Hailing from Venice, Italy, The Transisters are the new wave / post-punk quartet of Matteo (bass, vocals), Enrico (guitar, vocals), Roberto (synths), and Meson (drums). During the past 3 years they have played everywhere in Italy and opened for Kaiser Chiefs, The Raveonettes, and White Rose Movement among others.
Their debut album Under Control was released last July by the German netlabel afmusic and its anxious beats, angular guitars, and sober vocals immediately stroke a chord with fans of Joy Division, Bauhaus, Gang Of Four, and She Wants Revenge. Amidst an Italian indie scene where, according to Matteo, “the average level of quality of bands is not so high”, The Transisters’ blend of electronic music with solid rock riffs certainly stick outs. Keep an eye on them.
