Italian solo recording project chickpee shares “two trees,” a tender waltz celebrating the love of her parents. Stranded in the US alongside her husband Ron Gallo due to the pandemic, “two trees” is a caring tribute draped in nostalgia and warmth. Northern Transmissions premiered the track along with announcing the artist’s debut album, IMPORTED, out later this year.
The woman behind chickpee, Chiara D’Anzieri, details the creation of “two trees”: With this song, I wanted to celebrate my parents love and the incredible example they’ve been for me since I’ve been unable to see them in over a year.
Now that I am stuck in the U.S and I cannot go to see them in my home country, Italy, I need to put them in my art and not only keep them in my heart.
I wrote this song in a couple of hours, the melody just popped up in my mind right after I finished a vocal track for another song that it’s gonna be in the record. Ron (Gallo), my husband, felt asleep on the floor in our home studio and when he woke up the song was there, ready to go. Couple of days after Dom Billet recorded drums on it and Eric Slick marimba and the magic was complete.
