Mushy is the solo project of Valentina Fanigliulo, a sound-experimentalist rising from the dusty ruins of Rome, the eternal city.
Her style combines and synthesizes electronica, shoegaze, blues and new-wave, with a psychedelic/kraut soul. Her soundscape-like compositions reveal
a spellbinding universe that emerges from the mixture of analog drum machines, burgeoning cold drones, tempestuous noises and spectral chants.
She has been deeply inspired by the works of Cocteau Twins, Dead Can Dance, Slowdive, Lush, Minimal Compact, New Order, Swans, Nico, and legendary singers Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald.‘Faded Heart’, her debut album, has been released by Italian underground label Mannequin Records on Feb 2011.The album was picked as Rough Trade’s "Album Of The Week", in March 2011 and was described as the most convincing European answer to contemporaneous releases by American artists such as Zola Jesus and Tamaryn. Mannequin Recs on November 19th 2012 released “Breathless” where artist takes the blueprint laid down on her last album and it blows it up to an analogue hd, a deep, evocative and immersive listening experience that cocoons the listener in sensory loss and ecstasy simultaneously. Her last work has been again "Album Of The Week" and "Album of The Month" by Rough Trade.
