Thirteen years after its last album, Fonderia comes back with Dinamo, fourth release of the band, anticipated by the singles Spike, Mojo Wire and Radio Burst.
Born in the mid ‘90s in Italy, as an improvising band, Fonderia has always been devoted to research and experimentation, mixing the most diverse styles, sounds and attitudes in a continuous evolution, where every album is a new step.
If My Grandmother’s Space Suit (Biz, 2010), the band’s third album recorded in the UK in the Real World Studios, was focused on “future nostalgia”, Dinamo’s major inspiration comes from science. It recounts a scenario dominated by technology, from biology to mechanics, where chaos and irrationality creep in, breaking all logic and perspective.
As a result, music arises from urgent beats, polyrhythms, odd structures, electronic and futuristic sounds blended with vintage echoes such as a blues guitar riff, a ‘70s melodic synth and ‘80s wave influences.
All band members have been busy pursuing other projects during the long time period since the previous album, and these experiences outside Fonderia enriched and influenced this new piece of work.
The album was recorded at Studiosette in Rome, the band’s headquarters, mixed by Paolo Pecorelli and mastered by Alessandro Cavallo. The artwork by Emiliano “Stand” Cataldo was inspired by the geometrical and minimalist style of 80’s LP covers.
It is a new chapter in Fonderia’s book, different in sounds and approach from the previous ones, though faithful to the original and uncompromising philosophy of the band
