Irene Facheris – Tre Giorni a Milano
When I hear a tune and a voice like Irene Facheris’s and the song is not in my native English, it makes me wish I’d spent some time learning a foreign language. I guess it is never too late to start, but hey, I’m a lazy old man. Here on Tre Giorni a Milano (Google’s translation into English is: Three Days in Milan) from Ms. Facheris’ latest (November 2014) long-player, Allontanarsi Dalla Linea Giallal (Move Away from the Yellow Line), Facheris transcends the language barrier with this infectious tune.
The video hints at a sadness in the events Irene sings of, with an ferocious intensity. Irene’s voice is a strong Alto. She sings along with a light electronic beat and her acoustic guitar for most of the song. During the bridge, the instruments build, adding a great electric guitar lick.
