Nosound: "Wherever You Are"

By Michael J.W. Stickings

You may not know Italian post-prog band Nosound... but you should. Here's how they're described at their website:

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.

Pink Floyd? Porcupine Tree? That's the very core of my musical tastes. Throw in some Sigur Rós for hypnotic ambiance, and I'm hooked.

Led by Giancarlo Erra, Nosound is set to release their fourth studio album, Afterthoughts, on May 6 on the incomparably great Kscope label. (And to make it even better, the album features former Porcupine Tree dummer Chris Maitland.)

I encourage you to check them out, particularly this highly-anticipated album, their first in four years. In the meantime, here's the video for one of the album's tracks, "Wherever You Are." Enjoy!
