The project began shortly before the Covid-19 pandemic exploded. Following the restrictions caused by the imposed isolation, Basement's Glare have recorded and released their first single, Red Zone, which deals directly with the issue of social distancing and its consequences. Subsequently, the band decided to complete the recordings of the eponymous EP as previously scheduled, working mostly remotely. Basement's Glare are composed by Riccardo Adamo (vocals) and Daniele Marinelli (guitars) as stable members, and by various session musicians, such as Niccolò Franchi, who took care of the drums, and Viscardo Volpi, who lent his bass for the track Take a bow. The lyrics of the songs are written by Riccardo, while the arrangements and orchestrations are written in four hands with Daniele, who then took care of the realization.
