Nosound – Lightdark
Nosound was started as a one man studio-project in late 2002 by Giancarlo Erra. But has since become a band in studio and live performances.
Influences go from Pink Floyd to Brian Eno, from Porcupine Tree to Sigur Ros, passing through Rock, Electronic/Ambient and PostRock.
Official debut (SOL29) was released in 2005 and in 2006 followed by a live DVD (the world is outside) containing also unreleashed material.
A new live was issued in the first half of 2007 (slow it goes). Anticipating the new album they releashed an exclusive EP (clouds), containing three outtakes from the new album recording sessions.
Three years on from debut album SOL29, Nosound returns with their highly anticipated second album “LIGHTDARK”
Recorded in Italy,England and the US throughout 2006 and 2007, the album develops further the promise of their debut album SOL29. Lightdark sees the NOSOUND identity evolve into something even more focused and powerful. Combining influences from 70’s Psychedelica and 80’s/90’s Ambient and Alternative Progressive Rock.
Highlights include the 15 minute epic “From Silence to Noise, the ethereal “The Misplay”( with cellist Marianne DeChastelaine ), and the epic piana/mellotron driven ballad “Someone starts to fade Away” (wich features NO-MAN’s Tim Bowness on Vocals.
My favorite tracks are
1. From Silence to Noise
2. The Misplay
3. Someone Starts to Fade Away
In one word this is a Magical Release.
