Parkwave from Cosenza in Italy is the indie-rock quartet of Mattia (Drums), Fernando (Vocals / Guitar), Ilario (Lead Guitar) and Raffo (Bass).
It is immediately evident on hitting play that Parkwave consists of experienced musicians as although the band is only about a year old, they have the confidence of more seasoned players.
Inevitably my focus is on a resounding rumbling bass / drum combination which sets the scene for the tracks, around this sensation the two guitars swirl like soaring seagulls on the eddies and thermals, whilst the vocal articulates the layers. The audience finds themselves tapping out the beats as the up-tempo music bounces across the room in tightly woven sequences.
Parkwave are establishing themselves on the live circuit and for those unable to get to see them live a four track EP Blow in/out was released at the end of April and a single Inside that came out in March.
I look forward to hearing more of the band and given the start I would expect many others will also get to hear the compositions by Parkwave.
