Started in the summer of 2012 Dagger Moth is the lonesome project of Sara Ardizzoni, eclectic guitarist (by choice) and singer (by chance). A kind of one-woman-band, weaving together electric guitar, some minimal electronics, noises, loops and vocals in a weird balance of structure, melody and chaos.
The self-titled debut album was released on Psicolabel in april 2013 with the collaboration of Giorgio Canali, Joe Lally (Fugazi), Alfonso Santimone, Luca Bottigliero.
The new album "Silk around the marrow" (april 2016), recorded by Franco Naddei, features collaborations with Marc Ribot and Antonio Gramentieri. In November 2017 the record was mentioned by GUITAR PLAYER in a top-album list for the period 2010-2017: "We pick 60 Noteworthy Guitar Albums of the past 50 years_History of Noteworthy Guitar Albums, 1967-2017". The magazine has also interviewed Sara with an article titled "Angel of havoc" on the May 2018 issue called Pedalmania.
Dagger Moth has performed at many different venues (clubs, festivals, houseconcerts, gardens, theatres, museums…) and had the pleasure to play as an opening act for Fennesz, Marc Ribot, Mike Watt, Peter Hook, Shannon Wright, Pumajaw, Sam Amidon, Hugo Race and Keziah Jones.
Some recent collaborations: with the L.A based band Double Naught Spy Car (for their latest album "Moof" along with guests such as Mike Watt and Nels Cline); with Cesare Basile (with whom Sara has also performed at the Primavera Sound Festival 2018 in Barcelona); with Philippe Petit (for a double remix of a Dagger Moth track).
