Le Scimmie sulla Luna formed in Lecce, Italy in 2017. Although all natives to southern Italy, the band has created a unique and unconventional sound.
In fact, their first album “Terra!” (2018, La Rivolta Records/Puglia Sounds) experimented with elements outside of the Italian music mold, with all purely instrumental pieces.
La Scimmie Sulla Luna richly intertwine elements from different musical influences to create a post-rock cinematic atmosphere, spiced up by dense funky grooves and math-rock harmonies. Blow Up Magazine describes their sound as: “…from delicate arpeggios à la Steve Hackett to Arcade Fire-like indie-rock allusions and actually jazz-rock compositions.”
Most recently, the band has gained attention as the opener for Editors and Cigarettes After Sex at MEDIMEX festival, as well as their ten-day tour in Japan.
In mid November Le Scimmie sulla Luna will embark on an international tour, starting with the UK.
Members of Le Scimmie sulla Luna include: Cristiano Metrangolo (guitar), Stefano Greco (bass), Jori Stifani (guitar/synth) and Luca Greco (drums).
