The Italian band Partinico Rose introduced us their vey first album “Songs for Sad and Angry People.”
It was released last December, and it is loaded with a dark, energetic atmosphere, it is a record that everyone will enjoy since the first time of listening.
The album is full of great string arrangements and powerfull drums, the bass guitar involves the listener into a dark, sad, angry mood as the title refers, the lyrics reflect that sense of lost and the sensation of being reading your favorite Horror novel under the leaves of a big tree in a calm forest.
It remains me a lot the post punk from the 80’s, it combines the New Wave elements from that era, the influence of Goth Bands such as The Wake, Bauhaus, Killing Joke, and Sisters of Mercy set the elemnts to create this new and fresh sound.
No doubt these guys from Sicilia, have delivered a masterpiece, an iconic debut album.
