Noibla - Hesitation (2018)
The debut album from this Polish band.
Noibla is a quintet with a lineup of guitars, bass, drums, saxophone, drums, keyboards and female vocals.
If you spell the Noibla backwards, you get Albion. That is another Polish band. Well, a now split up band. And three of the members of Albion formed Noibla. That include the guitarist and the female vocalist. So Noibla is the new Albion.
I really liked Albion so it makes me happy that their legacy now lives on in Noibla.
The album is out on the excellent Lynx Music record label. It is fifty minutes long...
And it really continue on from where the final Albion album finished. That means great female vocals over some really melodic neo-prog.
There is some laidback jazz in their neo-prog too and some really good melancholic stuff.
The music is a bit laidback with the emphasis on the vocals and some great moods. The music is good throughout too. This is an album I really like and would recommend to anyone into melodic prog.
