Stella Diana: Nitocris (2016)

Si hay algún lugar en el mundo en el que nunca esperarías encontrar a una banda Shoegaze, ése sitio es Nápoles. Pues bien, Stella Diana son napolitanos y su sonido es decididamente Shoegazer. Aunque, eso sí, su espíritu es absolutamente cosmopolita y universal. 
Su muro de sonido tiene que ver tanto con bandas de los noventa como a pioneros aparecidos en la década anterior: de hecho uno de los temas del álbum se titula Psychedelic Furs. Llevan ya un par de discos, pero seguro que para muchos son todo un descubrimiento, que por supuesto no deberías perderte.

“Hailing from a city more known for pizza and opera than shoegaze and new wave addicts, Stella Diana possess not only the spirit of late 80s/early 90s British bands like Ride, but also the dark wave seeds of Joy Division and the stylistic underpinnings of new wave artists like Psychedelic Furs and The Chameleons, all of whom number among the band’s influences. Others include Pale Saints, Lush, Catherine Wheel, The Stone Roses, Codeine, Christian Death, and Talk Talk.
Since their inception in 1998, Stella Diana has gradually become recognized by the Italian press as one of the best shoegaze bands in the country with their intricate, brooding and textured mix of shoegaze, post-punk, dreampop and new wave. They have managed to grow a sizeable international following despite singing entirely in Italian – an unprecedented achievement for an Italian indie band in these respective genres.
According to Italian portal, Stella Diana produces music “that sounds like shoegaze no one has ever made in Italy”. Italian tastemaker sees Stella Diana as trailblazers “not only because it is very difficult to find another shoegaze band in Italy so compelling, but also because they manage to perfectly blend the dreampop concept with walls of distortion and the Italian language”, noting that “it is virtually impossible to find another band like this in Italy” (Press-Bandcamp)
