Since March 10, is available in digital download and on all streaming platforms “TJS”, the debut album of the talented duo.
“In this adventure, we have tried to give more and more space to instinctivity and immediacy and this is perceived both in the harmonic and in the melodic part. In particular, melodies do not have a uniform line; indeed, the only thing that remains really constant is the magical direction of the impulses.
Even the texts are completely spontaneous, so that the meaning is at the mercy of each listener’s personal interpretation: ‘If we could return to prehistory with a time machine, giving guitar, distortion, fuzz, reverb and a microphone to a man of that time, our record would be the result. ‘”
Recording the album, in direct contact, has determined the sound frame that is the live performance, without any artifact or constraint. Twelve songs coming straight and true to the listener’s heart. At the heart of everything, the love and charm of the animal world, in its simplicity and indomitable whimsicalness.
The album was recorded and produced at Antonio Polidoro’s BlapStudio in Milan, but many people complete the team and contributed to the project. Sara Brasacchio, photos and videos,Valeria Traversi, who created the cover of the album and the graphics of the site and Chiara Zanetti, press office. Moreover, since this June, the TJS signed a contract with the booking agency Bagana Rock Agency.
