QUERCIA (alternative punk // sardegna // https://quercia.bandcamp.com)

I Quercia nascono quasi per caso a 60 km da Cagliari nei primi mesi del 2016, fanno una roba tipo alternative rock parecchio influenzato dal punk italiano, e un po' da altre mille cose insite nei differenti background dei singoli componenti. Pubblicano il 7 Settembre 2016 il loro primo disco indipendente "Non è vero che non ho più l'età", otto tracce intrise di distorsioni e nostalgia per venti minuti di pensieri a voce alta.

FRANA ((noise rock / Milano / https://franafrana.bandcamp.com)

Frana is a noise rock/post-punk four-piece hailing from Milan (Italy). The band is comprised of Luca Tadini (guitar, vocals), Francesco Scazza (bass), Francesco Brancato (guitar) and Michele Quinzani (drums). They play an energetic, pummelling, nervous, spiraling, noisy post-punk. They also talk a great deal of nonsense and goofy jokes. Their sound is a dissonant yet always melodic concentrate of ardent vocals, abrasive guitars, roaring bass lines and restless drumming. Angular, often odd rhythmics evolve into open crunchy guitar assaults with agile riffing, leaping through unsteady moods, seismic bursts and thoughtful slowdowns. Edgy stuff much like Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu, Shellac, Polvo, Unwound, Don Caballero, Unsane, Slint, Jesus Lizard, Quicksand, Haram, Greys, Meat Wave, Pile. Frana literally stands for landslide, but it’s also italian jargon for a hopeless person. Multiple meanings, multiple feelings. FRANA past releases include the EP *** (self-released) in 2013, the EP Odds And Ends released on one-sided 12’’ vinyl (Il Verso Del Cinghiale, Munich Punk Shop, Neat is Murder) in 2015, and the 7’’ split record with Opiliones in 2016 (Munich Punk Shop, Frammenti Di Un Cuore Esploso, Antena Krzyku). All releases are distributed in Italy by Shove Records and in Germany by X-Mist.
