Hello guys. This week, I’m introducing you to the acoustic emo punk rockers Six Impossible Things! Learn more about the band’s latest releases below!
Hello Six Impossible Things! Thanks for doing this interview with us! Could you introduce yourselves and tell us about how the band first formed? Hi guys! We’re Nicole Fodritto (vocals) and Lorenzo Di Girolamo (guitar/vocals). The band formed in the summer of 2014 by chance, we met each other ‘cause we were in the same music scene. With our old bands we played different genres, Lorenzo played in a melodic hardcore band while Nicole in a country rock band, but we have a common love for british music and american songwriters. Since the beginning we started to write the songs that now you can find in our first album “We Are All Mad Here”.
You released your first full length “We Are All Mad Here” on April 7th 2017, via Tanzan Music. Can you tell us more about this record? How did you approach the writing process for this album? We wrote nearly 16 songs and we chose 11 of them with our producer. We wrote those songs only with an acoustic guitar, but at the same time we didn’t want the album to have tunes that all sound the same. So we recorded all the songs live in the studio and after that we added the piano, some electric guitars, percussions and countless background vocals.
If you had to pick one track that best reflects the spirit of this album, which one would you choose and why? It’s difficult to choose only one track ‘cause there are many songs and a part of us is in everyone of them, but maybe, “Words” is the song that best represents the spirit of the album. In this song there are all the characteristics of Six Impossible Things, two voices singin’ together, acoustic guitars, and the dynamic contrast of soft and loud parts.
I saw that you also played shows throughout Italy and Switzerland in 2017. Looking back, what was your favorite concert and why? In 2017, we played many gigs and we lived the strangest situations on tour: every show had his distinctive trait. The best bands we played with are probably Milburn and Rob Moir but there are some cool Italian bands we toured with too. We saw many places and met many people but our favorite concert was definitely the one in Milan back in september 2017 when we played Legend Club. We saw Moose Blood, Touchè Amorè and many other shows in this venue and to play there it was a dream come true for the both of us.
Last but not least. What is one lesson you’ve learned that you think is important to pass onto other bands? Do what you love and never take anything for granted. The most beautiful things are to make new friends, play shows and travel; enjoy every second of it.
Thanks for your time! Thanks to you guys, it was a pleasure!
