Is it impossible playing a British-style pop music in Italy? Here is the challenge that Amelie want to take up.
At the beginning of 2006, the Trabant EP is the Amelie’s 1st auto-produced work. It gets good reviews from specialised websites and magazines. Meanwhile, the band plays several gigs and festivals, and opens some summer tour concerts of Baustelle.
