The Alans are: Alex Malaguti, vocals, and Andrea Chirico, arranger and multi-instrumental guitarist, both active in the Italian underground for more than 20 years. Their project was born during the first lockdown with cycles of online creative sessions, driven by the need to put current issues to music, from politics to civic sense, from feelings to human relationships, with an invitation to reflection and introspection. In May 2021 their first single Tempi bui was released, placing itself at number 30 in the independent charts as a self-produced single, followed by STORIA PERFETTA released in January 2023.
NERO is the their first EP, preceded by the release of the single of the same name at the beginning of April. Andiamo al Mare, the summer single released in July 2023 reaches prominent positions in some of the most renowned Italian indie charts, deserving praise mentions in some of the most important publications including ALLMUSIC ITALIA, ROCKIT, Onda Musicale and SkyTg24.com
Electro rock arrangements that look to a glorious past, a sound clearly inspired by the 90s, a fast-paced rhythm: for ALAN making music means taking sides, not being afraid to say what you think, trying to subvert the system.
