Maria Violenza I Capélli di Caténe LP
Capélli di Caténe
Post-Synthpunk from what could have been the sister of Christophe Clebard. Energetic synthlines touching chanson and minimal wave but way punkier then most contemporaries in that field. For lovers of Suicide, Carageenan, Clebard etc... Those whom love her seaming livegigs will dig this (and the split we carry) to bits.
"Capelli di Caténe" evokes the heavy, beautiful but cumbersome things that one would like to get rid of. Like its title, this new LP intertwines the animosity of one track with the melancholy or threats of another. It's a clash that tenderly hurts .
The album's atmosphere has a whiff of the Sabbath, of a heart violently torn out and generously offered on the altar of misery, reminding everyone that fate has a melody. Haunting and familiar, like Cristina's music.
Three years have passed since "Scirocco", in between Maria Violenza has done a split with Usé, another with Noir Boy George, and several projects as varied as her influences.
