Leatherette are Andrea, Francesco, Jacopo, Marco and Michele. Formed in 2018, they are based in Bologna, Italy. Their name comes from the iconic single "Warm Leatherette" by The Normal.
Leatherette almost sound like a mockery of rock music and its aesthetics – simultaneously embraced and refused; ragged.
Their music is a potpourri of punk outbursts, jazzy atmospheres and hints of no wave – generating a rich and composite sound, sometimes warm and cozy, sometimes harsh, scratchy and unpredictable.
Genre: Jazz, Rock, Post-Punk
