My Shell is the solo acoustic project of Matteo, previously also in Nasten'ka and BuioOmega, amongst the others. My Shell composes melancholic, slow, reflective ballads, in which acoustic guitar, grandpiano and a feeble dash of the voice are melt together in a subtle harmonic blend. Following a string of contributions to our compilation collection, we have recovered take from a demo tape and which is entitled "The Baikal EP". The record is somewhat literally no-fi, as the audio quality is dreadful, despite careful mastering by MdK. Nevertheless, it is a brilliant piece of intimistic song-writing, that makes of My Shell probably the most secretive and undisclosed pearl amongst Italian singer-songwriter.
