Italian trio Soviet Soviet take a broad view of the post-punk genre, ignoring time stamps and geographic restrictions to assemble a specimen uniquely theirs. The band released their debut album, Fate, on Felte in 2013. For three years, the band has toured incessantly. In the summer of 2016, Felte reissued their 2011 nine track compilation Nice and the Summer, Jesus EP.
Endless, Soviet Soviet's proper sophomore album, is the result of a very long and, in some ways, contorted creative process. The band explains, "It started to take shape during soundchecks while on tour, as well as last year when we took a break from touring. It is certainly a continuum of Fate, which we could consider a starting point since every journey calls for us to identify a point from which to start or start over again. That is exactly what we are looking at."
Endless is an intense story, one that is marked by purity and which talks of the past. It is an introspective, personal learning experience. A moment of reflection as well as a metamorphosis and a new beginning in life. It's a tunnel. An experience through which to improve yourself and your surroundings. In many aspects, it's more complex than their previous work in terms of how the songs are arranged."
"We've tried experimenting with new sounds all the while remaining closely tied to our musical vision. It is a complete album that should be listened to in its entirety," they add. "There are songs that inspire reflection as well as tracks that are more potent, marked by distortion yet with a focus on lyrics, which continue to represent a fundamental element in the trio's approach to composition."
Endless is the result of a long, well thought out process marked by experimentation and innovation yet still tied to their instinctive style of interpreting and performing music.
