Interview- ANDREA ZANZA

Intro: At the moment, he is probably known being active with the Italian trio dark wave act, NON.
ANDREA ZANZA, who decided to release solo album aswell, album that gave me, somehow, goosebumps and I was filled with emotions. I have talked with him before about NON, and seems to be the same story, a cinematic music, full of emotions and something personal.

 I was very surprised by your solo album. As told you before, you should really start making music for movies, because the sound of your music is very cinematic…!
Ok, I’m available, if any director or producer wants to offer me some work, I’m on the market!

“Dormire Sonni Tranquilli”, first, how do we translate it?
I guess the best translation could be “Sleep Peacefully”.

Tell me about the story behind this album.
Let’s say that it was an inner and personal need that pushed me to compose and publish this record, it was an idea that I had for a long time but I had to wait for the right moment to do it.

It’s a lot of, I would say, passion, feelings, something personal that you’re composing and reflecting in your music. This is what I hear in your music, emotions. Am I right?
Well, I think so. It’s an album that reflect my personality, even because i’ve composed and arrange the songs on my own, and except for the drum, the bass and the flute i’v played all the instruments and i don’t know if it’s good or not but this certainly makes it more personal.

And a mix of elements: dark wave, electronic, indie, synths, psychedelic, it’s a cocktail of elements…
Yes, and I also think folk music and italians songwriter’s typical elements. I listen to many different kind of music but the most important thing to me is that at in the end I have to make my personal kind of music.

Video premiere of Alms Of The Giant- ”Prevail”

Alms of the Giant premieres their new video ”Prevail”. The single song is taken from their new EP Oracles, which will be out on March 24th .

The vocalist Marco Gargantini says: Oracles’ is our second EP. We tried to create something louder and more complex than ‘Meet The Abyss’. The main theme of every song available in “Oracles” is the anger that we all experience when we fail to understand the actions, behaviour or thoughts of someone else, before realizing that, if we were in their shoes, we would probably acted the same way.
