Close to Dean Blunt and Mica Levi, the mysterious trio signs marvelous pieces that revisit the 90’s.
Most of the time, you have to follow your instincts. Especially in music. Barely the piece Banks found at random in wanderings, the heart strains. The 1990s are revisited to the full, but without pastiche, with a clarity of the melody at the peak, tender but grating at the armholes. Behind him, a group, Bar Italia who has made identity mist his signature.
No interviews, no speeches, nothing. Let’s content ourselves with their music, distilled on two albums, Quarrel (2020), Bedhead (2021) and several very strong singles, like the last one, Polly Armor. The insane producer Dean Blunt is not far away since their albums were released on his label, World Music, and we find him featuring on We were ALL rooting for you.
Little sensation of today’s underground London
Photos gleaned from the internet show a trio, led by a woman, Nina Cristante, visual artist and musician originally from Rome and now based in the United Kingdom. Double Virgo would also be there. Bar Italia is also close to Mica Levi/Micachu, author of the film’s soundtrack Under the Skinwho invited them during a carte blanche on NTS in April 2021.
A small sensation of today’s underground London, Bar Italia will perform live Thursday, December 15 at the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection, as part of the Inrocks Festival, in the first part of Martin Rev. Excitement.
