Prior to releasing a string of influential and widely acclaimed solo records under his own name on labels such as Important and Hospital Productions, Allessandron Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) self-released two albums under the name Sonoio in 2010 and 2011 in limited runs. Praised for their complex and rich pop sound, strong vocal delivery and thoughtful compositions with impeccable production values, Sonoio's Red and Blue (and the accompanying remix albums Non Red and Non Blue) made heavy use of Cortini's expert manipulation of the Buchla synthesizer, releasing the single "Enough," and remixing Ladytron's "Houdini" before setting off on tour in direct support.
As activity with NIN, the demands of touring, and his other solo endeavors began to pick up, production on the third and final Sonoio installment was delayed. In 2014 however, after years of silence, Sonoio posted the single and video for the song "Thanks For Calling" exclusively on sonoio.org and quickly reignited rumors and hope for the release of the third album. Four years have passed since then, and finally the exclusive release of Sonoio's third and final effort, Fine has arrived. Fine is the first Sonoio full length to be released on vinyl, with gorgeous photography by Matt Sundin and packaging designed by Caspar Newbolt of Version Industries.
Personal, layered and complex, Fine achieves greatness as both a singular example of deep and inspiring pop music, and as the final album – the closing chapter in the story of Sonoio.
