Here’s a wonderful treat for you today a few tracks from a great sounding group from the UK. Welcome Miccoli.
Miccoli, their name taken from the sibling trio’s surname, formed in 2010 after spending most of their childhood studying and making music. Growing up in Birmingham, England, they were brought up listening to Simon and Garfunkel, Don Mclean, The Police, Fleetwood Mac and the sounds of Motown, to name just a few of their diverse musical influences.
Twin brothers Adriano (vocal and acoustic/electric guitar) Alessandro (piano, vocal and acoustic guitar) and their younger sister Francesca (vocal, piano and harmonica) have toured extensively, giving the band the opportunity to explore their musical identity and fine tune their live set – a compelling blend of haunting, melodic and eclectic sounds, interlaced with breathtaking harmonies.
So, do we want to hear some music? You betcha.
First up their awesome beautiful new single, Idle Stranger, a true gem from the opening chords. The harmonies are gentle and sublime, the backing instrumentation is so good it’s surreal. Chill inducing sounds all through this track. Beautifully filmed in Venice, Italy this is a video to savour. This track has the promise to become a number one hit.
I do like to hear new bands cover other artists songs, and I always say if you are going to do it, pick a great song and do it well. Miccoli more than do that, they take this Fleetwood Mac classic and totally own it. They impart a very different feel into this beautiful track. I just love it.
Here’s another great song, beautifully sung by Miccoli. Their harmonies as always sublime. This young group really deserve to go far if they keep producing awesome music like this.

One last cover, this is the Tracy Chapman classic re-imagined Miccoli style. I remember when Tracy Chapman first released this song, we were all astounded by such a great song from a new young talent. It blew up the charts. And this version gives the same impression, a worthy do over for a classic song.
Finally today a bitter-sweet (too short) teaser for their forthcoming album to be released later this year.
