Rolling snare drum, distorted guitars, passionate vocals, my energy levels go instantly up! Italian indie rocker Mirko Zino, aka Alexo Vitruviano, calls it 'flurry rock'. I tried googling this sub-genre but didn't find much information. It's no surprise he claims to have invented it. And it's true. He has really found a brand for himself and that rolling snare drum is really his trademark. What a salesman.
But what's the recipe for 'flurry rock'? The ingredients include that snare drum and elements of metal combined with dance beats. And that's only the foundation of it. The colosseum-sized choruses are the icing on the cake. Too bad they're not a sing-along if you're not an Italian speaker. But I am, and so I sing, in the shower, in the street, in the car...but it's probably better if I let Alexo sing.
What exactly does he sing about? Dreams like in La strada (The road): There is something that never fades inside your soul and inside your heart, it's the desire to find that road that will make your dreams come true. Love like in Ogni volta e' cosi' (Everytime is like that): I lose control around you, I believe it's because you've always been my dream..So, despite the distorted guitars, the high-powered vocals and the beat pulsing in your veins, Vitruviano is a romantic at heart.
Give a listen to his music!
