Blue Willa is the debut album by the Italian art rock quartet bearing that same name.
Due for release in early 2013, the album is produced by Californian musician Carla Bozulich (Evangelista, The Geraldine Fibbers, Scarnella, Ethyl Meatplow), who directed the shaping, recording and mixing of every song. She also contributed singing and playing on many tracks. This happened in Italy, India and Paris during the spring of 2012.
The band had been touring and recording for years under the name “Baby Blue”, but the time had come to change form. Thus the new name: Blue Willa. These new eleven songs are driven by Serena Alessandra Altavilla’s haunting vocals, which flutter and overlap with Mirko Maddaleno’s mournful singing and edgy guitar playing. This dizzy architecture is held together by the robust, althought sparse, rhythm scores by bass player Lorenzo Maffucci and drummer Graziano Ridolfo.
