There's a grave / severe mood living in these four songs, by Still Leven, young band from Genova, debut release on Imao in the Mouth rec.
While the diy / lo.fi production somehow affects the impact of the first two tracks, as i think, The Dreamer and The Long Talk After Mom Died, differently, are like immune to that, drawing a growing feeling, emotional and suffering an inner agony. Two gems. It's like They sing and tell of Disgrace and Grief, keywords of a black grey shaded world, and the male/female vocals are like the wedding promises in a ceremony celebrated in the middle of the desert during a sand storm, where the couple is Nick Cave and Siouxie Sioux, or their dirty offspring coupling against rules.
A mixture of declaiming early 80s new-wave and indie bitterness, like the violent visions of The Dreamer, - truly hypnotic - or the evocative flute intro in Just a Face in the Crowd, - a strong chemical formula for sure unusual in Italy, - something, hopefully, deserving Your full attention.

C'è un umore grave e severo che vive su tutte e quattro queste canzoni, a firma Still Leven, giovane band da Genova, pubblicazione debutto su Imao in the Mouth rec.
Mentre la produzione diy / lo.fi in qualche modo affetta a mio avviso l'impatto delle prime due tracce, The Dreamer e The Long Talk After Mom Died, differentemente, ne sono come immuni, e riescono a disegnare un crescente sentimento, emozionale e agonizzante nelle interiora. Due gemme. - E' come se cantassero e raccontassero di Disgrazia e Dolore, parole chiave di un mondo fatto di ombre grigie e nere, e le voci di Lui e Lei sono come le promesse di matrimonio dette in una cerimonia celebrata nel mezzo di una tempesta di sabbia nel deserto, dove la coppia è Nick Cave e Siouxie Sioux, o meglio, la prole che decide ugualmente di far coppia.
Una mistura di declamante new-wave primi anni 80 e amarezza indie, come la violenta confessione di The Dreamer, - sinceramente ipnotica, - o l'evocativa intro su flauto di Just a Face in the Crowd, - una forte formula chimica, per certo inusuale in Italia, qualcosa che qui si spera meriti la Vostra piena attenzione.
