Bellini is an international indie rock/math rock band, composed of members from Girls Against Boys, Soulside and Uzeda. This band was named after the Italian composer, Vincenzo Bellini.[1]


The band was formed after Damon Che's previous band Don Caballero went on hiatus. To start a new outfit he called upon the Italian guitarist Agostino Tilotta. They were joined by Tilotta's wife Giovanna Cacciola (vocals) while Che brought in Matthew Taylor on bass.[2] The four-piece got together with Steve Albini who produced their debut album Snowing Sun, released in 2002.[3] During the subsequent North American tour drummer Che left and was replaced by Alexis Fleisig.[4] In 2005 the band released the album Snowing Stones,[5] followed by The Precious Prize of Gravity in 2009.[6] Both recorded with the assistance of Steve Albini. A new record is planned for sometime in 2015.[7]
