The sound of a mariachi orchestra that’s playing far away seems to introduce the main theme of the album: it’s a sort of noble exoticism and the Gentlemen's Agreement seem to have moved to some suburbs in the Western Hemisphere to conceive their second album, "Carcarà".
The landmarks it’s a book, actually a journey of the soul, even if comfortably seated on the veranda. "Tropical Truth" written by Caetano Veloso, is not a simple biography, but a sharp image of an artistic movement known as the most as Tropicalism.
Stories of opposition transferred in music, before the army swept away the dreams of those talented artists.
Gentlemen's Agreement just fell in love with that sound, contaminate by many other kind of music genres.
Crossing and in between the border of United States and Mexico, a postcard from Cuba and in general an attitude that it’s next to the Philosophy of the brazilian singers of those times.
In this game of citations, the band has enriched the original line up with new musicians. There are now five guys: Raffaele Giglio (Vocals, Ukulele, Guitar Acoustics, Cuban Tres, Mandolin), Fabio Renzullo (trumpet, toy piano, harmonica, vocals), that has wrote the most of the horn sections of this record; Antonio Gomez Caddeo (Bass, Vocals), Andrea De Fazio (drums, backing vocals) and Gibbone (Surdo, Caixa, Quiche, Agogo, Clave, Triangle, Pandeiro, Repinique, Tamburim, Chocalho, Vocals).
The artwork and the first video of the album have been made by the talented artist Alessandro Rak, who helped with his original drawings to build an imaginary world proper to this delicate story.
Born in the summer of 2006 in Naples, their hometown, the Gentlemen's Agreement had, from scratch, a solar and carefree approach to music.
After a couple of self made Ep’s, they intensified their live appearances and openings acts for international bands such as Digitalism, I'm from Barcelona, The Horrors, Who Made Who.
"Let me be a child" (2008, Materia Principale) is the debut album. It 's an opportunity to melt their attitude for acoustic sounds with brasses and horns, courtesy of Little Farm Orchestra. In February 2009 the band toured in France and Spain, the particular gypsy sound of their music wins new fans across the Alps.
During the March of 2011, after more than 200 shows, the Gentlemen’s Agreement released their brand new album, Carcarà, and during last summer they took part to Sziget Festival 2011 in Budapest, among the many festivals they were involved into.
