Il Parto delle Nuvole Pesanti
4 Battute Di Poverta
I'd like to start this review translating the name of the band:
"The delivery of the heavy clouds" ... it definitely helps to
imagine what huge load of energy they can put in their music,
They play a combat-folk, mostly acoustic, but in the way of
punk, helped by fiddles, bozoukis, tambourines and a wonderful
accordion that obliges to dance madly when it's on!
This is their 3rd work and I think it's their best, after
two nice but undervalued CDs and a big freaky band, made up
of a group of close friends who met at university, that maybe
choked down their creativity and their need of expressing their
own feelings, now exploded through the power of their notes and
their simple and plucky lyrics.
In my opinion they absolutely deserve more than the
"underground Italian music scene" offer them. Anyway I'm sure they'll
never give up fighting for their ideals, playing wherever they
can with the same strong passion!
