At The Pier, the new EP from Nosound, features three new tracks and hints at the promise of the band's forthcoming 2013 album release.
Featuring Chris Maitland (ex-Porcupine Tree) on drums and Marianne De Chastelaine on cello, the material demonstrates a more direct and powerful approach for the band. Chris Maitland, who plays on all of the tracks on the new album, adds a dynamic dimension to Nosound's music and ushers in a new era for the Italian band.
Band leader Giancarlo Erra describes the tracks that make up At The Pier:
"In general I would say that The Anger Song is rougher and bleaker than anything Nosound has attempted before. 'Angry' indeed! A New Start is more typically Nosound, but like my work with Memories Of Machines, I'd say it's almost uplifting in a melancholic way. Majestic music with twisted lyrics. An interesting mix of blues and post-rock packed into one song. Two Monkeys is based around piano, upright bass and sampled strings and contains deeply personal lyrics. It also features Marianne De Chastelaine on cello."
A limited edition digipak format release, all orders - until stocks run out - will receive an exclusive Nosound guitar pick (1.0mm).
Please note that there are no more picks left.
