The Bankrobber is an award winning Alternative Rock band who have been making waves in their home country of Italy for more than a decade. In 2009 they won the “Rock Targato Italia (Italian Branded Rock)” competition. That success led to years of successful tours throughout the peninsula. The awards and accolades kept coming with an “Artist of the Week” nod from MTV Italy in September, 2017. Throughout their endless touring they have shared the stage with artists like; Dropkick Murphys, Graham Candy, A Toys Orchestra, Appino, Il Pan del Diavolo and many more.
In 2018 the band won the Akademia Music Awards in Los Angeles, CA. That notoriety ultimately produced a world tour. Throughout 2019 the band travelled Europe, performing in the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and the Czech Republic. Of course, 2020 put that schedule on hold for a while. However the band kept busy in the recording studio. Now they are following up last year’s successful single “Blood” with a brand new bit of Indie-Folk melancholy.
“Carry Me On” is the latest single from The Bankrobber, released worldwide by Wires Records to all major streaming services on May 14, 2021. The song is included in the soundtrack to the acclaimed short film “Amore Cane” by Italian director Jordi Penner. The song is a beautiful, dark and romantic ballad. With it’s slow waltz swing and Lo-fi acoustic/vocal arrangement the track brings to mind the heartbreak of Alternative singer/songwriters legends like Elliot Smith and Bright Eyes crooner Conor Oberst. A touch of distortion on the lead vocal and occasional, carefully placed backing harmonies add a hint of psychedelia to the song’s timeless sound.
