A psychedelic record skipping visual entrance into this fuzzy indie rock act. Antonioni “Easy Listener” features lots of wonderful chord tensions and introspective lyrics presented by a strong female lead Sarah Pasillas. The act is for fans of; Japanese Breakfast, Alvvays, Great Grandpa, and Broken Social Scene. The song features driving rhythms until the three minute mark where after a full band crescendo Antonioni sends it into a psychedelic dream as the vocals go through delays that give the section an ethereal atmospheric sound that puts me as a listener into a place of nostalgia. Antonioni “Easy Listener” is fuzzy indie rock you’re going to want to listen to.
More on Antonioni:
“Seattle band Antonioni is back with a new EP, The Odds Were All Beating Me – Out January 10th 2019 on Den Tapes
The release is the band’s most expansive and sonically ambitious to date. The tracks showcase vocalist and guitarist Sarah Pasillas’ evocative lyricism and proficient songwriting. Meanwhile, the band departs from the languid jangle-rock of their first EP Lullablaze and dives into harder hitting, psychedelic grunge pop territory. Out via Den Tapes on January 10th, the album boasts three singles and music videos.
The Odds Were All Beating Me was produced and mixed by Rick Hoag and mastered by Levi Seitz (Jenn Champion, Pearl Jam). Inspired by sci-fi literature, surrealist films, and personal mythology, the EP consists of five songs carefully examining the internal peaks and valleys of coping with anxiety and uncertainty in a chaotic world. The EP is the band’s first fully collaborative effort.
The Grey Estates deemed the band’s EP, Lullablaze, as: “a step into the heart of something astounding.” In November NorthWest Music Scene wrote that the upcoming EP “builds on the momentum that Lullablaze stoked and takes the music to another level. The intricate guitar stylings, once again, meld seamlessly with the vocals for a rockin’ dream-pop mixture that should further cement Antonioni’s place in the genre.”
In their short career, Antonioni has generated a healthy regional buzz while supporting acts like Spirit Award, Whitney Ballen, and Jo Passed (Sub Pop) and playing Seattle’s DIY music festivals like BIG BLDG BASH.
