AmyCanBe – Everywhere and Truth be Told

Amycanbe live

Italian indie band Amycanbe keeps getting better and better.  Everywhere and Truth be Told are two of the band’s more recent tracks – both are excellent. Unlike many Italian bands, Amycanbe sings mainly in English realizing that by doing so, it extends its appeal virtually a million fold. While music sung in Italian is popular […]

Italian Indie Music – The Band Avvolte

Avvolte - versatile Italian indie band

Being an, oldish rocker, I like a little rousing rock music from time to time. Not much has been written about the Italian indie scene on BlogfromItaly.com recently after Icelandic indie music expert Guðjón Ingi Sigurðarson left Italy to return to his homeland.

So, off I went onto the Italian web to track down something which was, er, music to my ears, and within a few Google searches, I’d found some fresh Italian brewed indie music for you to have a listen to.

The Italian indie band I tracked down; I think that is almost a pun; is called Avvolte and here are two tracks of theirs.

Italian Indie Punk Rock from Italian Band – Les Fauves

Independent Italy – Part 2 – The Indie South

It appears that in my first article on Italian indie-music, I got a bit hasty when I said that the south of Italy didn‘t really have much good indie-music to offer. Well, since my first indie-music observations went online more than a few people have pointed out to me that the south of Italy shows lots of promise on the indie-music front.

Independent Italy – The Indie Music Scene in Italy

For reasons unknown, I had never let my mind wander towards something like Italian indie music. I guess that to me the idea of indie music in Italy got lost somewhere in amongst football, pizza, and Eros Ramazzotti.
