DENIS THE NIGHT & THE PANIC PARTY
Denis The Night & The Panic Party is an idiosyncratic collective born three years ago on the road across Italy and United Kingdom centred around the power trio of Ono Nora Fiorani, Nicola Sbrozzi and Alessandro Gobbi. Seeking musical freedom beyond songs, they started conceiving tridimensional landscapes and soundtracks for raves. Juxtaposing elements from various genres like psychedelia, shoegaze, pop noise, electro and avant-garde, they eschew traditional norms evolving into a music and visual arts collective, featuring other like-minded artists with a simpatico disaffection for conventions, Including photographer Giulia Delprato, visual artist Eddie Preti, Matteo Gaudenzi, Beatrice Pucci, film-makers Enzo Lauria and Karin El Taifiova. On the back of their previous releases, the Hottrips EP plus a self-titled Lo-fi Cassette EP, their stray, eclectic sound has already conquered important audiences, with Panic Party spreading across Europe including Primavera Sound Festival, BBC Introducing Live, Liverpool Sound City and MaMA Festival.
Their debut album Cosmic Youth, co-produced by the band and Livio Magnini of famed Italian band, Bluvertigo, was released at the end of last year by iconic UK label, Wall of Sound and it promptly charted in the top 20 in Italy and was No.1 Electronic album on iTunes Italy and in SE Asia. The remix of their first single Androgynous Love by über French DJ/producer, Étienne de Crécy continues to rack up more plays on streaming services and even reaching Spotify’s Viral Top 50 in France. Having brought their unique sound across the Atlantic for Canadian Music Week and a spring tour of Canada, they then played at Waves Vienna festival. The band is currently in studio working on their second album to be released in summer next year – but before that, they have been selected to play at SXSW!
