Inner Skin Says Lots on Themselves and the Music They Create!

Alternative rockers INNER SKIN was started by a mere musical projected which would lead to what and where they have come to be now. During their start up until now, the band has released nothing but single's with way more underway! Find out what else had to be said from the band, about themselves and their music.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

INNER SKIN had an unusual start: it started as a project more than a band, then, later on, it became also a band as the two founders musicians took on board two additional musicians to play live. It all started when Giorgio Ranciaro, drummer and band manager, after years of living in Amsterdam moved to Rome and thanks to an introduction call from the friend and producer Fabio Trentini (Guano Apes, H Bock's and many more) met Alberto Frasson. The understanding and connection was so instantaneous that Fabio, Alberto and Giorgio immediately went to work on Alberto's demos. Shortly after, WHISPERS, an energetic pop rock song and ONCE, a ballad with rhythm changes and plastic sounds are born. Then it came the production of some video clips including the one for POISON. This video has been among the finalists of movie festivals such as the Jelly Fest and The Rockfest - an epic showcase of the greatest music videos from around the world taking place in the heart of Hollywood, CA -. and also a nominee in the 11th Los Angeles New Media Film Festival, for Best of Category, Audience and / or Grand Prize Awards. Judges from Marvel, HBO, FOX. Recently also BROTHERS video and song were released. Find everything on our you tube channel.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

INNER SKIN was originally the name of the song that is now called "ONCE". We thought that INNER SKIN was so evocative as our skin connects us to the outside world, but our inner skin connects us to our intimacy and what better way to do it than through our musical language? So we decided to use INNER SKIN for the name of our band.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

the band was originally born in Rome with Alberto, Giorgio and Fabio Trentini (external producer) plus two additional musicians, Tristan Pesarini on guitar, who arrived after a few line up changes and Francesco Tripaldi on bass. With this line-up we started doing concerts in central and northern Italy and in the summer of 2020 we would have had to do various gigs, all unfortunately postponed due to COVID19. There are plenty of good bands and artists here in Italy, just to mention some, our friends Zagreb from north east Italy, and Daniela Ciampitti, Dany, from Rome too and another cool band called WakeUPCall. I’m going to forget someone for sure !!

4. How would you describe your style?

We are an alternative rock band. But it must be said that the style is uniquely defined by Alberto's own way of writing, with dark sounds sought after already in pre-production. Then everything gets further optimized in the production phase. Let’s say that the result could be defined as a modern and never predictable genuine alt. rock.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have currently published 5 singles:"WHISPERS" was the first song, than “ONCE", “POISON” "CARE", and "BROTHERS" and two official video clips, then there is also (May 2020) an unofficial video of a song that we have not yet published called LONE SLEEPER and which we will publish this summer.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Definitely. In this lock down period, we have finished producing the third of three new singles that we have yet to release and Alberto has written new songs. Despite the world wide situation, it is a very intense and productive period for us.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

2020 had in the works a good number of live concerts here in Italy. Unfortunately, because of COVID19, everything has been canceled, so we are waiting for the summer / autumn to be able to reschedule some gigs. In 2021, we plan to start playing abroad, especially in Germany, perhaps as an open act for some known band.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Surely playing live as much as possible, continuing to publish singles, writing new songs, shooting new video clips, increasing our social reputation and evaluating the opportunity to sign with some labels or majors that can bring added value to our work.
