bands forever in between. Too pop for punks, too punk for pop.  Their sound is a mixture of Sixties Beatles-esque melodies, sunshine-pop atmospheres, punk attitude, country, rhythm and blues, surrounded by dreamy landscapes, folk-revival lyricism and sometimes even bordering on psychedelia. All the records they grew up with, or bought during their travels, are in the cocktail.  

'Storms', their brand new full-length record, is a step forward to this brave non-concept concept. A labor of DIY, recorded by their former drummer Brown Barcella and Alessio Lonati, produced and mastered by their best friend Riccardo Zamboni and released on their own Wild Honey Records.

 

“A band who could whip up a great power pop hook in their sleep – though they harbored emotional centers that weren’t just soda pop and Saturday night. “
-       Eric Davidson, singer, New Bomb Turks; author, We Never Learn: The Gunk Punk Undergut, 1988-2001
