Newcomers to us here at Rock Sins, we think Italian five piece Halflives will soon be catching the attention of a lot of people.
Led by frontwoman Linda Battliani, they are releasing their debut album Empty Rooms on the 14th of April. Having only released their debut single in September, the band managed to crowdfund their new record in just a month, and achieved almost double their funding target to boot!
For a taste of what to expect, check out the video for their current single Burn below:
Want to know more about Halflives debut album Empty Rooms? Hear it straight from their frontwoman Linda herself:
“”Empty Rooms” is the result of a long period of work and introspection. I was finding myself in a really dark place when writing these songs and I used the feelings I was carrying with me to give birth to something new, something deeper from everything that was written before. The inspiration came from different pieces of my life, including things I’ve seen on tour, things I’ve felt even by just staring outside of the ferry approaching to the white cliffs of Dover under the rain.
Each song is a different empty room where I’ve let my feelings flow, you can visit them all and find a piece of us in each of them, a story, in each of them.
The songs have been finely work in the past 18 months until they reached a shape and a sound that was satisfying us all.
We decided to keep just 8 of the very best tracks in this album to let people feel our real essence and we can’t wait to present it to you all.”
