"Picturesque" is the new album by Italian emo hardcore band AMALIA BLOOM, a wide-ranging work in which the band finds a new balance between melody and harsher sounds. A record dedicated to their beloved yet suffered city, an outlet with which the band gains momentum and reacts to the last two years spent in isolation.
AMALIA BLOOM is five friends with their feet firmly planted in their hometown Vicenza, their heads turned overseas, towards the American scene of the 90s and 00s, with broken hearts in between. Their music results in a peculiar mix of punk rock, hardcore and emo through which they search for a personal, overwhelming and visceral sound, combined with nostalgic lyrics, screamed and whispered with energy, strength and intimate passion.
The band released their first album Maiden Voyage in 2019, distributed on CD, vinyl and cassette worldwide by Engineer Records. In 2020 they released the single At Eternity's Gate and in 2021 the acoustic EP Alive, a ballet.
AMALIA BLOOM are Tommaso Capitello (vocals), Ettore Pernigotti (guitar and backing vocals), Federico Ceretta (guitar and backing vocals), Antonio Donà (bass) and Stefano Rigo, (drums).
AMALIA BLOOM are on a European tour, and always looking for more gigs
