„FRAMES collects four different dream-images that we wanted to play and tell„. FRAMES is the new EP by the indie electro-rock trio Baobab Romeo, out on 10 June 10th, 2022 on the French independent label ADAT Records, led by the new single Earth, today available on all digital platforms. Active since 2013, Baobab Romeo is a trio formed by Mattia Bresciani (voice) and Davide Bianchera (bass, synth) from the band .Geisha. and Sebastiano Confetta (guitar, synth, mix) from Holiday in Arabia. The electronic rock attitude on stage of Mattia and Davide meets Sebastiano’s “studio“ electronic attitude.
FRAMES is the new chapter in a discography started with a first self-produced EP dating back to 2015 and the debut album HUM, dedicated to the theme of travel and released by Seahorse Recordings in 2018. The sound of Baobab Romeo is halfway between indie rock and electronics, opening up to pop, soul and jazz nuances, influenced by projects with a strong personality such as Arca, Eartheater, Yves Tumor and many others. „Our ideas start from a rhythmic or melodic input. Each of it is developed individually by each of us. Everything is then amalgamated during the recording phase. Even if we always lend a ’surgical‘ attention to sound research and arrangements, this new EP is more direct than HUM. We needed to enhance our communicative awareness„.
Starting from 2017, the three Italian musicians from Mantua collaborate with IUVENIS DANZA, a contemporary dance company, with performances and the realization of videoclips; the highlight of this collaboration was the participation at the Idaco Festival in New York. Over time, the band has played on the same stages with various important artists such as Rival Consoles. „We are passionate about literature, cinema, theater, and dance. When we write our songs, we like to think that the sound can be a kind of soundtrack for some images, but also for some bodies in motion; for this reason, our gigs are always accompanied by visuals or dancers and performers who help the audience to immerse themselves in our world„.
The first new single Earth is actually the last track of the EP and it’s about lust, the weirdest desires, the fantasies that make us unique. The single’s video, directed and edited by Bianchera, features the performer Alessia Sinato, belonging to IUVENIS DANZA and hidden behind a mask created by Francesca Maccari. „The video represents a person who suddenly is inside another body – of an animal, or a fantastic creature – and deals with related dreams and perversions“ .
