BowLand is a musical project born in Florence between three high school friends who come from Tehran. BowLand’s music is a space where fluctuating atmospheres and unusual sounds merge with ethereal vocals and groovy rhythms. In 2017 their self-produced debut album, Floating Trip, is released; it’s the sum of their artistic influences from Massive Attack to Gorillaz, Cocorosie and Nicolas Jaar. In their songs words are a direct consequence of the music, with an almost invisible innate Middle Eastern soul that’s far from any kind of common stereotypical cliches. Their lyrics are mainly in English with occasional experiments in Farsi (Persian) and recently also in Italian. Genre-wise their music could be considered close to Trip Hop. In 2018, they participate in X Factor Italia and against all odds they make it all the way to the final live show, enchanting the Italian audience one performance after the other. One of their most important peculiarities that captivated the public is their unique blend of electronics with unusual instruments ranging from Didgeridoo and Jew’s Harp to random house objects. In December, of the same year, they release their new EP Bubble Of Dreams, anticipated by the single Don’t Stop Me, as a fresh remake of the original 2017 version. The track has more than 2 and a half million streams on Spotify. 2019 has been a great year for BowLand as well. They have toured intensely all over Italy with a lot of sold out shows and played their first international shows in Europe in August: Sziget Festival in Budapest and Barrakud in Croatia. In June they did their first ever Ted Talk at TedX Vicenza offering some insight into their unconventional music making process. Currently they have retreated to a rural house in the Tuscan countryside to write their second album which is expected to be finished in early 2020.
