Video interview – FOLLYA: an album in which we recognize ourselves


“Follya” is the title of Follya’s debut album. Thirteen tracks written, composed and produced by the band and ROOM9.

A record inspired in its sound by powerpop, synthwave and alternative rock influences, and in its settings by the cinema of the 80s and 90s, a point of reference in the writing of Alessio Bernabei (vocals), Francesco Pierozzi (guitar), Alessandro Presti (bass) and Riccardo Ruiu (drums), aka Follya.

“FOLLYA” is our first album.

It’s a starting point. We decided to start from scratch to rewrite our history” – this is how Alessio Bernabei, frontman of FOLLYA, presents the band’s first albumwhich has experienced a real rebirth in the last year, in the sign of a renewed artistic identity and a profound search for new sounds.

This work makes us proud because it shows us what we have become and opens our eyes with amazement and curiosity about our future and everything to come.”



FOLLYA will be in concert with two lives, on November 8th at the LARGO Venue in Rome and on November 9th at the Apollo in Milan, during which they will perform the new album live for the first time.

The concerts, produced and organized by OTR Live, will bring the band composed of Alessio Bernabei (vocals), Francesco Pierozzi (guitar), Alessandro Presti (bass) and Riccardo Ruiu (drums) into the dimension that most belongs to them, that of the live club.
