BACKWARDS

is the brand-new label born by an innate passion for unusual music and by an unrestrained desire to produce representative works from the most disparate, and apparently distant, music genres: from insane industrial to introspective drone-ambient, from feverish post-punk to devastating psychedelia, not excluding the warm intimacy of songwriting and a certain kind of contemporary experimental folk music.
