Song of the Day: Verdena – Chaise Longue


Verdena were born in 1995 thanks to Alberto Ferrari (vocals, guitar), his brother Luca (drums) and Roberta Sammarelli. In September 1999 their debut album, Valvonauta, produced by Giorgio Canali, was released to inaugurate the recording contract with Black Out / Universal. In 2001 the EP Spaceman was released, followed by the second album Solo un grande sasso, recorded in Mauro Pagani’s Studio Next with the production of Manuel Agnelli. At the beginning of 2004 the third album, Il suicidio dei samurai, is released, anticipated by the EP Luna. In 2007 Verdena released their fourth album, Requiem, which like the previous one is also released in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and Spain. In June 2007 the EP Caños is released, which marks a change in sound: the electronic influences begin to occupy a significant portion of the disc.

The band’s fifth album, Wow, was released in January 2011 and won the gold record, while the vinyl debuted in second place in the Fimi chart. In 2015 what is still their latest album released, divided into two volumes, Endkadenz Vol. 1 and Endkadenz Vol. 2. After presenting it with a very successful tour, Verdena in 2016 continue their concerts with a series of dates in Europe. In September 2016 an EP was released in collaboration with Iosonouncane, entitled Split. In January 2022, the band released Latin America – music inspired by the film, a collection of instrumental pieces composed and orchestrated for the soundtrack of the homonymous film by the D’Innocenzo brothers, and nominated for the recent David di Donatello. Here’s Chaise Longue from their last album Volevo Magia, enjoy it!
