Giancarlo Machismo and Anastasia Lamborghini met on a train somewhere in the Swiss Alps, when they bumped into each other in the unisex bathroom. They share a love of fine coffees and wines, and a hatred of synthetic fabrics. Giancarlo is a half-prince, and Anastasia's mother was an entertainer in Amsterdam. They rehearse blindfolded. The music of the Casual Young Italians is inspired by trees, laughter, fast cars, and analog synthesizers.
