Rome, Italy’s Weird Bloom (previously Weird Black) release the new album odyssey of otherworldly audio adventures with Blisstonia. Luca di Cataldo’s band introduces the follow-up to their debut Hy Brazil describing the realization of the album as one big effort. “Our first album [Hy Brazil] was recorded in 10 days as a lo-fi and lo-budget experiment,” Luca described, “This time was different, we started to walk on a different path – I’m still on that path – made of chords and pop structures [that are] very hard to manage.” Luca, who during the recordings enjoyed the musical powers of Matteo Caminoli, Edoardo Castroni, and Diego Magnani, draw upon inspiration involving wizards & 1960s counterculture styles of sounds & visions that revolve around Italian 80s cartoons, television themes and more. Surrealistic images are built by the way they blend sentences to make new paths out of common expressions. “I had this idea of filling songs with melodies and parts taken from fairy tales and goofy cartoon TV themes and also wanted a modern result and coherence with the first album. […] The strong thread of our songs is always the same but a new language was necessary on the instrumental side. Matteo [percussionist] was very helpful for lyrics and backing vocals and I got the creative help of all the musicians during the recordings. We had to re-build our studio to develop these tracks.” Committed to their #stayweird philosophy of parallel reality colored by mystic visions, Weird Bloom will be presenting the new songs at Eurosnic Noorderslaag (ESNS2018) in Groningen, NL happening January 17-20, and in March at SXSW2018 in Austin, TX.
