Catania’ based Psychocean release their first EP “Embryonal Confinement” in October 2007, a concept-album dealing with the labour of the contemporary man, condemned to lead his life in a “free and democratic” prison by social patterns and suffocating routines. Explicit reference to the works of Orwell, Palahniuk and Chomsky are not to be denied. Opening track “Overtones” has been enclosed on the “NeuroSounds Vol.1: Stones From The Sky” compilation CD. Quite a lot of successful gigs within the national boundaries followed, as well as an opening-act slot for renowned band Zu, and several good achievements in various competitions (Unirock 09’s first place winners, FRU 08 and IndieConcept 2010’s second place winners) alongside with enthusiastic favour of most of the critics from musical press and roundabouts (Top Demo on RockHard, June 2008, among others) complete this period CV.

The band starts writing new songs, spreading session over a period of one year and a half: the result of this serious commitment of time and reasoning is “Luminescence”, their first full-length album. Lyrics are inspired by modern life alienation, social networks-introduced communication, the everlasting conflict with Nature and man himself’ spiritual evolution, as deeply portrayed by Marcuse, Nietzsche, Majakovskij, Mandelbrot, Borges and Saramago’s way of thinking. Carmelo Orlando, Novembre’s vocalist, guests on the song “Luminescent Twin”, and both front + back CD covers are Tobia Rava’s own artworks. Psychocean “Luminescence” is exclusively published as free online download, coupled with a physical CD including all artwork and lyrics and also an empty cd-r, in the name of a marked separation between the sheer essence (music) and the mere container (compact disc)
