We're a progressive rock band from Italy, and you're not!
Since 2008 we compose original music by taking inspiration from artists we like. We never write down with a blueprint in mind, we listen to almost everything from J.S.Bach to Meshuggah, and we do like to mix them all. We like to use original vintage instruments but we wouldn’t say we play progressive rock because we use Minimoog or Hammond Organ. We were once labeled “a complex rock band” and we like this definition best.
The appellative “Gran Turismo” was born here in Italy in the late ’60s – early ’70s and then exported all over the world. We do think it is something Italian to be proud of and we hope that our music will follow the same path. By the way, Alfa Romeo’s “Veloce” cars had no frills and went strictly to the heart of competition; we try to do the same: no trappings, we just boost our creative engines.
