Press Play: New Candys – “Tempera”

Catching our eye this month with their Venetian psychedelic rock, and hot retro embellished music video for their track “Tempera” are the New Candys. The band consists of Fernando Nuti (vocals, guitar, sitar), Diego Menegaldo (guitar, vocals), Stefano Bidoggia (bass, organ) and Dario Lucchesi (drums, percussion). Their influences reverberate and resonate with the legendary sounds of bands like The Velvet Underground and Syd Barrett. And after having released their first self-produced EP back in in 2012, they followed that up with putting out their album “Stars Reach The Abyss” on Foolica. In 2015 they took part in “The Reverb Conspiracy”, a compilation curated by Fuzz Club/The Reverberation Appreciation Society (Levitation Austin). Later that year “New Candys As Medicine”, album mixed by John Wills (producer and drummer of Loop), was released on both Picture In My Ear/Fuzz Club and added to The Committee To Keep Music Evil catalogue, receiving praises from Simone Marie Butler of Primal Scream and Stephen Lawrie of The Telescopes. Three EU/UK tours followed, including festivals like The Secret Garden Party 2015 and Liverpoool Psych Fest 2016. Where they shared the stage with The Warlocks, Dead Skeletons, Crystal Stilts, Slowdive, Savages, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and The Vaccines among others
