ANY OTHER (Italy)
riyl Waxahatchee, Big Thief, Girlpool
And now what, should I quit playing? This is what Adele Nigro, now 21 years old, puzzled over an year ago, trying to deal with a past that just went off with her old band and with a future still to be written. But Adele doesn’t quit, and this is how Any Other is born, together with Erica Lonardi and Marco Giudici, with an indie rock attitude that will bring you to the 90’s of Modest Mouse and Built to Spill, but also to contemporary songwriters like Waxahatchee. In their debut album, “Silently. Quietly. Going Away” (out on Bello Records, 2015), you will find stories about growing up, difficult separations, and a strong desire for taking revenge on the bad things that happen in our lives.
THE HOMESICK (Netherlands)
riyl: Deerhunter, Preoccupations, Rats On Rafts
Since the release of their first EP three years ago, when the boys were not yet old enough to order beer, their pop has developed into something more daring, noisy and experimental. Selected Dutch and British media are already hooked, while the band’s debut LP is just about to be released.
