Maneskin thinks rock and roll is an “impossible” genre to kill.
The Italian rock band – which consists of vocalist Damiano David, bassist Victoria De Angelis, guitarist Thomas Raggi and drummer Ethan Torchio – were asked how they compare to other artists in the genre and admitted that “no one” in particular “guards” it. alive” but it is simply impossible to get rid of it.
Damiano said: “Nobody ‘keeps rock ‘n’ roll alive’. It’s just unkillable. In my head what we do is very different from what MGK does, which is very far of what Yungblud does, which is very far from what Willow Smith does, but a lot of artists bring back that kind of sound and energy: distorted guitars and real drums, to fuck play with a band with real analog sounds, stage-dive-all rock ‘n’ roll shit. The music just keeps growing. It all collides and mixes in a good way.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Beggin’ hitmakers – who shot to fame after finishing as the eleventh season runners of the Italian version of ‘The X Factor’ in 2017 and achieved further success by winning the ‘Eurovision Song Contest’ of the song 2021” for their country of origin – explained that their decision to enter the talent show was in the first place only an attempt to run with an opportunity.
Damiano told NME: “We were basically tired of carrying instruments and amplifiers on our fucking shoulders. We saw an opportunity and just jumped on the bandwagon.”
“It’s the only ‘X Factor’ that lets real bands play, or at least it was the first. It gives you the opportunity to show something real. We did everything we wanted to do .”
