"M+A is Michele Ducci,19, (vocals, instruments) and Alessandro Degli Angioli , 22, (instruments) from Forli, Italy. They create inventive, spirited electro-acoustic pop infused with dance / dubstep elements, evoking comparisons to The Postal Service, Panda Bear, Phoenix and Tunng."

'We listen to music to understand what we do, and we do music to understand what we listen to. We record everything at home, in a mansard to be more precise. The "home-made" policy corresponds to a definite aesthetics, particularly with regard to a pop range. It's like a scene from a thriller movie where, at the very crucial moment, there's a shot of the director and his assistants while setting up the play set. So yes, we do make pop, but with the unpretentious intention to thrill. Our band is made up by two components, not merged in a unique identity, but rather coexisting. Sticking to the common sense of the word, we never really felt like a group. With its naivety and brutality, M+A plainly represents our initials just to make the whole thing more tangible and real. It's two people moving forward parallel one another, though with countless meeting points. There is no real language, it's unnecessary for what we're trying to do. We don't want to say anything nor teach it. We only want to leave something where anyone can feel or imagine what he wants. And use it as deemed most convenient. This way "the song event" becomes completely collective. Who listens is not only important, but essential. We provide forms, and who listens creates contents. The song doesn't end with us, and becomes itself a base of departure and not of arrival. We said there are no points of arrival. As for now, that's how it is. We're like gold diggers who love the bed of the river before the gold itself. And we enjoy this "young" possibility. In short, we aim to live rather than last, to deplete the field of possibility.'
