Westfalia (Pop from Italy)
Mannheim - Kulturbrücken Jungbusch
Beginn: 20 Uhr
Eintritt: 12 €, Eventbrite-Ticket
The name Westfalia brings to one's mind the famous Volkswagen van, a symbol of globe-trotters from all over the world, of travelers who are not afraid of neither low nor high pressure.
Vincenzo Destradis, David Paulis, Jacopo Moschetto and Enrico Truzzi are musical creatures that have their natural habitat on stage, delivering an all-encompassing, yet massive and powerful mixture of Art Pop, RnB and Dance Rock, while also threading into psychedelic territories, such as on their first single “Goblin”, released in November, 2021, while the band was taking part in the TV talent show X-Factor Italia.
"On March, 18, 2022, Westfalia released their second single, "Sunset Kids". The track could be considered a generational manifesto exuding a soulful and ironic feel, which also worked as an anticipation of their first EP “We Are Not Just Good At Playing” (Needn't, May, 6th, 2022).
On their latest release, the band surprisingly displays more of a rock attitude: the arrangements become neurotic, constantly swinging between flows of words and melodic passages, while the production is rich in nuances and contaminations, thanks to the band members' heterogeneous musical backgrounds.
However, the best way to experience Westfalia’s unique sonic universe is to meet them live on their tour...
