Minimal Joy is an italian project, born around 2012 in Bologna. Actually they are a 5-pieces-band: Roberto Greco (lyrics, guitars, synth, backing vocals), Silvia Barbarinaldi (voice, synth), Andrea Milelli (guitars), Chiara Lorenzini (bass, backing vocals) and Leone Dragone (drums). After self-produced “Loopsided” Ep – here we have first official album “Cold Kiss” (artwork by cartoonist Roberta Muci), born after a crowdfunding campaign.
Title-track introduce us in a dark-atmosphere, something change in When The Rain Come Down, pure alt-rock also In The Mirror and Cryin’ Blues, dreamy-melodies in Cigarettes After Lunch and lovely one Dark, Sweet, Tender, Violence with a bit of 90’s slacker attitude. A promising debut album, listen below.
