New digital release Saviour EP
The new EP begins with two new remixes from UXB; the melodic electronic moniker of Burning Shed's Pete Morgan, and finishes with two songs taken from Giancarlo Erra's recent live gig in his home city of Rome: "Evil Smile" from Nosound's 2016 album Scintilla and a new cover of "Pyramid Song" by Radiohead, who have been a big influence on the band's sound.
Nosound’s 2018 studio album Allow Yourself found the band in a new space once more having grown alongside their evolving and borderless label Kscope. The new material iss a stripping back of what has come before, and its inspirations are in a different field altogether, based on founder and songwriter Giancarlo Erra’s own shifting interests.
“Time has arrived for a radical change towards an alternative and electronic direction, being the music I have enjoyed the most in recent years.”
Scintilla (2016) began the process and Allow Yourself takes the band’s minimalist vision even further, incorporating elements from The National, Notwist, and Portishead, alongside an approach to mixing inspired by Bowie’s Blackstar and Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool.
Founder/writer Giancarlo Erra reflected on the direction of the new material, “The idea behind the album is encased in the title “Allow Yourself”, something directed to the listener but was first of all directed to myself. After attempting to find my own way and leave behind early influences and categorisations, I realised I was afraid of committing to the full change I was chasing. I needed to put myself out of my comfort zone, which meant lots of studying and completely changing my studio and instrumentation. A truly deep change happened and I discovered that with uncertainty and insecurity, with limitations and uneasiness, a more varied and exciting creative process sparked.”
