Folk Wisdom, the new electronic sub-label of Interbang Records, and Bad Panda Records are pleased to announce the release of "Ages," the second album by Girl With The Gun.
As the title suggests, it is a record that has had a long gestation period, absorbing diverse stylistic inspirations throughout the writing process.
The dreamy and ethereal sound of the self-titled debut album has developed into being more strong and muscular with their sophomore effort.
The stylistic range of the trio has opened further, from more distorted ("Hold on for Cues", "Hover"), to Caribbean references ("Love far") and indie-rock stylings ("At all" sounds as if it could have been written by Kim Deal during her Breeders period).
The shoegaze influence, represented well on their debut by a collaboration with Slowdive's Simon Scott, remains and is evident in the reverberations of "Echo Alone" and the delayed feedback of "Long On."
"Ages" is a contemporary pop album with references ranging from the 50's to the present day.
The recording itself reveals a great attention to detail and a clever mix of both analog and digital.
It is truly an old record with a modern heart.
This record is supported by PUGLIA SOUNDS RECORD - PO FESR 2007/2013 ASSE IV - INVESTIAMO NEL NOSTRO FUTURO
Girl With The Gun initially form as a duo in Italy between 2006 and 2007. Matilde Davoli and Andrea Mangia aka Populous give life to this psychedelic electronic-folk project, redefining their musical past. She has years of electric guitar and sweet vocals behind her in the indie-pop band Studiodavoli. He' s breaking out from electronic experimentation on his other new project LIFE & LIMB. In 2008 they release their first self-titled work, with an abundance of collaborators that help the duo create a soundscape of dream and melancholy. Firstly, with the singer Giorgio Tuma (co-author of two songs), then with the former Slowdive's Simon Scott, Short Stories (the New York singer and Populous' "partner in crime") and the multi-instrumentalist James Banbury (ex-ofThe Auters and collaborator of U2 and Tricky). In 2010, the duo meet talented drummer Andrea Rizzo, who's already involved in many musical projects of national importance. The line up grows into three elements, and includes Andrea as an integral part of the band. They start the production and recording of their latest work to be released in 2013 on Bad Panda Records and Folk Wisdom. A broader, more arranged pop album.
