PENNELLI DI VERMEER are a five-piece band from Boscotrecase, Italy.
They were formed in 2004 with the intent to create an extensive musical project whose key word is "contamination". Their music has been described as 'pictorial rock', which combines traditional songwriting forms, theatre, rock, folk rock and progressive rock. The band's musical output is very distinctive and original; the lyrics are often conceived as visionary 'micro-suites', featuring satirical and metaphysical elements.
In november 2017 Pennelli di Vermeer released their 4th CD, “Misantropi felici”, for the Neapolitan label, Soter.
Pasquale Sorrentino (vocals and acoustic guitar), Stefania Aprea (vocals), Michele Matto (bass guitar), Joe Dardano (electric guitar), Marco Sorrentino (vocals and drums).
