Bar Italia: The Twits (indie shop edition/silver) LP

Availability: In stock

Bar Italia are the London based three-piece of Nina Cristante, Jezmi Tarik Fehmi and Sam Fenton. They will release their second full length of 2023, ‘The Twits’, on November 3, less than six months after their acclaimed Matador debut, ‘Tracey Denim.’

‘The Twits’ was recorded by the trio over eight weeks from February 2023 in a makeshift home studio in Mallorca, and was mixed by Marta Salogni. The thirteen new tracks find bar italia’s economical yet evocative songcraft taking raucous, mystic, unkempt, occasionally sinister, and wholly committed turns. Songs like “my little tony”, with its in-the-red riff and excitable hooks, the cathartic four-on-the-floor of ‘world’s greatest emoter’ and the festival tent psychede- lia of “Hi-fiver” need little in the way of exposi- tion – these are exhilarating rock songs, if wayward and strange.
