Released April 29th, 2022NO VAX (What’s Inside?) is the brand new single by Border., following their notorious debut EP We Don’t Exist (September 2020), which featured the radical LGBT dance anthem Double Rainbow.
NO VAX is a powerful techno-punk ritual, aiming to exorcise in an ironic way the nightmares of the pandemic’s everyday life.
A super-acid sound booms overwhelmingly, in a game of synths and “glitch” filters, all over Erika’s voice reciting as a kind of litany the list of Covid’s vaccines, variants, masks, Green Pass, etc. You can feel the not-so-subtle sarcasm about No Vax people, their conspiracy’s theories and their surreal skepticism against science.
In the very end, we just have to dance while we can, as much as we can.

The video was created by Veronica Fausti combining graphic video editing programs, such as Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, with Procreate digital drawing software. The beats of the music enhance the acid rave style of the video, with distorted effects and RGB Glitch. The drawings are inspired by the No Vax propaganda, questioning the efficacy, purpose and composition of vaccines. It’s a stroboscopic journey, as if vaccines were comparable to drugs and their hallucinogenic effects.
The “mouth” is the predominant element, because this issue has been and is “on everyone’s lips”.

Border. – A short bio

Border., it’s written just like that, with the final dot indicating that there are no borders, in geography as in art.
Border. has an extreme sound, without compromise, obsessive rhythms that summarize the last forty years of punk and industrial, a perfect synthesis between Siouxsie, The Prodigy, The Cramps, Atari Teenage Riot.
The duo was born from the meeting between Demi More and Erika Spada in 2017 in the cult place of Bologna’s counterculture, via del Pratello; they found out they were both passionate about electronic music, post punk, garage rock and both have had many experiences in the field of music, theater and performance arts.
Demi was invited in 2012 to perform at the German Lollapalooza, and Erika had several collaborations as a playwrighter and actress – as Peraspera Festival. Demi was looking for a voice to complete his musical delirium and so the deal was done.
In September 2020 they released the WE DON’T EXIST – EP, recorded with the skilful production of Gianluca Lo Presti in the Loto Studio in the province of Ravenna.
The EP encloses the single Double Rainbow,  which caused quite a storm getting airplay and coverage all over the globe, from The States to France, from the Uk to New Zealand. The track was a radical manifesto in support of civil rights, paired by a video juxtaposing images of Trump, The Pope, Pride Parades and tribal dances, defined by Ice No Fruits blog “a technicolour maelstrom”.

After two years of pandemic, Border. now return with a new single, which is not by chance called NO VAX (What’s Inside?) and is again produced by Lo Presti. The release is scheduled for April 29, 2022.

Biografia
Border., si scrive proprio così, con il punto finale ad indicare che non esistono confini, in geografia come nell’arte. 
I Border. hanno un sound estremo, senza compromessi, ritmi ossessivi che riassumono gli ultimi quarant’anni di punk e industrial, una perfetta sintesi tra Siouxsie, The Prodigy, The Cramps, Atari Teenage Riot. 
Il duo nasce dall’incontro tra Demi More ed Erika Spada nel 2017 nel luogo da sempre chiave della controcultura bolognese, Via del Pratello. Entrambi sono appassionati di musica elettronica, post punk, garage rock ed entrambi hanno alle spalle numerose esperienze nel campo della musica, del teatro e delle performance arts. Demi è stato invitato nel 2012 a esibirsi al Lollapalooza tedesco, ed Erika è reduce da diverse collaborazioni come drammaturga e attrice, fra cui il Peraspera Festival. Demi cerca una voce per completare il suo delirio musicale ed ecco che il gioco è fatto. 
A Settembre 2020 la prima uscita discografica: WE DON’T EXIST – EP, realizzato sotto l’abile produzione di Gianluca Lo Presti nel Loto Studio in provincia di Ravenna. L’EP include il singolo Double Rainbow, un manifesto radicale in favore dei diritti civili a colpi di synth e beats, supportato da un video – definito dal blog US Ice No Fruits “a technicolour maelstrom”–  che mischia Trump, il Papa, Pride Parade e danze tribali.
A Novembre 2021 il duo si esibisce durate la Milan Music Week, selezionati per gli showcase di Linecheck.
I Border. tornano ora con un nuovo singolo, che non a caso si chiama NO VAX (What’s Inside?) ed è sempre prodotto da Lo Presti, disponibile dal 29 Aprile 2022 sul loro Bandcamp, You Tube, e a breve anche su tutti i digital stores.

23 AND BEYOND THE INFINITE were born in 2012 in Benevento, South of Italy, as a 4-piece band.

From the very beginning their sound is the result of the encounter between influences and suggestions coming from different worlds such as psych rock, post punk and early shoegaze, sometimes merging into noise experiments.

During the first 9 years of its career, the band has been constantly experimenting its own research on sounds and composition and has released 3 albums and 2 EPs that perfectly reflect its continuous evolution. This period has also been characterized by a dense live activity, thanks to which the band made itself known by performing over 300 times on numerous stages of European underground clubs and festivals.

In 2021 23 and Beyond the Infinite became a trio, thus marking an important stage in their path. While remaining faithful to its imprint, their sound became more immediate and cutting edge and grew a stronger live impact as well as new compositional inspiration. The result is the band’s fourth full length Lumen del Mundo, released on May 23th 2022 via Dirty Beach and Stand Alone Complex.

Live recorded by Raffaello Pisacreta at Mood Records in Atripalda (AV), mixed and mastered by James Aparicio, Lumen del Mundo is an 8-track album in which acid post punk grooves, surf guitars, a rough garage rock energy. and dynamics full of a strong emotionality merge and fuse, emphasized by live recording.

The album starts with the most immediate and impactful songs and then gradually opens up to noisedelic and deviant evolutions along a journey ending with a tribute to the Doors, reinterpreted in an absolutely personal key.

The album will be performed by the band in several tours through Italy and Europe during the year.

Released on May 11th, Horsedance is the single introducing 23 and Beyond the Infinite new album Lumen del Mundo.
Horsedance pushes the listener into a delirious dance in between acid and deviant worlds. Obsessive surf rock riffs, relentless rhythmics and garage-rock vocals merge together.
The video – by Andrea Conti and Chiara Abramo of Animal Slot Collective – revolves around a horse mask that attracts and possesses anyone who finds it. It’s a cursed but also liberating ritual, happening in the suburbs of a seaside city, and interrupting its loopy and grey monotony.
Horsedance is the cadabre abra of our awakenings. A mixture of irony, mysticism and contemporaneity that transports us to a filterless dimension, a game that drags us out of the ordinary and undresses the artifice. A dreamlike experience for daydreamers.
