My Arrival - Satur9 & Indigo (2020)
The debut album from this Dutch band.
The band is a trio with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, bass, drums and vocals.
The beginning of the 2020s and a new decade sees a lot of debut albums. It seems like there is a new start, a new wave of progressive rock bands hitting our scene now. And that is great !
My Arrival has taken the Steve Hogarth era Marillion route. The music is indeed neo-prog in that vein.
The music is essentially art-rock, though.
The music is mid-tempo and a bit laidback. The guitars and the keyboards sound is nice and really adds to this album. Ditto for the vocals.
It is too early to say if this is going to be a great band for the scene as the music on this album is a bit on the safe side. Nobody will dislike or get offended by the music and many will like it.
The quality is somewhere between decent and good.
This is still an album well worth checking out.
