Andrea Pirro’s activity started under this name in 2005, firstly with acoustic guitar and piano, and afterwards, in 2007, a group of four members was formed and this four track EP has been recorded. The approach is trendy, a Dark Pop Folk with influences from the ‘60’s, where the normal voice perfectly harmonizes with electric guitar effects, piano and violin, not quite original but pleasant. If I also tell you that on the last track Simone Hellvis Salvatori participates as a guest, along with PJ Ambrosi, then I guess you realize that we are dealing with some sort of another kind of SPIRITUAL FRONT, in a more serene version and with a less imposing and resonant voice. The fragility of the sound gives me the sensation of a band filled with good intentions, yet somehow the style is not complete. In then end, doesn’t matter how the album is, “Strength In A Smile” is the most beautiful and representative track, and by far the most expressive one too for PASSIONE NERA. I can’t wait to listen to their debut album, which will be released soon!
