“Ai Margini della Città” is a project that arises in 2013 fulfilling the need to mould intuitions, suggestions, desires. Francesco, Aldo, Angelo and Giuseppe form “Ai Margini della città” (from now on AMDC). This is an instrumental project that lives beneath the sway of the most beautiful post rock experiences both from Italy and abroad. AMDC have soon fallen under the spell of the sound fabrics of Mogwai, Sigur Rós, Mono, Explosions in the Sky, God is an Astronaut and from the very beginning they have pledged to the passionate construction of personal and recognisable sound.
The music of AMDC tells of beloved images and landscapes, it’s a research about what lies beneath and you can’t grasp, it’s the sound of what is not returned by the sight, with just the filter of the air coming between the image: their music is the offer of an intimate and intense listening.
In 2014 AMDC take part to the contest for emerging bands within Premio Maggio, an event organized by CGIL syndicate in Bari. They got through to the finale and played in Kismet Theatre opening the show of the Italian singer-songwriter Mariantonietta and they won the second place.
In August 2014 they recorded their first EP at BoBo Studios in Capurso. It was then released on 1st January 2015 and it includes four tracks (Nordkapp, Der Blaue Reiter, Strong Dream, Fighting Forms). At the same time they released a track (Der Blaue Reiter - piano version) recorded with the precious collaboration of Master Livio Minafra on the piano. In 2015 they perform at Giovinazzo Rock Festival and the festival Frequencies Mediterranee Miglionico.
During 2015 AMDC/the band also releases a new track, Disquiet, and performs in some promo gigs, closing the short tour with the opening act for Föllakzoid at the Eremo Club in Molfetta.
After this period, the band goes through a time in studio looking for a richer sound thanks to the improved inspiration given by a new entry in the group of musicians: Pasquale Ricciotti (keyboards). This choice aspires to the enhancement of this perspective, resulting in the release of two new EPs in 2019.
Ai Margini Della Città are Francesco, Aldo, Angelo, Giuseppe and Pasquale.
"Looking Through, Looking For" is the new EP which is out on January 26th via Spore. It was recorded and mixed by Dario Tatoli (aka Makai) at REH Recording Studio in Terlizzi (Italy). It follows 2015’s debut EP.
Three tracks wich show their ability to interlace delicate and elaborate textures, full of small and essential details. They focused on emotional post-rock lines on the first one “Violet and Yellow Rhythms“, melting melodic vibes with a rough sound. “Looking Back” and “Disquiet” underline minimal lines with ambient connections (which could be a good path to follow for the next full-lenght). We have the pleasure to premiere the full streaming."
