What, Really? is an indie band from Brennero in Italy comprising Ale, Manga, Robbé and Paz.
Very easy on the ears, What, Really? is more importantly a quartet who is able to take the plain and add toppings of tastiness. The band who introduce themselves as power-pop were inevitably listened to with ears uninterested and the opening few bars of the first track of their debut EP certainly didn’t fill me with much more enthusiasm. Perseverance paid off and I came to the meat and grist of the music, which is blend of pop ballads, combined with brit-pop and american indie-pop and the combinations make sense.
What, Really? place store on the clean lines of the vocals and manage to add some entertaining guitar effects to provide music which does hold the attention of the audience. Just over a year into their existence the music is undoubtedly a sound that resonates across the audiences, with appearances across Italy and an appearance in the UK. A line-up change in September 2013 will allow the band to add more depth to the out-put.
Not for my everyday playlist, but I am quite certain What, Really? will appear on other peoples, once they have had the opportunity to hear the music.
