SAVANA EUROPE PRESS KIT
“Appaloosa peddle some rather tasty instrumental funk-rock. And, just to clarify, that’s genuine, butt-shaking beauties, rather than the kind of white-guy Shaft cliché-mongering associated with certain high temperature chilli peppers. Savana begins with jolly dance-rock sinths and ends with wheezing feedback,but in between ther’s a glut of undeniable grooves.”
THE SKINNY (UK)
…”Glù” gives an end to the content of 'Savana' that is one of the best example you could hear in the actual experimental panorama...
“If this were the sixties then I reckon Appaloosa would be classified as a “head” band.
They would be the kind of band with a cult following that could still headline at an open air festival” (4/5).
Fantastically punchy drums backing a twin bass guitar barrage, with textures and landscapes liberally sprinkled over the top. (8/10)
TASTY FANZINE (UK)
“Appaloosa comes from Italy and the musicians play heavy rockmusic with electronic elements. That sounds good and is in keeping with time […] The frequencies of the sounds are well tuned and all in all there is neither a lack of creativity, nor of good music. (5/6)
REGION MUSIK (DE)
”Friends of bass-heavy experimental music with a penchant for thick grooves and fuzz guitars should be looking out for the Italians. Such a dense atmosphere on CD which must be exploding live!” (5/6)
TRIGGERFISH 'ZINE (DE )
“I can clearly see them go apeshit on the stage and to catch a few thousand kids to dance along to their beats and rhythms. A great party”
