New Candys (Venice, Italy)
“Mixing brooding psychedelia with post-punk stylings, the record captures the full intensity of their live show with devastating results.”
– Drowned In Sound
“The new record, Bleeding Magenta, I can’t recommend it enough.”
– KEXP’s John Richards
“Sounding like a mix of Tame Impala and Temples if they were to cross over to the dark side.”
– Orange Amplification
Described as dark modern rock’n’roll, the band combines noisy, brooding sounds with distinct melodies while displaying a dynamic and symbiotic connection between their music and meticulously crafted visual imagery. The band consists of Fernando Nuti on vocals and guitar, Andrea Volpato on lead guitar, Alessandro Boschiero on bass and Dario Lucchesi on drums. Their latest LP “Bleeding Magenta” was released by Fuzz Club and repressed by Portland based label Little Cloud Records last year. Some of their songs are featured on episodes of Showtime Networks original TV series “Shameless”.
New Candys’ 2018 USA debut tour included a live performance on KEXP and shows in New York, down the West Coast and Mexico. This was preceded by their fourth European and first Australian tour, where they headlined both Sydney and Melbourne Psych Fest. They recently supported The Brian Jonestown Massacre on their Italian tour.
New Candys will be hitting the road in 2019, Europe and North America back to back with 50 shows in less than two months, the last tours before a new record so you can expect some surprises in the setlist!

If you didn’t know these guys were from Chicago, you’d assume they’re a bunch of Brits, with their insanely Britpop-influenced sound and their unusual spelling of colour, but the Windy City exports manage to capture the soul of the UK in the late ’90s/early ’00s and mix in a good amount of Psychedelia for a sound all their own. Ample amounts of fuzz and pop combine to sound something like if The Stone Roses and The Black Angels decided to mate, and their offspring is something to be cherished. After heading back to Dripping Springs, TX and recording their fourth full length LP at Dandy Sounds Studios with engineer/producer Dan Duzsynski, Dream Dream (release date 7/7/17) relishes on the current level of the demand on society to rely on their screens, devices, and multi-media influence. Dream Dream takes its musical cues from indie, pop, psychedelia, and garage rock, captivating listeners through a myriad of melodies that make up Secret Colours signature sound. Songs like “Changes in Nature” and “Pins and Needles” are homages to their influences while “Feed the Machine” delivers a pounding vibe of bass with an attitude of 70’s London. Secret Colours are eager to support the release of Dream Dream and continue to expand their ever evolving sound.
Ascend yourself into the blanketing incense smoke and celestial grooves that is Dead Feathers. Like the Night sky, this band is noting below a breath of fresh air. With melodic female Vocals and the Fuzz driven riffs you might as well be seeing the fortune teller herself when you see this band live. This band takes hold of you and does not let you go. Dead Feathers has shared the stage with countless Chicago bands and touring bands from all over North America alike. A group heavily influenced by rock bands of the 60’s and 70’s and the underground Psychedelic bands of today. They are currently in the process of recording their first full length album and playing in venues across Chicago.
