The Wires @ Circolo Degli Artisti

Rome, 19th June
The Wires is a brand new musical act consisting of Marco, Christian, Alessio and Marco, from Rome.
It’s bloody hot in the Circolo degli Artisti when these four Italian kids take the stage to support Padua’s Red Worms Farm.
Considering the name of the band, everyone was expecting a tribute to Colin Newman and Wire’s atmospheric sound and Situationist lyrics.
From the first guitar riff it’s clear instead that these guys have been fed with garage punk since their birth.
Inspired by bands such as Stones, Animals, Yardbirds, and influenced by revival bands as Datsuns, Hives, and Vines, The Wires gave the audience half an hour and seven pieces of pure energy.
‘Running out’ is MC5 updated through The White Stripes, with Marco’s voice screaming like a young Bon Scott.
With ‘Take me away’ and ‘In my head’, The Wires start to get the grips on the public, at least three hundred indie kids intrigued by vigour and charm of this four-piece.
‘Black Man’ sounds like a rough version of Von Bondies, while I’m sure that bands like The Black Keys or Electric 6 would feel proud of songs as ‘Communication’, ‘Walking around’, and the final ‘Song for No one’.
The Wires will play again in Rome at La Spiaggetta on the 4th August before heading to London during fall.
