Fate, coincidence or divine intervention? Eugenia Post Meridiem took shape in Summer 2017 after three month travelling around Lisbon, when by chance Eugenia (voice, guitar) met Matteo (bass), Giovanni (guitar, keys) and Matteo (drums, percussion). The quartet soon melded together, blending Matteo’s bass and electronic music skills, Giovannis, psychedelic oriented guitar and Matteo’s deeply rooted percussive Jazz origins.
The initial meeting then led to the creation of a series of songs that not only showcased Eugenia’s wonderful voice and remarkable songwriting potentials, but also incorporated layers of soul, indie and folk influences. Alongside a pronounced inclination to 60s and 70s psychedelic tendencies, finely combined with 90’s sound textures all held together, interpreted and experienced via 4 completely different musical backgrounds.
In August 2018 at the Big Snuff Studio of Berlin the band recorded its first body of work: In Her Bones, released on October 11, 2019 and in Summer and Autumn of 2019 they were touring around Italy. The band also played at ESNS and MENT Ljubljana in January and February 2020, at WAVES Festival (Vienna) in September 2020 and were chosen as well for the INES talent pool 2020. Rolling Stone Italia also counted Eugenia Post Meridiem among the twenty italian music promises for 2020.
In 2021 the band recorded LIFE SLEEPER SIDE A and SIDE B (produced by Matteo Pavesi) at Fonoprint Studio in Bologna, and was released between Summer and Fall 2021. In September of the same year the band played at MIL Festival (Lisbon) and Reeperbahn Festival (Hamburg, Germany). Eugenia Post Meridiem have now recorded their second studio album ‘like I need a tension’ for Bronson Recordings, due to be released in November 2022.
