Hailing from Venice, Italy, NEW CANDYS formed in 2008. Described as dark modern rock’n’roll, the band combines noisy, brooding sounds with distinct melodies and has developed a notably dynamic and symbiotic connection between their music and meticulously crafted visual imagery. The band consists of Fernando Nuti, Andrea Volpato, Alessandro Boschiero and Dario Lucchesi. Released in 2012, their first studio album ”Stars Reach The Abyss”, mastered by Jon Astley, brought the band on tour in England and Italy. The song "Meltdown Corp." was included in the annual compilation “The Reverb Conspiracy”, co-released by the highly revered independent label Fuzz Club and The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). In 2015 their second studio album “As Medicine”, mixed by John Wills of Loop, was released through Picture In My Ear and Fuzz Club and distributed by The Committee To Keep Music Evil.

Be Forest
Be Forest
In the spring of 2011 Be Forest's debut album, Cold, was released, causing an earthquake among the music press in Italy and abroad. Music zines started buzzing about the "Pesaro-scene": a town on the Adriatic coast of Italy that gave birth to bands such as Soviet Soviet, Altro, and Brothers in Law. The Pesaro-movement brought out sharp sounds, chilly atmospheres, and new energies. Be Forest was born as a trio: the already mentioned guitarist, Nicola, was joined by Erica Terenzi on drums and vocals and Costanza Delle Rose on bass and vocals. For this sophomore album, Earthbeat, the band gained the services of Lorenzo Badioli, who takes care of the new electronic parts of Be Forest's sound. If with Cold, their sound was characterized as "dark", with Earthbeat the sun seems to have risen, brightening the Riviera. Be Forest's melodies have always had a dreamy lightness as their striking feature, but now it is possible to feel a new warmth. Take for example "Captured Heart," which echos intimate percussions and flutes, or "Colours," that manages to combine an hypnotic progression with ethereal form, or again take the idyll of Hideaway, austere and romantic at the same time.

A soft touch between the classic 4AD and the more recent XX, a new and involved liveliness is heard in Be Forest's sound. It's no surprise that Earthbeat, recorded in Pesaro by Paolo Rossi at Studio Waves, was completely produced by the band itself. After the excitement made by their debut album, people started wondering where Be Forest's talent would go: Earthbeat is the best answer we could ever expect.
