NEW YORK, 03 FEB – Maneskin’s run towards the Grammys continues: after appearing live on Tuesday with the song ‘Baby Said’ from the third and last album ‘Rush!’ on the stage of the Late Show with James Corden, the Italian band nominated for the music awards of February 5 opens today the ‘Variety’ website as “the major rock group to emerge in recent years”. “At a certain point the narrative changed”, Damiano David told the ‘bible’ of entertainment who interviewed the four in January in a Roman hotel: “The ‘why we can’t be famous’, became ‘why ‘ no?'”. According to ‘Variety’, which traces its history – from the school of Monteverde Vecchio to the collaboration with Max Martin, the most successful song creator of the last 25 years, from Eurovision 2021 to the Coachella, Lollapalooza and Rio festivals up to the nomination as ‘best new artist’ – Maneskin are the rare traditional rock band to break through at this level: “The most unfamiliar part is that they come from Italy, which is not particularly famous as an incubator of international rock talent”. For Cbs, which interviewed them in Los Angeles where they arrived in view of the awards, the Maneskin’s was “an improbable journey towards global success”. “We gave our generation a new sound,” said David, 24, sporting a new shaved head, but CBS noted the success of the four even among the moms of their peers to whom the group offers “something familiar ”. Sunday night’s Grammys could be the crowning glory: Gold Derby bookies following the show’s awards give the four in second place to Anitta: “But the nomination is already a big deal. We’ve had an incredible year and we knew it. With the candidacy now the whole world knows”, Damiano said on behalf of the band that the day after tomorrow he will have to face, as well as with the favorite Anitta, also Wet Leg, Latto, Muni Long, Omar Apollo, Samara Joy, Domi and JD Beck, Molly Tuttle and Tobe Nwigwe. Come what may, on February 9 they will be back on stage at the Sanremo festival for the third time in a row after winning in 2001 with Zitti e Buoni. (HANDLE).
