“A song about the division, isolation and negativity created by the frenetic usage of social media. An inspiration to look at the real world and to explore friendship that might be right there, next to you”. // Donna Cannone
After opening the book on Donna Cannone with the gloriously hook-filled slice of melodic rock n roll, that was debut single ‘Cross the Line’, the Swedish/Italian quartet, featuring two former Thundermothers as well as the Soilwork/The Nightflight Orchestra main man Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid are back with the equally wonderful ‘Nothing to Do’. Focussing on the influence of social media on everything in the world, ‘Nothing to Do’ urges the listener to take a look at the real world, the answers you seek might right there waiting!
‘It all started as a game, something fun to do. As it should be.’
And with that, Donna Cannone was born. Former Thundermother member Giorgia Cateri (guitars) and her fellow Italian ex-pat found themselves heading to a rehearsal room a short while ago to play some music and, in their own words, ‘have some fun.’ Giorgia’s former Thundermother bandmate Tilda Stenqvist was brought in on drums as the trio began putting together a number of new songs. A knock at the door brought a surprise as, guitar in hand, Bjorn ‘Speed’ Strid (Soilwork, The Nightflight Orchestra) had heard what the band were up to and wanted in. Soon the quartet were recording demos, and one of these demos fell into the hands of Swedish label Despotz Records and a deal was soon done.
It is with great excitement we announce our signing with Despotz Records. We believe we can achieve some amazing things together and this unit is currently brewing something very interesting. -Something real, wicked, and fiery, that will both cross bridges and cross lines’
The first fruits of this collaboration is the band’s debut single – the infectious ‘Cross the Line’, taken from their upcoming album scheduled for early 2021.
