Antonella Pacifico is a self-taught musician and producer who is currently based in Copenhagen but her roots can be traced back to southern Italy and Tuscany. From a family of music lovers, she grew up listening to Tears for fears, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Airplane, Emerson Lake & Palmer and more. With her formative years spent in Rome, Antonella played in a grunge and post-rock outfit before relocating to Denmark to focus on solo music production. The sound that Pacifico has carved out with Rome in Reverse is blissed-out dance music featuring dreamy soundscapes driven by gripping electronic beats and occasionally accompanied by her own emotive vocals. Her uplifting blend of organic and electronic sounds is reminiscent of Four Tet and her penchant for ethereal dance music finds company in The Field. Rome in Reverse cites a wide range of influences, including Tycho, Moby, John Hopkins, The Chemical Brothers, Massive Attack and Flume.
Easing into the single with static soundscapes, Rome in Reverse and Sun Glitters have found a way to best display each of their own stylings while bringing them together in a cohesive and emotive way. Light female vocals take centre stage, dancing with luminary basslines and more organic elements of clicks and claps. There is a steady rise to the track, filling the listener with hope as the pace increases, ultimately creating a simple yet joyful masterpiece.
Reflecting on the single, Rome in Reverse says: “It’s natural for me to immerse myself in a landscape while I produce music. ‘Coralline’ is the perfect way to explain how I feel at that moment, and what I see in my conscience. Who better than Sun Glitters, with his ambient sounds accompanied with downtempo beats, to take me to that mental place. A dive in a deep blue ocean, breathless while hearing the call of the mermaids (the choir in the track) and surrounded by beautiful coral.”
