Out Now!! Unruly Girls - "Epidemic"
Epidemic is the brand new album for Unruly Girls, released on April 21st, 2020 on newborn Dirty Beach Recs. The album has been mixed and mastered by Phil Liar at Monolith Recording Studio in Vitulano (Benevento, Italy).
Compared to their first album Cruel Tales (2017), the sound is darker, charged with emotions and psycological nuances. Powderous bass lines, acid synths and spacey drumming are the perfect scenery for their garage r'n'r mayhem.
The title, Epidemic, was chosen at early stages, inspired by the way music can spread beauty into the world, sweetly and deeply connecting people and nurturing new movements and ideas.
In a continuous flow, the tracks float between punk electronic, noisy rock vibes and funk rhythmics, while lyrics might seems labyrinths free to wander, in search of uncatchable meanings.
For fans of: Sonic Youth, Primal Scream, The Cramps, Stereolab.
All songs by Unruly Girls except Black Love written by Johnny Jay.
All lyrics by Humbert Alison except Black Love written by Johnny Jay, Chanson Massacre by Maria Pia Santillo and She Grew up in a Shotgun Row by Ronit Bergman and Humbert Alison.
Unruly Girls is a duo project from Benevento: Luigi Limongelli and Humbert Alison work close together in composition, producing and recording, while Humbert is the one bringing it to the crowds as a one man show.
Their debut album Cruel Tales (July 2017), was totally home produced, and has been recognised as a stunning and more than promising debut.
The band's name was inspired by The Smiths' "Barbarism Begins at Home", with Morrissey singing: "Unruly boys who will not grow up must be taken in hand, Unruly Girls who will not settle down they must be taken in hand".
Of course irony and ambivalence are basic ingredients here.
With more than 100 concerts in Italy and Europe, and a growing interest from audience and press, Unruly Girls are ready to share their allucinatory and raw vision with this brand new world.
