Biography

If there were such a thing as Ride’s ‘Time Machine’, there’s a hefty chance that the Italian band Piatcions would have hopped into it and from wherever they landed (my guess is about 1992) they would have drawn their influence to write a record that oozes early nineties, Ride-style shoegaze with some more modern influences too. The homage to Ride in the sustained vocal harmonies is very apparent as an influence, but there’s a glaze of psychedelia too which makes for an interesting and diverse listen.

But Ride aren’t the only influence here. Alongside the Jesus and Mary Chain, there’s hints of Darker My Love, Wooden Shjips and Film School. Those afore mentioned harmonies and softly understated vocals sit so comfortably with the textural distortion and feedback, which build upon and add some flesh to the subtle bones of the (perhaps too understated) drums and bass, combining beautifully for a luscious, dense sound, artfully constructed and beautifully arranged. High five for Italian shoegazing.
