Milan-based indie-rockers The Ghibertins return with the release of their anthemic new single 20149 - Milano, out now via Mob Sound Records. Today Xs Noize is pleased to exclusively premiere the video for the track.
The single is oozing with sonic twists and turns from the offset. Sweeping guitar twangs are met with pulsating drums beats and orchestral soundscapes in order to create a sound that is undeniably palpable. Frontman Alessio Hofmann’s distinctive vocal is at the forefront throughout, channelling the likes of Editor’s Tom Smith.
Talking about the single, Alessio explains, “while the band was working on the album, I went on a solo trip to Guangzhou, China. After a couple of weeks, I began to develop a certain sense of alienation. One evening I wanted to find the feelings I needed to feel in order to write the track that represents the fall of the main character, so I took a piece of paper, a pen and rushed through the streets of Taojin. Drink and drink again! This was the goal. Why 20149 - Milano? The next day I found on my piece of paper, 20149 written obsessively over and over again. 20149; my home zip code.”
