Stereonoon is a modular, Italian neo-soul/jazz and R&B inspired collective formed during pandemic-related lockdowns that features core creative duo — Verona-born vocalist Anna Polinari and cinemavolt’s creative mastermind Max Tozzi. The act’s debut single is a fairly straightforward yet neo-soul and vibey cover of Joe Jackson’s classic “Steppin’ Out,” centered around a sinuous bass line and Polinari’s sultry vocals.
The accompanying visual for Stereomoon’s cover of “Steppin’ Out” is comprised of stock footage of a family — mom, dad and a very bored and sullen son — driving into New York in the late 40s for a trip on the town. Of course, despite the fact that there were countless marvels all around him, the kid is miserable. But the one thing that seems to capture his attention is The Statue of Liberty. It’s old-fashioned and goofy.
The Italian act will be releasing an EP of original material sometime during the fall.
