Staying Animate Keeps You Unbound

The Italian band which was formed during the covid era revolve from the name Inmates because they were indoors to Animate to give people the idea that they wanted to give light and a soul to the project. Animate means soul in Italian.

Unbound is a song about life, experience, and a new beginning. It delves into the concept of life, and how beautiful life is. Although Animate is specialised in alternative rock, heavy alternative rock with guitar solos and lots of guitar effects, but Unbound is an acoustic song simply because it was born like that.

In a recent interview between Animate and Mister Styx of musicarenagh, the duo shed more light on their interest and musical growth. Get the full story below

What is your stage name

My stage name is Animate


Is there a story behind your stage name?
We started the project during the lockdown due to covid 19. So the first name we came up was “inmates” because we were closed in our homes. Then it became Animate to give people the idea that we wanted to give light and a soul to the project. Animate means soul in Italian and we’re an Italian band.

Where do you find inspiration?
I find inspiration in my life and in my experience and certainly in other people’s music.

What was the role of music in the early years of your life?
I’ve played guitar since I was 12 or 13 but before that I had no interest in music.

Are you from a musical or artistic family?
I’m not from a musical or an artistic family.

Who inspired you to be a part of the music industry?
When you have a lot of materials, demo songs, you want to see some of them released and that inspires me. My own songs.

What was the first concert that you ever went to and who did you see perform?
The first big concert I went was U2 in Rome in 2005

How could you describe your music?

Animate is doing alternative rock, heavy alternative rock with guitar solos and a lots of guitar effects. But Unbound is an acoustic song simply because it was born like that.

Describe your creative process.
I write music first and then I follow the music flow and I write the lyrics. Experimenting is key for me. But Unbound is a different story because I wrote the lyrics first and then the acoustic guitar part. Then I invited a longtime friend of mine to play the little electric solo you hear in the song. Sharing is important too.

What is your main inspiration?
For Unbound my main inspiration was my life. I wrote of what was happening to me back then. So my life is the main inspiration.

Did your style evolve since the beginning of your career?
My style evolved a lot because before Animate I wrote pop/rock songs. Unbound in a way is a sort of homecoming.

Who do you see as your main competitor?
I don’t see anyone as my competitor I think there’s an audience for everyone.

What are your interests outside of music?
I love cinema, reading books. I love the sea too. I love free diving.

If it wasn’t a music career, what would you be doing?
I have two jobs now, one in the music industry and one not in the music industry.

What is the biggest problem you have encountered in the journey of music?
The biggest problem is not lying to myself because in doing music you have to be honest with yourself.

If you could change one thing in the music industry, what would it be?
I don’t know what I could change. Infact I don’t care.



What are your plans for the coming months?
The release of another acoustic song and then another Animate song but alternative rock, heavy very heavy.

Do you have any artistic collaboration plans
I don’t have any artistic collaboration plans.

What message would you like to give to your fans?
I want to thank all of them and say that I hope we will perform soon.
