Effortlessly cool outfit bar italia has quickly risen to be London’s most exciting new band. Their dissonant yet irresistibly hooky rock, released via Dean Blunt’s World Music label, has recieved the kind of hype traditional guitar music rarely experiences nowadays. The trio joined forces in late 2019, and when holed up together during the pandemic, threw themselves into making 'catchy, good songs' – a goal they've unquestionably achieved. Drenched in nostalgic reverb, the band amalgamates elements of goth, shoegaze, grunge, post-punk, nu-metal and even Britpop into their fuzz-laden riffs and haunting vocals. We have one thing to say: Long Live Indie Sleaze.
