Big Mountain County
Big Mountain County is a psychsexrock band based in Rome, Italy. In just a few years the band has earned international acclaim for their European and UK tours and participation in festivals such as ESNS, Fusion Festival, Binic Folks Blues Festival (France), SZIGET Festival and Rome Psych Fest, where the press unanimously declared them “best live band 2016”. After having published their first LP “Breaking Sound” in 2015 (Gas Vintage Records) and the live album “Anachronicle” (Area Pirata Records) the year after, in 2020 the band released its second studio LP “Somewhere Else” (Porto Records). We’re talking killer riffs side-by-side with soaring vocals and synths that color midnight melodies. The songs range from personal narratives to journeys down an existential abyss - all of them carried by heart-felt grooves. In January 2022, Big Mountain County released a new EP “Klaus”, with three original songs and two remixes signed by Al Lover, cult name of the international psych scene, and Hugo Sanchez, cult Rome-based DJ and producer. The song "The Klaus Crossing" has been included in the Spotify worldwide editorial playlist "All New Rock".
