On the radio and on all digital platforms comes ‘Ossa’, the new single from La Monarchia, the first Flebo / Banana Studios co-production on the Flebo (A1) label. A love story weighed down by frustrations and the cry of a generation in today’s Italy. “And you told me forever, always is a big thing / Of us forever will not even remain the bones / You look like your mother and me my father / We are two people without action in a sentence / I don’t, I don’t give up / I’m in pieces but deep down I keep you “, sings the band. And again: “But it’s time to leave, it’s time to take risks / A change is needed to keep everything the same / I don’t, I don’t I don’t, I don’t / I don’t give up”. The song – the first with the Milanese label – ambitiously aims to redefine the Italian alt-pop genre. The massive presence of 90s guitars and the lyrics that tell the ordinary stories of which the Italian province is dotted come together in a current and unadorned sound thanks to a direct melody and energetic singing without flourishes of the frontman and singer Giulio Barlucchi. love story, yes, but also a city trapped in the indefinite middle way between the metropolis and the country. These are the “bones” of the song that everyone will be able to hear from tomorrow 7 May. An apparently disenchanted mood alternates between verse and refrain until it becomes, in the final special, a generational cry that questions the complexity and, at times, the frustration, of having ambitions to spend in a world as narrow as certain Italian provinces.
