From BANKROBBER To BANKROCKER

Daily electricity to load your batteries

11 Augustus 2022

Band: THE BANKROBBER
Who: Italian alt-pop band led by
brother ad sister Giacomo and
Maddalena Oberti
‘.

New single: HATE ME
5th shared track (hear the other 4 below) from
their new, upcoming album Lighters and Lovers.

Turn Up The Volume: Wow! So far this Italian trio made their way
to Turn Up The Volume‘s ears with scintillating synth-pop sparks. But
here with Hate Me they swirl stupendously.

Turned-on guitars and Oberti‘s quick-fire vocals – on the cracking
chorus he goes as fast as a rapper – inflame this straightforward
standout. From bankrobber to bankrocker.

Bingo!

The other 4 cuts.

THE BANKROBBER Scores Again With New Single ‘BURY ME SOFTLY’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

25 June 2022

Band: THE BANKROBBER
Who: Italian alt-pop band led by
brother ad sister Giacomo and
Maddalena Oberti
‘.

New single: BURN ME SOFTLY
Third new piece from their
forthcoming, sophomore album.

Score: This is a mesmeric slo-mo electro groove with Soft Cell synths here and there, a booming beat making your head move up and down while your feet tap to the rhythm. The dark lyrics and the haunting siblings vocals create a shadowy atmosphere. A curious and capricious cut. Another great single. Bring on the album!

Try this: lights out, headphones on, volume to the max.
It’ll feel like if your heart beats like hammer blows.

THE BANKROBBER Shares Another Dream With ‘LEASH DIED (SHOULDN’T CRY)

Daily electricity to load your batteries

22 December 2021

Band: THE BANKROBBER
Who: Italian alt-pop band led by
siblings Giacomo and Maddalena Oberti

New single: LEASH DIED (SHOULDN’T CRY)
A new piece from their upcoming, second, album
titled Lighters and Lovers

The Italian band follows their intimate and tender ballad
Carry Me On with this new emotive reflection. But this
shadowy dream is more upbeat and lively although with
a dark twist when a distorted ghost-like voice takes the
song over on the chorus. I’m pretty sure Tame Impala will
like this one.

Tune in here…

Swirling Synth Pop Stomper – THE BANKROBBER Dropped New Single ‘WHITE SKIN’

Daily electricity to load your batteries

1 March 2022

Band: THE BANKROBBER
Who: Italian alt-pop band led by
brother ad sister Giacomo and
Maddalena Oberti

New single: WHITE SKIN
Second shared piece of the
band’s new upcoming album.

Turn Up The Volume: The titillating electro- intro echoes early Depeche Mode
before they became the darkwave Goth-esque rockers we all know. But in an
eye-blink White Skin turns into a swirling synth-pop stomper to fill dancefloors
with. It’s an instantly infectious nightclub earworm with an ecstatic chorus.

In a normal world (does that actually exists?) this adrenaline-infused
and hip-swinging doozy should top the dance charts around the globe.

Another solid gold hit by the Italian siblings.

Press play and move your feet…

Melancholia In Motion – THE BANKROBBER Revealed New Video Clip For ‘CARRY ME ON’ Single

Clips for ears and eyes…

19 June 2021

Italian pop act THE BANKROBBER released
their newest single CARRY ME ON last month.

Turn Up The Volume wrote: “New musing Carry Me On feels like a nightly
gloaming. Acoustic soul-searching and intimate tenderness. The darksome
sorrowfulness of the late great Buckley legends floats all over this gloomy
Giacomo Oberti ballad. The Bankrobber is back and still has the lockdown
blues.”

And here’s the video clip for the song. As always, made with images fitting
the song’s heart and soul, with stylishness and refinement, visualizing the
tristesse of the protagonist in this one beautifully. Melancholia in motion.

Darksome Video Clip For Darksome Reverie – ‘BLOOD’ By THE BANKROBBER

18 December 2020

Italian synth-guitar popsters THE BANKROBBER, led by siblings
Oberti, released a new hazy single called BLOOD, a couple of
weeks ago.

Turn Up The Volume wrote: “Starting with a short repetitive intro of
ah ah ah’s bringing Laurie Anderson‘s 1981 hit O Superman to mind, you
instantly enter a twilight zone with dreamy atmospherics, weeping guitars
and poetical, alternating male/female vocals. A darksome, somber, and
pitchy meditation, a misty winter song, a double-edged candlelight beauty.”

Now they have a clip out for the track. Special visuals as usual…

Misty Winter Song – Here’s New Somber Single ‘BLOOD’ By THE BANKROBBER

29 November 2020

With only two singles it was a relatively calm year for Italian
synth-pop songsmiths THE BANKROBBER with siblings Oberti.

Last June they released the intriguing and darksome saga I.A.M.N.A.Y.A.M.D (Always
In My Nightmare)
and to say goodbye to 2020 they just shared new moody emo ballad, titled BLOOD.

Starting with a short repetitive intro of ah ah ah’s bringing Laurie Anderson‘s 1981
hit O Superman to mind, you instantly enter a twilight zone with dreamy atmospherics, weeping guitars and poetical, alternating male/female vocals. A shadowy, somber, and pitchy meditation, a misty winter song, a double-edged candlelight beauty.
