Inude is the moniker of an al-pop trio born in the South of Italy in 2014 consisting of Giacomo, Flavio and Francesco.
Their latest single ‘Ballad1‘ is an introspective, slow-burning song built upon melancholic arrangements and a liberating chorus. Something fans of early Alt-J will certainly love.
Speaking about the song, they share: “When someone betrays our trust, we automatically feel like we’re the ones who have been wronged. Always the victims, never the offender -and all caught up in our rage, pain, and disappointment, we witness the unrelenting demise of the tiny world we built around ourselves. How hard is it to forgive? How hard is it to take a look in the mirror and see ourselves as the cause of a betrayal, no matter how passive our role might have been? I wanted to go back to a normal life, I wanted to fill every room of a echoing and empty house, to take care of simple everyday tasks, even if it meant to fight with my bare fists for the first time.”
About the video, they add: “Objects, trees, house walls too—they all observe what happens around them. They are indifferent and still witnesses, soaking up discussions, fights, moods and energies.
As all things flow, some places become troves of faces, expressions, and situations we might all of a sudden feel trapped into. So much it could push a man to look for his own reflection—until he will have found and recognized himself again, there, present.”
