Ángela Tröndle – vocals, keys
Pippo Corvino – acoustic guitars

Ángela Tröndle and Pippo Corvino are on the search for new sounds again… on their last album “DISTILLED” (2021) they reinterpreted their first songs together with a reduction of their instrumentarium, making them sound even more intimate and filigree. They have been pursuing this sonic path for some time now, and so new compositions and stories have emerged in recent months, in which once again Pippo’s multi-layered guitar playing meets Ángela’s voice, which performs both with its own lyrics and with the help of vocalises in its many sonic nuances.
