The frontman of the Italian rock band revealed to NME that the British pop star was the first act that he connected most strongly with.
“Wanna get surprised? It’s James Arthur,” David said in an NME Firsts video interview.
“I am surprised, I don’t know why,” responded his bandmate, drummer Ethan Torchio, who later clarified that he was “joking”. It appeared that Torchio already knew of David’s arguably unexpected answer.
The band also revealed what their first jobs were – ranging from door-to-door sales to cinema ushering – and reflected on the first song that they wrote together, an unreleased track called ‘Introduction’.

The four-piece, who were victorious in this May’s Eurovision with their track ‘Zitti e buoni’, have been playing a host of shows since COVID restrictions lifted this summer, including a set as part of the Paris leg of the huge Global Citizen Live event last month.
They also played in London last month – read NME‘s five-star review of the show here.
