The Sensibles – s/t 7′′ EP OUT NOW

This "Italian job" will do more than blow the bloody doors off, they will bring the house down with their infectious blend of Power Pop/Punk.

"The Sensibles" a four piece outfit hailing from Milan, Italy consisting of Stella - Vocals, Giacomo - bass, Fili - Guitar and Ga - drums.

The band have a sound that is reminiscent of The Exploding Hearts, The Muffs and The Rezillos, full of classic, chopping guitar riffs, all driven along at a hundred miles an hour for the ultimate audible assault!

The Sensibles have been playing together since 2009 and have just pressed a D.I.Y 7" single in a limited edition run of just 300, there is, of course a digital download, but for the music puritans who like to hear their music in the purest form (that is on vinyl by the way!) then drop the band an e mail to the following address now to avoid disappointment:

On the bands Bandcamp page, you can also download their 4 song demo, which is also a rather excellent, high octane piece of pop punk and also, like the latest release, not one of the song goes up to the 3 minute mark, that is proper punk!

Download, stream and buy the latest sing and the free demo here: Bandcamp

  1. I know I've commented about this before but I think it bears repeating. I like the songs by the band but, as an relatively unknown band trying to build up a fanbase, I have to wonder why they are charging 1 euro (or $1.29) per song. More than Itunes or Amazon. It kind of strikes me as a bit arrogant. Needless to say, I think I'll pass.

  2. Hi Yankeeboy.

    I think that when you look to at how much studio time costs, mixing costs etc, taking out the time to write, rehearse, craft the songs, the price is quite reasonable. I put up many bands that give their music away for free, those bands may have the expendable income to do this for the exposure, but there are many that are not able to swallow that cost and have to charge to ensure that they are not paying to entertain us which really isn't the way it should be.
    Even as a blogger promoting bands I sometimes have to buy the albums, singles etc to blog them and however things turn out, I never make that money back, I do it because I love music, it is my entertainment and my passion, and to be honest, their is enough free music out there to balance things out financially, but as I mentioned earlier, not all bands are in a position to do that.
    If you go back in time and look at music in its basic form, for example, the wandering troubadour, he would travel village to village town to town and play for his food, if he played for free he would have starved to death, if he paid more to travel than he made to eat, he would have died eventually and we would have no entertainment.
    Of course it is your choice as to your decision to buy the record or not, but if you look at the fact that this particular band give their demo single of 4 tracks away for free, which is a good quality demo, you are actually only paying 65 cents (US) for each song and that is quite reasonable in my opinion.
    I completely respect your opinion as I hope you will mine.
    I hope you shall continue to read my blog, I try to maintain a good blend of music for my readers and I also endeavor to support the bands as much as I can.

    1. My comments were in no way intended to be a criticism of this blog which I visit often. Of course we all have our own opinion and can agree to disagree.

  3. Hi there!
    This is giacomo, from The Sensibles.

    Actually we set the price to 1€ without a real thinking.
    It seemed to be an easy and reasonable price.

    If you think it's too high, we'll seriously think about this.
    There are many ways to download the 7" (look at this: and we do encourage free download.

    We still think that buying music is a way to help the band (there are so many other ways to get the music without paying).

    Hope this answers your question!
    In the meantime, thanks for the feedback.

    Please, do not say we're arrogant! ;)
