Following on from the release of their 2017 EP which featured exalted single ‘Love Your Man’ Donnarumma have well and truly departed from their previous roots sound. The Adelaide trio come out swinging with the supercharged indie single ‘Alien’.
Full of angst and desperation, lyrics of a lonely soul desperate to be understood in the world today stand strong against distorted guitars and crashing drums “My friends don’t know, friends don’t know what I’m all about, I’m just an alien living in your fakeness ”. Lead singer Louis Donnarumma’s powerful and pained vocals and perfectly complement the harrowing emotions of the record and his incredible falsetto demonstrate his prodigious vocal ability.
A complete DIY set up the band recorded, mixed and produced the record completely independently. “There’s a special love for this song, we recorded at our home studio, self mixed and produced it. We did it our way, and we’re super stoked on it”. Louis Donnarumma
“Sassy and sensual, like if Kings of Leon kept playing in their garage and maintained that adolescent fury” – Hhhhappy Mag
“Hit Instantly with licks of Aracde Fire, The Killers and a local front, Gang of Youths, the music is delivered with lofty rock attitude” – The AU Review
“A sonic punch to the gut and heart” Music Feeds
“We had a ton of fun touring last year we thought we’ll do it again, stopping by Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne and finishing up a home town show in Adelaide. We also have a newly tradition of someone getting a tattoo on tour, should I get a butterfly, or a flower?? ”. Donnarumma
