Track Of The Day: Achilla
Take a Hungarian singer, Martamaria, and an Italian guitarist, Daniele Panza. Add in just-recruited bassist Gus Macricostas and drummer Vicenzo Infusino, then you have one of the most fascinating and enticing bands on the London scene right now. Check out previous Tracks Of The Day.
…Yes, London, because this is the base for these four European musicians. A quartet who’ve successfully fused Kate Bush with Nightwish, Radiohead with Iron Maiden.
It all makes for a unique, visionary style and approach that’s starting to get this young band noticed.
So far, gigs have been comparatively low-key, but the buzz and interest is growing. Martamaria’s extraordinary range (which has seen her cited in the Guinness Book Of Records) and Panza’s fluid and confident playing are the fulcrum.
But as they prove on our Track Of the Day, titled Arashi, this band have a combined depth and clarity that could make them a big, big noise. Yet they’re also adept at delivering gentle, inspired acoustic performances.
