Madness at Home is trio born in Rome in the summer of 2019. Under the spell of artists like Kyuss, Nirvana and Melvins, they wanted to bring back that obsolete sound from the late 80’s and early 90’s.
Their sound is dirt, distorted, untrendy, the lyrics are focused on sudden feelings and repressed thoughts, flowing as a stream of consciousness without any logical meaning.
They released a first eponymous EP at the beginning of 2020 for Seahorse Recording, but were then forced to a long period of stand by due to the pandemic.
At the same time, their sound started to incorporate into the post-hardcore and alternative 90’s influences some more modern listening (Metz, Young Widows, Daughters, Unwound, Fudge Tunnel, Gilla Band), being still dirty, obsessive and distorted.
At the beginning of 2022 they recorded their first full lenght album Shoelace, released by Overdub Recordings on October 14th, 2022.
Shoelace was recorded and mixed in Rome by Grop Records and Gianmarco Lauri, produced by the band itself.
The 10 tracks album is a description of endless waiting, recurring dreams, indolence and a morbid escapism where hidden desires turn into real.
Pietro Zaccari – Voice and Guitar
Andrea “D.B.” De Cave – Bass
Giulio Calamarà – Drums
Clocking at a sharp 2’02”, Wet Room is the new single (and video) taken from Madness At Home’s debut album Shoelace, released in October ’22 by Overdub Recordings.
Syncopated drumming, obsessive basslines and dissonant guitar chords push immediately into the abrasive moods of the track. It’s a flood of inputs both from the brain and the external world which paralyse mind and body, while machine-gun guitars open up a grotesque post-punk new world.
Wet Room stings like an Idles song played by Nirvana.
Also for fans of Metz, Young Widows, Daughters, Unwound, Fudge Tunnel and Gilla Band.
