Mimes of Wine / Press

“Blow Up: A crystal clear and tormented voice, pronounce of an international level, a piano always present, a viola, and noises: Laura Loriga, in her French-Californian pilgrimage has assembled a mature work of partial and serious claustrophobia, which enriches with little sounds and nuances jazzy-Bjork the bucolic path of Francesca Lago also thanks to collaborations with Enzo Cimino and the old companions of the bands from Bologna”.”

“Rockit: Mimes of Wine manages to incorporate within its music the ghost of emotions, from the first letter of the alphabet to the last one. It manages to sculpt a little sliver of life. It hums, roars, uses all tones and modes, it rises like a sober good-by, recreates atmospheres and the need to remember. The need to fixate people and moments in someone’s memory. The need to keep something, but also to let it leave and run away. The need to express places and smell of cities, through music (Claudia Selmi).”

“Indie-Eye: If we wanted to mention potential references, they could be many, and they would go close to Tara Jane o'Neil during her Peregrine period, to Nina Simone’s soul, to Wim Mertens’s spiral-shaped drawings, and to a furor that emerges from the abandonment of sounds” (Michele Faggi).”

“ Sentireascoltare (cover on n.52) writes about them: Laura’s piano and voice return home bringing back in the mind and in the heart images from different times. A thrilling and difficult challenge for whoever wants to capture these moving images” (Stefano Solventi).”

“«Una voce sorprendente», « U n a P j Harvey italiana» o ancora «Una Diamanda Galas narcotizzata». Così la osannano siti e riviste di musica indie, italiani e stranieri, che da qualche settimana le dedicano interviste e recensioni. Il suo nome è Mimes of Wine, al secolo Laura Loriga, talentuosa cantautricee pianista bolognese, nelle cui malinconiche ed ipnotiche composizioni aleggia in realtà non solo lo spettro della rockeuse britannica ma anche quelli di Jeff Buckley e Sonic Youth.”
