After thirteen years from their last album “Brevi Momenti di Presenza”, Italian cult band Anatrofobia comes back with a new release, the seventh one in their 30-year long career.

With some news this time. Starting from the line-up that alongside founders Luca Cartolari and Andrea Biondello, includes Cristina Trotto Gatta (already in Masche) who with her voice magically manages to enrich the sound of a traditionally instrumental band, and the punk soul and instruments of Paolo “Makhno” Cantù.

Critic Nazim Comunale said about them:

“Too cultured and cerebral for jazzcore, too punk for academic circles, too quiet for lovers of the more physical free, too intelligent for those who believe that a saxophone means necessarily jazz. Able to move with ease between shadows of contemporary and rock rust, in an unknown and not yet colonized middle ground.”
