Blindur

Performed in Sofar Reykjavík and Naples

Blindur is a duo formed in Naples (Italy); it was born in the spring of 2014 and is formed by Massimo De Vita (singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer) and Michelangelo Bencivenga (multi-instrumentalist). From May 2014 until 2016 Blindur had more than 100 gigs all around Italy, France, Ireland, Belgium and Iceland. Playing in important venues and festivals like the Body & Soul Festival in Westmeath (Ireland); Blindur published in November 2014 an EP "Casa Lavica live session"; won many important musical competitions in Italy and was the open act of the most important Italian indie bands like Dellera, Tre Allegri Ragazzi Morti; Dimartino; Giorgio Canali & Rossofuoco, Cristiano Godano (Marlene Kuntz) and many more. Blindur had also many international featuring: in studio with Birgir Birgisson (Sigur Ros); Al Cowan (Sinead O'Connor and many more); about the live, Blindur played as open act for the Canadian singer-songwriter and poet Barzin during his 2015 Italian tour; Blindur had also an Italian tour in November 2014 of 11 gigs with the Irish singer-songwriter Johnny Rayge. Blindur's sound is inspired by folk, indie rock and post rock, in a crossroad between Dublin and Reykjavik; in fact Blindur came from the Mediterranean, but is very close to the northern europe and also just from the name, that is an Icelandic word, it's simply to understand this special feeling. About the lyrics, Blindur has his roots in the amazing Italian poetry tradition and in the modern alternative songwriting. Just two people on the stage, but the audience have the impression to listen to a complete band because the electric and acoustic guitars, the banjo, a drum set played by feet, the electronic fx and the synth create a complex and deep sound. Just close your eyes and listen... that's the trick.
