Black Eyed Dog: Heartbreaker


Black Eyed Dog are an intense, contagious and sonical assault brougth by this three piece band consisting of Fabio Parrinello, Anna Balestrieri and Alessandro Falzone from the deep south of Italy: Sicily, the land of alternative italian sound.

Black Eyed Dog, a clear homage to Nick Drake, turn around the personality of Fabio Parrinello that, from Varese – Italy – to London and across Europe, showed his enigmatic and eccentric talent among pubs and clubs to rise through the ranks. After a 4 year journey – at that time Fabio P was the only one component of Black Eyed Dog –  he released his debut Love Is A Dog From Hell (inspired by Charles Bukowsky’ poetic), in 2007 via Ghost Records (Varese, Italy).
Thanks to the sophomore album Rhaianuledada (Songs to Sissy), the singer-songwriter took part to SXSW – South by SouthWest to Austin, in Texas: music, film and interactive conference and festival, followed by a small tour dates in The Big Apple (NY). Later on, Anna Balestrieri and Al Falzone joined Fabio P and together released the third album Too Many Late Nights, via 800A Records, mixed by Hugo Race (Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds) and J.D. Foster (Calexico, Marc Ribot, Vinicio Capossela).
Today, the band launch the video for their last track Heartbreaker, first single out of the forthcoming album Kill Me Twice, scheduled to be released on April 14th this year. The track is been produced by already mentioned Hugo Race and recorded at 800A studios in Palermo.

Heartbreaker mashs up the introspective blues talent of frontman with the elctro pop-punk attitude that just a music ensemble can add to the global result.
The outcome is so calledd PunkRomanticPsychoBlues, a sort of “all one” approach that gives structure and depth to singer-songwriter’ original sound. Those syncopated and dark shadows enveil the new band’s route you can check here below.
