Catchy sound and rhythmic music for the Turin guys Aldo!
The new album name is “Dentro un’orbita”. The first listen is exactly like being sucked inside a vortex of originality, especially in terms of sound and musical arrangement.
Turin band, active since 2013, consists of drums, guitar, voice and synth; it is precisely in this last one which resides the creative ascendancy of the quartet. It mixes in a captivating way the classic harsh sounds from punk with a “light” electronic sound which tends to lighten up.
The cover of the album, with its random stacked objects, almost seems describing what it actually contains, a cauldron of different sounds and influences, in some you hear more one than others, but overall pleasant and well done.
In addition to a reference to post punk sounds due presence of keyboards (don’t hate me artists), on a closer listening, you can’t ignore some guitar laps with heavily funky, rock’n’roll and reggae influences. This, together with the female voice, pounding drums and a bass that from time to time is pleasantly played, creates a unique and catchy atmosphere.
Clear example of this well done mix is 40%vol or track 6, exciting and snappy/sprinting, music that in conclusion makes it hard to stand still on a chair.
Overall, an album that undoubtedly deserves listening, even from those less passionate of this genre and a band definitely to keep an eye (or an ear) on, as it can have interesting developments.
