The "Research EP" marks the first offering from the ever-growing
Roman outfit Passione Nera.
Originally conceived by Andy in the dying days of 2005, it would
not be until the spring of the following year that the band took
its first steps, and embarked on a journey that would eventually
see the project evolve into a 4-piece band (by early 2007).
Initially, the songs were stripped-down acoustic guitar
compositions with the occasional addition of piano, accordion or
organ. However, as the band grew and expanded, the songs were
redefined and their sound changed.
Today, Passione Nera has evolved from a folk-pop creature into a
fully-fledged chamber-pop ensemble. The band keeps one watery
alcoholic eye fixed on the cinematic tradition, with melodic
landscapes that are dusty and melancholy. These melodious scenes
are then wrapped up in lush, orchestrated songs with acoustic
and electric guitars taking the center stage, and additionally
enhanced by a large array of other instruments. It is as if
these songs were written on the backs of 1960s postcards brought
back from some imaginary journey into "Americana", then bred
with French-pop, cross-fertilized with baroque-pop, and finally
molded into a soundtrack for the broken-hearted, the
disenchanted and the misunderstood.
The "Research EP" features appearances by Simone "Hellvis"
Salvatori (guest vocals on "Sinking"), and Piergiorgio "PJ"
Ambrosi (additional arrangements and co-production) of older
brothers Spiritual Front, and will be released as digipak
CD-single and limited 7" vinyl.
