“I write and play without ever leaving anything to chance”

Praino released his debut EP, Monsters, owls, per Mom Discs and distributed by Believe.

Praino has brought to light Monsters, owls while the outside world – along with billions of thin layers of the human psyche – was suddenly changing.
The Calabrian singer-songwriter, but transplanted to Bologna, relies on the need, which is very dear to him, to re-emerge from the emotional shell.

Multi-instrumentalist – he plays drums, guitar and bass – Praino he writes and plays for need, he records and records in the cellar, in his songs no sound is ever left to chance.

Monsters, owls it is a tortuous sound and narrative path but, at the same time, comfortable and recognizable, harsh and sweet like candy, made up of long silences alone and a big mess around. Rough and angular sounds, not usual but refined, which are not lost in too many kindnesses.

Praino tells:

“Each record is born first of all in the mind, from there it passes to the practical execution, but before getting there it overcomes a thousand filters and insecurities, here, this record is born from those insecurities, it draws strength from them. It was conceived and played alone in a set up cellar, everything started from the sounds with which I grew up, as a drummer and listener, grunge, the Italian alternative trend, and also the desire to sound like the first times as a boy. . So this sound, visual and narrative path that has been mine up to now is going to belong to everyone, I’m happy about it “.

The tracklist:

  1. I wish I was a forest
  2. It might be you
  3. Owl monsters
  4. Morderti
  5. Crisis
