The Italian response to TOUCHÉ AMORÉ and LA DISPUTE brings Screamo back to the musical realm map and at the same time delivers in a damn orderly fashion. This is the first time that we have been able to hear DIY coming out of every pore, and it'll make your heart beat faster. The ten songs, which AMALIA BLOOM published in 2022, will not leave anyone unmoved. What the band's singer Tommaso has to say on this album is important! It's a sign that emo, screamo, or as far as I'm concerned, post-hardcore in Europe is anything but dead. Perhaps there is also a little bit of YAGE when it comes to the band from northern Italy with 'Picturesque'. The bands chamber is full and if all goes well, we'll see AMALIA BLOOM on our in Europe again soon.

Hello again, DEAR GET UP KIDS! It seems that you have been playing your shows in Barcelona and leaving an impression. Such a lasting impression that MINOR PLANETS have cut off a slice of you. This debut EP of the Spaniards sounds incredibly beautiful, and rather like the band from Kansas City. This doesn't detract in any way from the six songs though. And in the end, that's why 'Neverending Days' is so special and fun. It may not all sound original, but it is great. You can tell that MINOR PLANETS have their hearts in the right place. (and above all have listened to just the right bands for a long time)
