After Plasma, L'Etere and  Angoscia, a trilogy published on 7 inches over the past two years, a new album sees the light: an 8-track LP that represents a journey into the artist's sound imaginary, and which deviates from the western and horror suggestions of his previous works, embracing a more synthetic but at the same time epic dimension.

 

  This time the main characters is the string quartet and Villa’s own pulsating bass, the only string electrical instrument on the record.

 

  The strings and the rhythm section have a central role and represent the “earthly” part of the compositions;  vintage synthesizers and keyboards weave the murky sonic fabric around them.

 

  The rigorously instrumental pace, with strong cinematographic suggestions, takes the listener into a parallel dimension poised between the aseptic and the dreamy.

Special mention for the wonderful artwork, created by the Hawaiian artist based in New York Georgie Smith aka Color Me Lurid, that perfectly captured the emotions arising from listening to the songs turning them into images: an explosive, colorful, mysterious and disturbing dimension at the same time.
