Based in Rome, Italy, Pulcher Femina is a darkwave duo whose gloomy, moody music ranges from goth rock to industrial and EBM. Pulcher's music is heavily electronic; while a lot of goth rock is guitar-minded, Pulcher often favors the electro-goth style that has been popular all over Western Europe. The duo was formed in late 1997, when singer/keyboardist Roberto Conforti met singer/lyricist Anna Consuelo Cerichelli at a Roman goth/darkwave hangout called the Velvet Club. Although Conforti and Cerichelli (whose influences range from Depeche Mode and the Cocteau Twins to Dead Can Dance and Bauhaus) grew up speaking Italian as a primary language, they have no problem singing and writing in English. In 1999, Pulcher entered a Rome studio and recorded Fallen Angel, which was released on the Rome-based Decadance label the following year.
