Una torbida estate” is where Roma Amor have particularly conveyed their love for movie soundtracks from 70’s erotic, thrilling, action or exotic film music to minimalist score themes. Roma Amor create a sort of cinematic atmosphere with their typical emphasis on deep romantic lyrics, Euski’s catchy deep melodies with harmonic figures in different vocal lines and Candela’s repetitive accordion patterns developped through small melodic cells. The lyrics follow the heart’s beating rhythms and the soundscapes of the music, featuring loads of sentimental feelings influenced by Emily Dickinson, Italo Calvino, Antonia Pozzi, Mogol with the accent on love and sensual themes.
The musical texture is enriched by some special guests:
- the violinist Matt Howden, remarkable for his use of looped strings in “Inverno”
- Matteo Carnio’s electric guitar with his very special touch in the title track, as well
as in “Battiti”, “A Tus Besos”, “Lies” and "Il Cuore"
- Maestro Zabberoni, the man with the harmonica in “Der Treue Husar” and “Amster-
dam” and with his flamenco guitar in “Mucho Mas Que Ayer”
- brother Andrea Candela at the drums and Mirko at the piano in “Tu…Ancora Tu”.
The tracklist includes original songs written by the duo Euski-Candela, with lyrics in differen languages (Italian, Spanish, English, German), a rarefied version in three languages of the traditional song “Der Treue Husar” (love lost on the Italian front - to commemorate the cen-tenary of Italy entering the First World War) and Jacques Brel’s Amsterdam, that was oftenincluded in Roma Amor’s live-sets, now for the first time on CD. The 4th studio album is once more a ‘voyage’ into far sensations of a retro world, mediter-ranean atmospheres and loads of sentimental feelings. Sounds for a very hot summer, wild kisses, lies and love. Noir-Pop as only Roma Amor are able to deliver...
