Description:

London's hottest new band, Bar Italia, releases its second and latest album in 2023! Following their critically acclaimed debut for Matador, "Tracey Denim," London-based Bar Italia, consisting of Nina Cristante, Jezmi Tariq Fehmi, and Sam Fenton, has released their second album in 2023, "The Twits. The Twits" was released in 2023. The Twits was recorded over an eight-week period beginning in February 2023 at a temporary home studio in Mallorca and mixed by Marta Saloni. Bar Italia is known for its simple yet lyrical songwriting, but this changes on this album, which is boisterous, mysterious, unrestrained, and even sinister at times. The extreme, strange, and exhilarating rock songs include "my little tony" with its addictive riff and exciting hook, the cathartic "world's greatest emoter," and the psychedelia created by "Hi-Fiver. There are also moments when the dramatic developments created by the band's signature three-piece configuration move into uncharted territory.Cristante, Femi, and Fenton develop different melodies, moods, and beats, sometimes overlapping and linear, sometimes diverging unexpectedly. It is a teamwork rooted in their shared language and friendship that often takes place in the short time span of 30 seconds. For example, "Jelsy" unfolds like a conversation between friends, set to a sad-sounding country blues, with alternating voices that are both comforting and bitterly, hopelessly sad. The supple, slow-burning waltz of "twist" stands out for its naked lyrics and seems to invite confessions from each member. While the previous album, "Tracey Denim," was characterized by compact, two- to three-minute compositions, this album includes horizontal, terminal pieces like "Shoo," a solo that sways like a wave and can be heard in a seedy bar, to a pulsating, two-note piano piece that transitions into its demise. Through playful twists and turns, "glory hunter" ends up in a very different place than where it started.Real house wibes (desperate house vibes)" and "que surprise" foreshadow a noirish disaster of sleepless nights, while "sounds like you had to be there" offers one of the sweetest and most optimistic musical expressions in the band's history. the sweetest and most optimistic musical expression in the band's history. The final track, "bibs," is a rare example of all three members in unison, with ethereal chords and cutting feedback that round out the most adventurous and fulfilling set to date.
