Dramalove began in September 2007, with twins Diego and Riccardo Soncin accompanied by drummer Francesco Torrisi.
Initially, the band went by the name Hyper Sound and performed covers of hits by Nirvana, Placebo, Muse and Smashing Pumpkins. But, on discovery of another band by the same name, the group became No Gravity, before rebranding as Dramalove and commencing creation of their own original material.
The name Dramalove represents the balance between good and evil, light and dark, love and fear.
"Nothing in the Universe can exist without balance; ultimately, we could not experience life without death." in Diego's words.
Originally from north Italy, where they've reached the semi-finals of the Italian X-Factor and had the opportunity to team up with well-known artists such as Skin from Skunk Anansie and 2008 BRIT Award Winner Mika, the two twin brothers Diego and Riccardo relocated in the U.K. some two years ago to make their dreams come true in what they believe is the homeland of rock music.
Their energy and unique sound propelled them to gain a dedicated following and to headline well known venues such as the Ramsgate Music Hall and the Tunbridge Wells Forum, tour the country with pub gigs and get hosted by Mark Beaumont on his NME Presents nights in London.
After spending two years in Kent, they’re now based in Brighton (East Sussex).
"These guys have a big sound made for big stages; like listening to the raw energy of early Muse with perhaps more passion." - Lisa Higgins, The Guardian
Despite being a three-piece band, Dramalove creates a much fuller sound with complex rhythms, powerful bass lines and big guitar riffs.
The new single "Lady Macbeth" is their most recent work and is available now on each and every music streaming platform.
The single was inspired by the Lady Macbeth effect, a psychological state named after the infamous Shakespearean play. This condition often manifests following events that trigger extreme feelings of shame or guilt, and exaggerates the desire for physical cleanliness to rid oneself of moral "dirtiness".
