Sis Felix

Biography:

The Sis Felix band was born for the first time in 1985, after an idea of ​​Roberto Pellicano (singer) and Sandro Brescia (bassist). They were old friends and wanted to  spread their passion for post-punk and dark music in their city, Foggia, in Apulia.
In 1987, the band produced a demo tape with 4 original songs, which had a nice review on "Rockerilla" magazine, placing Sis Felix among the new generation of Italian Rock bands.
The band broke up, and then reunited in 2012,  joining new musicians around Roberto Pellicano and Sandro Brescia: Giuliano Parisi and Giuseppe Mallardo on guitars, Matteo Mucciarone on drums (from 1st Pseudofonia lineup) and Davide Cavallo on keyboards.

After resuming the live shows, mostly in the city of origin, the band was noticed by the head of RadioSpia records, already a fan of the band in the '80s. The seven guys, thus, started the production of two new songs, "
Motionless Thinking" and "Sorrow", focusing on an imprisoning search for answers to the existential questions. The songs express a pounding anxiety and a gloom belonging to dark-wave, updated with contemporary sounding solutions.

After months of work, the band and the producer have brought to light a record made of a conscious balance of fat precise sounds, which reports Joy Division, The Cure and David Bowie to these days, without imitating any of them. A modern musical style which enhances the dark side of each one of us and proposes itself as a chilling solution.

["Sis felix, Caeli, sis in amore potens"(Catullo, Carmi)]

With their debut, Sis Felix grasp the essence of reality and the questioning about their desires.
They wrap and exorcise the fear with these two post punk / wave songs, which end with a solution: “
We stop... and then have the strenght to start again".

Lyrics
(by Roberto Pellicano)

Motionless Thinking

Our thoughts lie motionless
without real solutions
in this dense atmosphere
full of unclear denials

Solutions vanishing in the void,
reserved space for / an eternal parking lot 
The time makes us lose the hope
of substance
Time makes us lose the hope
of concreteness

Distance rules and takes over.
so we are thinking motionless
and just our mindful introspection
can shed some light on us

Solutions vanishing in the void,
reserved space for an eternal parking lot
The time makes us lose the hope
of substance
Time makes us lose the hope
of concreteness

They vanish, vanish, vanish, vanish in our minds…


 
Sorrow

The face who knows and no longer lives
lost among faces and swaying in the dark
Will this Oblivion ever end?
It’s depriving us of essential reality

It doesn't make me feel so good
killing my potential energy
It doesn't make me feel so good
this peace makes me waste my faith

New emotions take my expressions back
your eyes stare at eternal emptiness
Waiting for a waking that never comes
There is something that doesn't live in me, now

It doesn't make me feel so good
Killing my potential energy
It doesn't make me feel so good
This peace makes me waste my faith

We stop and then have the strenght to start again
to start again, we start again.
