WALLS are a band from London made up of members Sam Willis (of ALLEZ-ALLEZ) and Alessio Natalizia (of BANJO OR FREAKOUT). Originally from Manchester, but based in London since '96, Willis has long been an admirer of the Cologne sound, instilling his productions (and dj mixes for the influential podcast series located at www.allez-allez.co.uk) with the euphoric, pop sensibilities and deep grooves that are a KOMPAKT hallmark. Natalizia hails from Vasto, Italy but relocated to London in 2008 to pursue his musical dreams - driven by the wild guitar of This Heat and propulsive rhythms of Can as well as Burial's inner city atmospherics and soul. The pair met in 2009 while ALLEZ-ALLEZ were remixing BANJO OR FREAKOUT’s “Mr. No”, they quickly realized that the natural combination of Alessio’s and guitar play and haunting vocals together with Willis’ emotive synth lines and sample manipulation magic was a match made in heaven. Having already applied their unique sonic touch on remixes for THE FIELD's 'Leave It' and PANTHA DU PRINCE's future anthem 'Stick To My Side feat. Panda Bear' the pair's highly anticipated self titled debut is set for release on Kompakt in late April.
