Hailing all the way from Italy comes our latest Band Spotlight, Amycanbe, whose music is fully of synth dreaminess. The band has been at it since the early 2000s, but with the addition of new members, their sound has evolved slightly over the years. The material they originally released was more acoustic and timid due to the lack of drums and bass. According to band members, their music’s soul came out during their second EP entitled “The World is Round” which was based on Gertrude Stein’s poem “Sacred Emily.” For this EP, they pushed themselves outside of their comfort zones and incorporated instruments and techniques they hadn’t employed in previous years. The product was definitely something they should be proud of!
When playing live, Amycanbe attempts to pretty faithfully recreate the sound of their recorded material. However, their sound engineer would tell you with much frustration that the band likes to switch up the instruments while performing. One of their most memorable shows took place at Santarcangelo dei Teatri, a well-known theatre near their hometown. In the exact moment of silence before an instrumental outro, a random fan jumped on stage and yelled something along the lines of “”YYAYYAUAUAAAYYAA!!!!” into the mic. Little did he know that his timing was perfect, and made the night more memorable for everyone involved.
