Madness at Home are a young trio born and raised in Rome. Influenced by artists like Kyuss, Nirvana and Melvins, the band’s mission is to bring back that obsolete sound from the late 80’s and early 90’s. Their sound is dirt, distorted, untrendy. The lyrics are focused on sudden feelings and repressed thoughts, flowing as a stream of consciousness without any logical meaning. They are releasing their first eponymous EP, and spoke with The Fountain about it below.
TF: You have a new EP out, what has the reception been like?
Maybe it’s too soon for talking about good or bad reception. We don’t have a real fanbase yet, and we are still working with the label we’re just signed to, to get more visibility. So we want to wait to say something about it. But we are pretty confident.
TF: How would you sum up the record in one sentence?
Some sort of distressed prayers, visceral urge and pointless thoughts.
TF: What is your plan for the remainder of the year, after this release?
We’re already working on brand new songs for our first album in this very year. Meanwhile we’re making a lot of rehearsal, hoping to play live again as soon as possible with a better show and better music, possibly in Europe, were we can be more appreciated.
TF: Where is your favourite venue for playing live, where is the next place you look most forward to gigging?
If we have to choose a venue or a live club were we played before, for sure, we vote for the Defrag, a music club, social and culture promoter place in Rome. For the future, we don’t have a place in particular. We just want to go back on the stage, wherever it is, without the social distancing or time limits. Even a big dirty lavatory could be ok.
