Maneskin has released three albums since the start of their musical career in 2016. A successful participation in the television program 'X Factor' in 2017 and the subsequent release of the album Il ballo della vita, marked a definitive breakthrough among the Italian public.
The victory of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 put Maneskin globally on the map as the most popular rock band of the moment – a dream come true for the Italian rockers who started out as buskers in Rome. The band's distinctive name comes from the Danish word for "moonshine" - a nod to bassist Victoria De Angelis' Danish heritage. The band is praised for their reboot of authentic rock and roll with raw lyrics and striking expressions, on social media and during sold-out live shows. The band aptly describes itself as a 'modern translation of traditional rock music' and can therefore not be placed in one box.
