Their songs are refuge, shelter and strength for those who today go from adolescence to wing and beyond. here is the their comment at the news of the new recognition obtained: “We are honored to receive the Best Italian Act of the EMA. In recent times we have been reaching great goals, such as the tour in the stadiums, which until a few years ago would have been unthinkable. When writing songs it is important to have an open mind and be influenced by everything you listen to because music is the most cosmopolitan and fluid art there is. Being recognized at European level, especially for people like us who have lived abroad, flatters us: it makes us feel European citizens, as well as Italians. Thanks a lot to those who voted for us and therefore allowed us to obtain this award “.
