Six Impossible Things Captures A Decade Of Life With “Twenty Something”

After two EPs as a duo, Six Impossible Things haven take a major step by adding two more members in the project, and thus incorporating a full band sound. Their latest single, “Twenty Something”, shows this new direction and it is also the first track taken from the forthcoming EP, The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living which will arrive later in 2023.

“Twenty Something” combines genre influences from Dream Pop, Emo and Post-Rock, but maintains a confessional feeling.

The song was written and composed by Lorenzo Di Girolamo, guitarist and one of the band’s two vocalists, who says:

I’m entering my thirties next month, so I decided to write and release a song about my twenties. It’s a tribute to the last ten years of my life, and I thought: ‘When, if not now?’. This was the only song on the record that was written before the pandemic, and the only song written entirely by me (except for an interlude), so it’s a little bit different when compared to the rest of the EP (weird choice for a single, I know). Nostalgia-soaked lyrics and emo-guitar-driven choruses, instead of the darker approach to the lyrics and melodies that characterize the rest of the songs on the record.

For the new EP, Nicky Fodritto and Lorenzo Di Girolamo wrote and produced the 5-track project, collaborating with producer Maurizio Baggio on vocals, mix and mastering, along with musicians from the Italian Post-Hardcore bands What We Lost and Sittingthesummerout.

The band previously released EPs I Tried To Run Away From Here in 2019 and Sometimes You Fall Asleep In Front Of Me in 2021 and toured across Europe, including gigs with Delta Sleep, Hickeys, Flor and many others.
