Biography

Blake/e/e/e (pronounced “Blake-ie”) is a Bologna based music project. The band currently consists of Paolo Iocca, Marcella Riccardi and Mattia Boscolo. The lineup sees other members switching roles: Davy DeLaFuente, Oren Wagner, Egle Sommacal, Bruno Germano and Marcello Petruzzi.

Marcella Riccardi and Paolo Iocca met in 2002 and started recording together under the moniker of Franklin Delano. They released 3 albums and toured both the States and Europe a number of times. In 2007 they decided to disband and start Blake/e/e/e to further develop their work with a freer approach.

Although the band is often classified as psych folk/dub/post punk, it is hard to define Blake/e/e/e sound as they often experiment with diverse styles and ideas. Their debut album, Border Radio (Unhip Records, 2008), has been defined as “Beach Boys go to church where the church becomes a mutant disco”.

The band has recently toured the States and Europe and is currently working on new material.

Quotes:

“Blake/e/e/e take the listener on a vivid and diverse musical journey. […] Through fields of indie, folk and psychedelic rock, Blake/e/e/e delve into the heart and soul of experimental songcraft. Afterall, this is not radio, it’s Border Radio.”
Will Miller - Sound As Language

“This disc may be the soundtrack to a bizarre hallucination, and it is truly for a select audience.”
Rich Quinlan - Jersey Beat

“They are very free spirited and almost impossible to classify, thus making them intriguing and interesting to listen to. Some would say it’s folk, but only as much as the Pacific is “some water”.”

    Hello everybody. If you could check out the spelling of your track titles and correct it where wrong, that would be awesome. I f you look at the top tracks list above, you'll realize why. Scrobblers are not that clever here. Thanks for reading. PS: "The Thing's Hollow/Hallow" issue is a mispell by the mastering studio. You can leave both versions...
