Luck,Now is a recently formed alt-rock band from Mantova in Italy. Initially formed as a duo – Manga and Vicky – now the live line-up of Gubba (Guitar / Backing Vocals), Ale (Vocals / Guitars / Synth), Vicky (Drums), Manga (Bass / Vocals) and Checo (Guitar / Backing Vocals).
Luck,Now express a pent up frustration that burns its way through the lightness of the material and this combination of mutinous bass and percussion, pairing with cheerful synth and bright guitar gives the out-put an immediate attraction, to which the commentariate vocal strides successfully between the disparate concepts.
Formed out of the ashes of What,Really?, Luck,Now have utilised the experience, to develop a more textured sound. In many ways minding of Californian new-wave in the late ’70s Luck,Now freshen up the influences to deliver music that connects with the ’10s with the combination of depressing realities which are unable to repress the buoyant optimism.
I have only had the opportunity to hear the début EP, released on the 24th – just another lucky start (available on bandcamp), which was recorded by the formation duo taking all the parts, so it will be interesting to hear follow-up material with the full line-up. Given the recording in isolation, Luck,Now is a band with far to travel in the world of music.
