Italian goth-rock band Neiv is at RecordBar this Friday


Neiv is kind of creepy. The Italian trio makes dark, synthed-out rock music that is strangely reminiscent of the Talking Heads, if the Talking Heads were more inclined towards goth sounds. The band’s Friday night RecordBar show is one of only nine U.S. dates, so if you have a thing for either Italians or eyeliner – or Italians with eyeliner – you should pencil this one in.

In their videos, bassist Lorena, keyboard player Jennie and guitarist and lead singer PJ – none of the members use last names – are either entwined in some sort of sexily-depressed three-way (“Isola”) or glaring threateningly at viewers through gobs of black makeup and body paint (“Let Me Cry”). Neiv’s new album, the hopefully titled Euphoria, is due out this month.
