Six Impossible Things Are “Twenty Something”
After two EPs as a duo, Six Impossible Things take a major step by involving two more members in the project and thus incorporating a full band sound in its own right.
“Twenty Something”, out Tuesday, June 6, 2023, is the single that ushers in the new direction for the duo, and it is also the first track taken from the forthcoming EP, “The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living”, which will see the light in 2023.
“Twenty Something” is a song in which Six Impossible Things’ now-familiar style, influenced by genres such as dream pop, emo and post-rock, is instantly recognizable, but this time enriched and made fuller by the incorporation of the full band sound. Despite the greater sonic charge, the duo has not lost that almost confessional feeling of intimacy that has always characterized their songs.
The song was written and composed by Lorenzo Di Girolamo, guitarist and one of the band’s two vocalists, who commented:
“I’m entering my thirties next month, so I decided to write and release a song about my twenties. It’s a tribute to the last ten years of my life, and I thought: ‘When, if not now?’. This was the only song on the record that was written before the pandemic, and the only song written entirely by me (except for an interlude), so it’s a little bit different when compared to the rest of the EP (weird choice for a single, I know). Nostalgia-soaked lyrics and emo-guitar-driven choruses, instead of the darker approach to the lyrics and melodies that characterize the rest of the songs on the record.”
Six Impossible Things are getting ready to release their third EP, “The Physical Impossibility Of Death In The Mind Of Someone Living”, which will be out in September. Nicky and Lorenzo wrote and produced the 5-track project, collaborating with producer Maurizio Baggio on vocals, mix and mastering and with musicians from the italian Post-Hardcore bands What We Lost and Sittingthesummerout.
