Phinx’ s project was launched in 2007. The group is formed by Francesco Fabris (production, voice, guitar, synths, piano), Pietro Secco (bass, synths), Alberto Paolini (drums, percussions) and Daniele Fabris (synths, sequencers). The band, right in its first year of activity, released “Bunker”, a self- produced seven pieces demo which takes its name from the original recording studio used since the beginning of its musical production. By the year 2010 Phinx’s debut album “Login” is completed and published by “IRMA records” from Bologna. From then on the band embarked on a prolonged series of live concerts and acoustic performances (more than one hundred dates effected throughout Italy and abroad) in rock clubs, public events and music festivals, playing often side by side with well-known names as Kap Bambino, A Place to Bury Strangers, Beady Eye, Alex Metric, Congorock, Roy Pace & Aretuska, Mgz, Ministri, Verdena, Motel Connection. The band’s first single, “The Gamer”, whose related video won a special prize at 2010 P.I.V.I contest by MEI in Faenza, Italy, was aired in many radios and independent networks. The following single, “Italian Job”, was picked up as “single of the week” by ITunes and played in more than 150 Italian and foreign radios”. Their self-made, no-budget, recorded in the band’s home garden related video has been routinely shown on Deejay TV, Rock TV, Music Box Italia 2 and MTV with New Generation music channel and American Iggy platform, designed to promote the most interesting international artists. 2010 also marks the release of their single, again named “Login”, together with a related no-budget video, later adopted and implemented in different versions by some video-makers and subject to several remixes by some other music producers. The year 2011 marks another remarkable step in the band’s intense activity; a new artistic project is launched in cooperation with the Roman choreographer Michele Mastroianni and his four fellow dancers ensemble. The resulting enchanting performance, based on live music, dancing, light design and visual projections, named “A Wall Door”, has been staged with great success at the Bolzano Dance Festival, at the Teatro Comunale di Vicenza and lately at the Olimpico Theatre in Rome. After a year and a half spent touring a lot to promote their “Login” album, Phinx decided to pause and work in their studio for a full six-months period, wholly devoted to create a new production, very much different from their earlier produce: a new album called ”Hòltzar”.
