LOCATION: Milano, ItalyINFLUENCES: Erykah Badu, Flying Lotus, Thundercat, KimbraBIO:

TECHNOIR is an Electro Soul/Psychedelic band based in Milan with Italian, Ghanaian and Greek origins.

The duo, comprised of Alexandros Finizio and Jennifer Villa, who drive every aspect of the project, from songwriting to production and visual concepts, has drawn the interest of national and international magazines like Afropunk and Rolling Stone ("Their music is not mere emotional R&B but a deep glitch of recent acid jazz, that rightly fits in the post-black wave guided by Flying Lotus") and has brought their sound all over Europe.

The duo mixes Soul, Electronica, Jazz and touches of Post-Punk in a very personal blend, in 2019 they collaborated with Stuart Zender (Jamiroquai) and Cristiano Crisci (Clap!Clap!) recording the track “More Than You Can See” (AlieNation, 2019).

TECHNOIR veer to the darker corners of soulful electronica with their new album "Never Trust the Algorithm", their second LP that melds beauty and anguish underscored by their love for hip hop, Radiohead and Alan Moore comics.

"Never Trust the Algorithm" is out October 30th via Kengah Records.
