Introducing Stop The Wheel, the brand new project from Francesco Candura, who used to be a member of the Italian psychedelic avant-pop explorers and SubPop recording artists Jennifer Gentle, with their brand new single “Shape Up”, which has been given a fresh update from K-Pop sound director and genius Zi Seung Nam.
Stop The Wheel describe their music as “campfire R&B or weirdo folk […] R&B music played at a campfire. Sung by humans and aliens, in harmony“, and they create their “perfectly catchy post pop songs that sing on forever and ever and ever” using a 4-track tape, acoustic guitar and pitched vocals.
The song “Shape Up” is taken from their new album titled Basta, which is out now on all platforms via Little Gem Records. The word “basta” means enough in Italian, and according to the band, “Millions of people say ‘Basta’ everyday, for many different reasons and on different times. But we all have that in common: we all say ‘Basta’ out loud sooner or later“.
