Fine Italian noise pop band Ofeliadorme have released their new video ‘Ian’ apparently its a tribute to late Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, bask in its waves of majesty below. It’s their first video off their forthcoming new album ‘All Harm Ends Here’.

Ofelia Dorme hail from Bologna, Italy. The band started after Francesca Bono and Gianluca Modica had known each other, and after some time the pair exchanged songwriting ideas, and were so pleased with the results that they decided to make their project into a permanent affair. After some time electric and electronic incursions appeared and 2 new members joined the crew: Tato Izzia and Michele Postpischl. So they founded the band in 2007.

Inside the band everyone plays different instruments, searching for the right balance between sperimentation and creative and executive freedom. The intimate dimension of their music, even when playing an electric set, can recall the atmospheres of artists such as Cat Power, Nick Drake, Portishead; the most characteristic features of their material are minimalist style, sparse guitars and breathy, flirty, yet strong vocals.

Ofelia Dorme’s music combine a wide variety of influences.They juxtapose stark acoustic tracks and abrasive indie rock with typically cryptic lyrics. Francesca’s lyrics are combinig raw intimacy with a gruff, chalky confidence, her lines belie an otherwordly perspective on primal human emotions. After their first live performances in clubs all over Italy, Ofelia Dorme recorded a self-produced EP with 6 songs, titled “Sometimes it’s better to wait”. The band played London,Manchester and Bruxelles and wants to gig around Europe, everywhere it’s possible. The band contributed with the demo version of one of their songs to 3 compilations by 3 different labels.
The new album “All harm ends here” will be out in 2011.
