ABOUT THE RELEASE
Raise is Le BelvE’s first album, born by the need of an emotional dimension to be expressed: one that grows within the musicians’ young, life-thirsty and naive souls. Their music is tangled yet involving, where the grungy melodies and spicy harmonies of vocals and guitar are woven together with the subversive sharpness of the rhythmics.
The word “raise” in Italian indicates growth and it also means « roots » in the dialect spoken in the hills of where they come from: they grew up in a land made of rustling hills and monolithic factories. A land of sweat and abstraction, fever and roots. A music drawn by urban and bucolic elements; as well as mineral and floral, youthful and mysterious.
On these a shrub of plump fruits grow, where a hidden beast sleeps.
Le BelvE is a duo shaped by Francesco Tapparo (guitar and vocals) and Leonardo Ferrari (drums). They have been playing together as a duo since 2014. Their friendship grew from the common passion for blues and increased, surrounded by chalky hills, thanks to rehearsals, concerts, hard work and playing on the side of the street. Thus they began their journey to the unknown.
Recorded, mixed and mastered by Federico Viola in AnimalHouse Studio, Ferrara (IT).
