Theo Taddei: new second single “Fantasia” is out today, to anticipate the album “LOTO” that will be released on April 10, 2020 by Fresh Yo!

LOTO is the solo debut album by musician and visual artist Theo Taddei, previously a member of the Italian indie bands TooMuchBlond, Le Furie and Aquarama. The album will be released on April 10, 2020 by Fresh Yo! Label, on vinyl and all digital platforms.

On the cover image there is one of my drawings: a mountainous landscape made only of cypresses and respective shadows, which transmit the definition of the hills through the perception of depth. That’s what I also tried to do on the record: to put every detail in a wider context“, Taddei explains.

LOTO has been played and recorded over the last few years by Taddei. He started on the drums – his instrument of choice – and then added more elements (guitars, bass, piano, keyboards), all essential in the songwriting phase, up to the voice, deliberately kept low in the mix, as if it were whispered to himself with the hope of being universal.

Everything, starting from the drawing on the cover, speaks about the attachment to the places in Tuscany where Taddei grew up and the nostalgia triggered by their memory: “I was born in the countryside, just outside Florence. Here I soon learned to play drums, to be alone, to cultivate silence and sense of discovery guaranteed by the surrounding nature. I developed a certain sacredness for these places“.

Taddei’s music is concrete and at the same time dreamlike. It evokes indie pop, psychedelia and alt-folk. But above all it contains images, as if the seven songs on the tracklist were short films.

The release of LOTO is anticipated by the singles XIX and Fantasia. The only external contributions are those of Francesco Cangi, playing the trombone in the exotic Nascondino, and Samuele Cangi, responsible for mixing the entire work.

The release of LOTO will be accompanied by an exhibition that will take place soon at the Bellini Museum in Florence, curated by Caterina Toschi. It will be a multidisciplinary path marked by the display of drawings, video and music productions.

LOTO is the door to enter Theo Taddei’s personal microcosm.
