So, Rock the South is back at Zion on Friday and Saturday this weekend, and with it a host of Malta’s top bands and 2 foreign offerings, French duo Côme and (once again) AIM.
Côme are French duo François Byrski on guitarist and Lucas Barbier on drums. The 2 operate under the umbrella term indie-rock, which could really mean anything these days so best thing to do is to enjoy a sneak preview:
You can also listen to the full EP on Soundcloud
Those who attended one of AIM’s 3 gigs in Malta roughly around this time last year know what to expect. The 4 Milanesi describe their sound as “a kinda brianza, foggy, psychedelic rock”. Their debut album Limit of Sight was described by critics as reminiscent of bands like At The Drive In, Brand New, Thursday and Funeral For A Friend. You can read the full interview I carried out with them last year here.
AIM will be performing on Friday April 5, while Côme will be performing on Saturday April 6. For a full programme and list of bands, visit the official Rock the South Facebook page here. Check out this space later on this week for a focus on the participating Maltese bands and DJs.
