Love in Elevator are an Italian rock band formed in 2004 in Venice. The band’s line-up includes founder Anna Carazzai (lead vocals, guitar), Federico Mellinato (bass guitar) and Andrea Volpato (drums, percussion, synth, backing vocals). BSM is pleased to present their new single ‘Breeders’ taken from forthcoming LP Lies to Stars, set for release on 18 April via the coalition of Lagoonar/Riff Records/Fuzzy Cluster Records.
Love in Elevator’s grunge-oriented style of dark, noise-rock music has evolved over the years, with elements of post-punk in their debut EP Venoma (2004) and first full-length album Sue Me (2005). Their second LP Re-Pulsion (2008), featured Franz Valente on drums and produced by Giulio Ragno Favero from Il Teatro degli Orrori. This was followed up by a third album Il Giorno dell’Assenza (2010) which was produced by Marco Fasolo of Jennifer Gentle and featured Verdena members Alberto and Luca Ferrari.
In January 2017, the band released a 7” double A side single, ‘Unlocked//Beyond Your Inner Sea’, which leaned into a more heavy art-rock, dream-pop direction. Love in Elevator then toured extensively across Europe, including the UK. They were selected as the official support band by post-punk, grunge and hard-core icons Shellac (USA), Mudhoney (USA), Meat Puppets (USA) and Refused (S) in their previous tours. Love in Elevator were also featured in the line-up of some of Europe’s largest festivals: Rock in Idro (2005) (sharing the stage with Juliette Lewis and the Licks, Turbonegro, the Hives) and All Tomorrow’s Parties UK (2012) (with Neurosis, Mono, Kim Deal and many others).
