Formed in Italy circa 2001, Giancarlo Erra's Nosound create a seductive and original fusion of elements of progressive, ambient and post rock. Regarded by critics and fans alike as one of the most fascinating alt/art rock ensembles in Europe, 2009's A Sense Of Loss is their third album overall and follow up to the 2008's Lightdark. Erra describes the album as a "move from the classic 'rock' or (or the rock ambient) approach used in Lightdark to a more unique sound, with influences from more contemporary alt and post rock."
To create this sound the band used less synths (any that were used were almost all a strict selection of vintage synth sounds) and more real instruments including a string quartet, leading to an even more emotional recording than Lightdark. Erra adds, "The overall production and sound have moved to a more 'natural' overall sound, combined with some different sounds and approaches, a little far from Lightdark, but still distinctively Nosound (probably more now than before)."
Appearing on vinyl for the first time, this 180g audiophile edition features a new 2017 master, two extra tracks and a bonus CD containing instrumental versions of tracks from the album.
