Andrea Pizzo and The Purple Mice  – Bombshell Review

Andrea Pizzo and The Purple Mice  - Bombshell Review

Andrea Pizzo and The Purple Mice know a straight line from a crooked one, but what’s the fun in simply walking into someone else’s steps? Instead, the Italian group brings in a host of intriguing, often quirky ideas to their latest single. 

If it is true that one’s work should first please the author, then it sounds like The Purple Mice won’t have reasons to leave disappointed after crafting their latest couple of songs. Mixing their interest in Old Hollywood, classic alternative rock and pop hooks, the group, led by Andrea Pizzo, is on a mission to, first and foremost, be true to themselves. 

The single’s A-side “Bombshell” is a tune dedicated and written about Hedy Lamarr, one of classic Hollywood’s great beauties. The sense of conflict that the song captures also mirrors Lamarr’s own dramatic existence. Her work as an inventor was unfairly discredited for decades, and as the song bluntly states, her physical beauty was as much a curse as it was a blessing. The song features an intriguing use of synth-arpeggios, as well as Pizzo’s impassioned vocals. 

The single’s b-side, “The Ballad of Alan Mathison”, further works to create The Purple Mice’s world, one inhabited by mavericks dreaming impossible dreams and daring to try and achieve incredible feats of ingenuity. 

The music includes an almost goth-rock sense of drama, something that fits the story of Alan Mathison Turin, the eccentric, tortured father of modern computer science. 

Andrea Pizzo and The Purple Mice have a unique touch and like to bring their quirkiness centre stage. Their goal sounds to be to meld together pop sensibilities with their own set of unique quirks. Their mission is so far on course to being completed.
