Originally started as Renato’s acoustic project, I Like Allie has since evolved into a full-fledged punk rock band with the arrival of Gio (drums), Fra (bass) and Luca (lead guitar). Since then, the band released an EP as well as a self-titled collection of all their released output via Real Ghost Records and played everywhere from Hamburg’s Booze Cruise Festival to Bergamo’s Punk Rock Raduno along with a US East Coast tour down to The Fest.

For ‘Rare Instances of Independent Thinking,’ the band entered Mobsound Recording Studios in Milan at the end of 2019 with long-time engineer and friend Alessandro Caneva (Fine Before You Came, Fratelli Calafuria) but recording proceeded over the course of 2020 with a few interruptions due to the Covid-19 Global Pandemic. The record was completed with mixing by Jeff Dean (Samiam, Braid) and mastering by Dan Coutant (The World Is a Beautiful Place, War on Women) and features guest vocals of singer-songwriter Laura Stevenson.

The band’s sound is melodic punk rock, some might also say emo, but with a very personal style deriving from the band’s different musical tastes and the stories found in Renato’s lyrics that on this new release address issues such as peer pressure, social anxiety, and learning to let go of useless negativity. Musically, the record explores new avenues by trying to be more original and innovative while staying true to their original sound.
