Description

After a decade of crafting a very particular type of widescreen melancholia and wistful imagery, Nosound's fifth studio album Scintilla introduces a wholly new musical and visual approach for Giancarlo Erra's ever-evolving band. Inspired by personal upheaval and a desire for change, Scintilla is an emotionally complex and musically direct work presenting a stripped-down set of compositions that mark a major departure from Nosound's trademark symphonic lushness and production precision.

Taking in influences from post rock, shoegaze and alt singer-songwriters, the album imaginatively utilizes a mostly organic and acoustic sound palette. Musically looser and more sonically intimate than the band's previous releases, Scintilla's emphasis is placed firmly on feeling rather than technique. Anathema's Vincent Cavanagh lends his distinctive vocals to two of the album's tracks, and cellist Marianne De Chastelaine returns once more to the Nosound fold (this time in a more free-flowing and improvisational capacity). Acclaimed Italian singer Andrea Chimenti co-writes and sings on the serene "Sogno E Incendio."

Shifting from the uncharacteristic sarcasm of "Love Is Forever" and potent anger of "The Perfect Wife" to the dreamy sensitivity of "Emily" and the unusually uplifting "In Celebration Of Life," Scintilla represents the boldest statement of Nosound's career so far. A cathartic album of emotional extremes, Scintilla marks the brave beginning of the second phase of Nosound's fascinating tenure.

Scintilla is available on Kscope as an audiophile double 180g vinyl edition (mastered at 45rpm to ensure quality) in a gatefold cover with booklet and poly-lined inner bags. Also includes a download card featuring the vinyl master at 320kbps.
