Sintonia Distorta - A Piedi Nudi Sull' Arcobaleno (2020)

The second album from this Italian band.

The band was a sextet with a lineup of drums, bass, guitars, flute, saxophone, keyboards and vocals.

I was not particular impressed by their 2015 debut album Frammenti D'Incanto. Too much power pop and not good enough songs.

There are still some power pop here. But not much. It has been largely been replaced by RPI. Some of the RPI - Rock Progressive Italiano - also has this lush 1970s sound. 

Some of the RPI is more contemporary, though. That is a good thing as this is a modern band.

The Italian vocals are very good and the band has a winner here.

The flutes also gives the pastoral music some extra smell of flowers. Banco is therefore a very good reference here.

There is some more hard rocking pieces here. Most of this album is pretty pastoral though.

The band has pulled it of and the result is a very good album. 

This album is well worth checking out.

3.5 points
