Brooklyn Based Underground System Premieres New Video
The EP release "Bella Ciao" is the first taste of what's to come for Underground System. A menagerie of the best kind - part Baile Funk MCing, part Italian folk song, part Afrobeat anthem - starting somewhere modern, dark, and late night club friendly, bringing it back just in time to a bouncy and deceptively light feel, the whole while grounded in the timeless sensibility and authority of a killer live band. Set to music by founder Peter Matson and front woman Domenica Fossati and given life by the bands collective work in arrangement, the ever-evolving personalities and influences on this record shine brighter than ever.
Brooklyn based band Underground System new video:
The Music video for Bella Ciao takes place at a 'zumba-esque' fitness class gone terribly wrong. Frontwoman Domenica Fossati (a real life certified Zumba instructor and African Dancer) whips the band and friends into a frenzied dance, emphasizing the closing lyrics of the song: MORTO PER LA LIBERTÀ (Die for freedom)
The 'bella ciao' video is a first step in a slew of upcoming Underground System productions slated for release. Next up is the bella ciao remix EP, featuring flips from an eclectic and established assortment of NYC electronic/DJ heads including Archie Pelago, Chief Boima, Kassa Overall, and Big Everything. Also be on the lookout for tour dates (including this friday 4/4 at Rockwood Music Hall, tickets here: http://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/518945 ) + more original singles and videos to come in the summertime."
