Hailing from London, exuberant alt-rock three piece Dramalove mix guitar based rock with electronic angularity and darkly poetic lyricism.
"Lots of potential to be as big in the UK as the height they reached in the italian charts" - Tom Robinson, BBC Radio 6
"Play With You takes over your mind. It’s impressively commanding and luring" - Indiebudde.com
The band started out in 2005 under the name of No Gravity in Turin, a city surrounded by the Alps in the north of Italy, and originally featured twin brothers Diego Soncin (lead singer/guitarist) and Riccardo Soncin (bassist) along with Francesco Torrisi on the drums.
Covering Nirvana, Placebo, Muse and punk rock songs while steadily building a catalog of original material, they quickly gained notoriety around Italy for their look, their sound and brief but frantic live shows.
In 2009 they got signed from Bliss Corporation and reached #7 of the italian charts with the single Stelle, with the music video on heavy rotation on national Mtv.
After touring across the country several times, in 2012 drummer Francesco left the band, Dramalove split from the label and after a multiple changing of line-up the twin brothers were introduced by a friend in Milan to Dimitri Merati, who joined the band in occasion of their first east-European tour, with shows in Poland, Ukraine and Russia.
In 2015 Dramalove reached the semi-final stage of that year’s edition of the talent show X-Factor, of which the italian version allowed bands to apply and team up with artists such Skin from Skunk Annie and Mika. Even though they consider this an important and remarkable experience, this was one of the events that triggered the band’s desire to move away from Italy, looking for some more live music and less tv-oriented avenues.
Dramalove then relocated to the U.K. and fast gained a dedicated local following in Kent, and summer 2017 had them touring across the country with gigs all over the midlands and London. Their first english Ep is titled “How To Wear A Broken Heart”, with the single “Play With You” featured on BBC Radio 6 Introducing Mixtape and as a Fresh On The Net Fave by Tom Robinson.
The band recently played the 2018 edition of the alt Great Escape Festival in Brighton, headlined the Tunbridge Wells Forum and played the Tramlines Fringe Festival in Sheffield.
Dramalove will be soon embarking on a tour across UK and a few European dates, supporting their new release "Lady Macbeth" due to be released on June 2019.
