Two years after the critically acclaimed "La Stanza di Swedenborg: Vanessa Van Basten returns with two brand new epic tracks collected on this beautiful EP, which was written by all band members.
This Italian heavy post-rock ensemble don't constrict themselves to the laws of The Great Postrock Bible. In stead they blend in psychedelica, ambient influences, metal and shoegaze to result in a unique musical experience.
Dreamlike and cinematographic sounds collide with heavy and dark sonic assaults: the music is incredibly crafted and reveals more of its intrinsic beauty every time it is played.
Vanessa Van Basten has kept their lo-fi attitude as the tracks were recorded in the rehearsal room and at home with the aid of a technician and feature a human drummer (no more drum computer this time) that has toured with the band in the past.
The EP comes in an oversized folded cover with a sixteen page booklet inserted and is strictly limited to 500 copies.
