With the amazing release of Abisso by OVO it’s seems a ripe time for Bruno D’s other amazing band Ronin to make a reappearance. The iron being red hot this time they’ve chosen to strike a cinema nouveau chord with this stunning black and white video.
Trebuchet: Is there a particular thing you want to say with Fenice?
Bruno Dorella: Fenice means Phoenix, the mighty bird who rises from its ashes.
Before recording this album, I was about to stop the project, for different reasons. The other members of the band came to the city where I live, on the beach. We had lunch and we talked. After that, we were a stronger band. We started recording this album with an unknown energy, and somehow I feel like people are getting this power.
Trebuchet: Ronin can be read to mean a samurai without a master, what does it mean to you?
Bruno Dorella: It’s a little bit what we are. A Ronin is a Samurai who fails his task, which is the protection of his Master. He either betrays or he’s simply defeated. Anyway, after that he’s a Ronin. An unwelcome man with no value, who has to travel and live as a mercenary, and is often closer to a thug. But he’s still a warrior, a proud warrior. Often a loser.
Trebuchet: What is it about Folk that is ‘punk’ to you, and vice versa?
Bruno Dorella: Playing on the street is a super punk thing, for example. And if you play an acoustic guitar, you can sing everywhere, you can help workers on strike, spreading their reasons, like Bob Dylan did. With the simplicity of words and chords you can reach people’s hearts and minds easier. It’s honest and direct. Of course, when I mean “punk” I’m not talking about Sex Pistols, but about Crass and the anarcho-punk-squats scene.
