Ofeliadorme from Bologna in Italy, were formed in 2007, when Francesca Bono (Vocals, guitar and Keyboard) got together with Gianluca Modica (Bass, guitar and backing vocal), soon joined by Tato Izzie (Guitar and bass) and Michele Postpischl (Drums and keyboard). Their experimental music is created as members take on different instruments through their atmospheric musical output.



Many bands try to create an atmospheric moods to their music, but few manage to capture this as effectively as Ofeliadorme. The haunting voice of Francesca instantly transports the music to somewhere other-worldly. The music floats between acoustic laden melodies, to louder darker pieces, with superb percussion provided by Michele. The band fit together superbly as they swap instruments and speed, yet retain a menacing brooding presence, that lets the mind wander while simultaneously mesmerised by the lyrical content and creative use of background sound effects, together with the multiple layers of guitar.

Currently tour dates across Italy, with two events in the UK:

20 Oct-Spazio Liberato Ex Breda-Pistoia(IT)
5 Nov-TV12-Manchester (UK) with Carnations
6 Nov- The Cross Kings-London (UK)
