IT IT ANITA (Oliver Donnet) kopie.jpg

It It Anita - BE

With their '90s noise rock riffs and primal screams coming from every fiber of their being, IT IT ANITA (Belgium) might seem pretty simple. But if you take the time to really listen, you'll find some subtle nuances and intriguing depth. Besides seething fire there's also intense desire, crippling fear, anger and restlessness. Noisy guitars and loud rhythms are on the program of uncompromising stage performances where tension mixes with slackening, where raw energy fights against finesse. 

After a first eponymous record (Honest House - 2014) mixed by Jason Sebastian Russo (Mercury Rev), It It Anita successively recorded two opus with producer John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Cymbals Eat Guitars, Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr, Thurston Moore): "Recorded by John agnello" (2015) and "Agaaiin" (2016), both released on the independant belgian label Luik Records. The many positive criticisms aroused by the release of these records definitively placed the group as a major actor of the Belgian Noise / Rock scene. This success has attracted the eye of many media such as Studio Brussel, Humo, 22tracks, OOR, Focus Vif, or even Mowno.

Then, by a lot of touring in  Belgium, Europe and even Canada, the band finished to establish his huge stage reputation : Pukkelpop (be), 2 x Dour (be), 2 x Le Guess Who? (nl) - Eurosonic (nl),Le Printemps de Bourges (fr), The Great Escape (uk), Monkey Week (Spain), FME (Canada), etc.

By the end of 2017, after a first memorable gig in North American (FME Canada), IIAA is getting ready to take the road again: It It anita will support the Irish band "And so I watch you from afar "on a big part of their European dates. Following this fall tour, the band will take over the direction of the studio in order to complete the recording of its next album planned for spring 2018. Rumors say that they could very soon release a first single ... to be continued ...

New album will be out around spring 2018.

Agaaiin, het pas verschenen debuut van Aresta’s eigen band It It Anita, een noise esemblezoals luik ze graag heeft, met een slok ninetiesrock en een doe-het-zelfspirit Fugazi waardig. Opgenomen met Sonic Youth-producer John Agnello in New Jersey.
