Planet Brain (Function Records)
OnlinePrintRadioPlanet Brain is a three-piece - Marcello Batelli (guitar, vocals), Nicola Zangrando (bass), Claudio Larese Casanova (drums). The band formed in 1999 and live between the Dolomites, North-East Italy.
They've been described as "melodic modern-day shoegazers" and their music has been named "sonic spaghetti", for their tendency to mix together enjoyable singing lines with prog-ish-psychedelic bits, and to go often from mellow parts to heavier climes. They released their debut album 'Compromises & Carnivals' in 2007, on Function Records and have played many huge festivals in their homeland such as Arezzo Wave, Territorio Musicale and Trieste Rock.
