Eno (it means "uncle" in finnish) is a 2-piece post-rock band from Switzerland.
Inspired by bands like MONO, GREGOR SAMSA and MOGWAI, these two Swiss guys decided to start a journey into wider soundscapes. As the duo uses loopstations and samples and guitars, the emotional and cleverly structured songs, all of them instrumental, sound like a whole orchestra. The album is calm and relaxed, yet it creates a certain nervous tension and it doesn't cling to commonly known rock clichees or structures. Don't expect a sound, that the label Synalgie (connected to the hardcore label Ape Must Not Kill Ape) normally delivers. This definitely isn't screamo, this is an astonishing soundtrack to a movie that goes from the light to the dark side of the mind. (review by greed records)

Though "Eno" means uncle in Finnish it's a specific term for an uncle from your mothers side. An uncle from your fathers side is not an "Eno" - he's called "Setä". It's not a thing that should go unnoticed. I just wanted to make sure that those two are distinguished.
