Schonwald is the modern Italian darkwave


A return to the darkness in electro-rock with a deep bass is Schonwald´s music. Alessandra Gismondi and Luca Bandini say their songs are “all about atmospheres:  hypnotic minimalist mood and a  noise inclination with echoes of  Suicide, New Order, The Cure, mingling with synth melodies straight from the ’80”.

With a subterranean and electric effect on the Gismondi’s voice, Schonwald catch us with Fuchsia, the most recent track of the band and you can download for free! This is a great example of postpunk influence, but mixed with a racket and melodic synth sound, so we get a song to the rhythm of dancing shadows.

Perfect to an insomnia club or dramatic poem, Schonwald showed their particular music since their first album “Amplified nature”, which was realized in February 2009 on a special Vinyl edition including CD on Pocket Heaven Records (Lux). In addition, this album  has been supported by four European tours through Italy, England, France, Swizerland , Luxembourg and Germany.
