Antonioni (Seattle) is an indie rock band fronted by Sarah Pasillas-who’s abstracted personal lyricism and evocative songwriting coalesce into a unique brand of eclectic modern guitar pop. Antonioni began in 2016 when Pasillas recruited Austin Dean, Kyle Todaro, and Evan Captain to flesh out and record songs she had written for a new project. The result was 2017's Lullablaze EP, a moody, lo-fi rock record - released on Den Tapes. The EP drew strong praise, including from The Grey Estates, who deemed Lullablaze as: “ [a] step into the heart of something astounding.” In 2018 Antonioni started writing and recording new songs with producer Rick Hoag and new bassist Sam Parkin at MRX studios in Seattle. Another EP, The Odds Were All Beating Me, was released in early 2019. The sonically polished and more expansive album drew strong praise from KEXP and others in the region. The EP and subsequent music videos began to generate a healthy buzz - in 2019 Antonioni opened for acts like Cherry Glazerr and Great Grandpa. After adding Ben Dorcy (dreamcatchr) on bass and touring the Northwest in 2019, the band began recording new material in Anacortes, WA. In 2020 Antonioni signed with Lauren Records and released the new tracks Mary Bell and Malcomer.
