THE BAND'S FIFTH ALBUM THAT MARKED THE BEGINNING OF A NEW CHAPTER - NOW ON MID-PRICE CD WITH THREE BONUS TRACKS
FEATURING GUEST APPEARANCES FROM ANATHEMA'S VINCENT CAVANAGH AND ACCLAIMED ITALIAN SINGER ANDREA CHIMENTI
"Welcome to the era of Erra" Prog Magazine (UK)
Ahead of the band's latest album, 'Allow Yourself', which realises songwriter and founder Giancarlo Erra's new vision for the band, Nosound reissue their previous critically acclaimed 'Scintilla' on mid-price CD. After a decade of crafting a very particular type of widescreen melancholia and wistful imagery, Nosound's fifth studio album 'Scintilla' introduced 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 utilises 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'. A cathartic album of emotional extremes, 'Scintilla' marks the brave beginning of the second phase of Nosound's fascinating career.
This mid-price CD edition of 'Scintilla' features three new bonus tracks, which connect the dots between this album and the band's new album 'Allow Yourself' due for release 21st September 2018. Scintilla is presented in digipack packaging complete with a 12-page booklet.
