Nosound Lightdark on White 180g 2LP + Download
Regarded by critics and fans alike as one of the most interesting up and coming alt/art rock bands in Europe, Nosound inventively combines influences from ‘70s psychedelia, ‘80s/’90s ambient and contemporary alternative, progressive and post rock. The project started as a one man studio project in late 2002 by Giancarlo Erra, but has since grown into a five-piece band, evolving into something unique, focused and powerful. The music is evocative and intense, with personal songwriting. Influences range from Pink Floyd to Brian Eno, from Porcupine Tree to Sigur Ros, passing through rock and electronic/ambient.
Nosound's breakthrough 2008 release - recorded in Italy, England and the US throughout 2006 and 2007 - Lightdark developed further the promise of debut album Sol29 and exhibited a stronger group identity, revealing a greater contrast between atmospheric detail and the walls of sound created by the band on stage. Highlights include the 15 minute epic "From Silence to Noise," the ethereal "The Misplay" (with cellist Marianne DeChastelaine), and the epic piano/mellotron driven ballad "Someone Starts To Fade Away" (featuring guest vocals from No-Man's Tim Bowness).
As part of the Kscope 5th anniversary celebrations, Nosound's breakthrough sophomore release has been remastered and is being reissued on heavyweight 180g double vinyl in a gatefold sleeve plus download card.
