I don’t often listen to Neapolitan bands, I must admit, either due to a lack of supply or a narrow mind. Pipers, a three piece from the lovely Italian city have been bubbling away in the streets of Naples for a while now, and have developed their sound from electric-tinged indie pop to a more mature, layered alt-folk pop sound with more than a slice of Britpop in there. New song Edge of Nowhere starts with loose strumming and a layered vocal before bursting into catchy guitar strums and urgent melodies. Complete lulls in instruments throughout allow each dimension to shine, and there are plenty of them, with bass, mandolin, backing vocals from Stoo, Marco on drums and backing vocals and Stefano supplying vocals, guitar, piano, harmonica. The smooth ‘do you feel’ towards the end is seduces before an abrupt end and a click to repeat. Must be that Italian charm.  Recorded at Casa Lavica in Naples Italy and mixed & mastered in Wolverhampton UK by Gavin Monaghan, the song is available to download for free.
