Lecce, Italy’s Bistouries debut with two sides that heavily nod to the melodic jangle of late ’70s UK power pop.
Dedicated to Kim Fowley, these songs take you back to a time when punk was not so readily defined. “Time to Have Fun” blends early Elvis Costello and Nick Lowe with a touch of surf rock for a gentle celebration of hard work. On the flipside, “Wide Hipped Girls” gets a little gritty with a solid Jam punch. It’s a hook-laden platter of memorable riffs, harmonies and solid songs.
As time passes, Italy’s music scene continues to grow. Dip your toe into the pool. You might like it.
