24 Mar Inside Armonite’s Summer Album ‘And the Stars Above’
Armonite are back with a 12 track journey through sound that will be gracing your ears this summer, here is what we know so far!
Armonite, the band by composer Paolo Fosso and violinist Jacopo Bigi are releasing their new album, And the Stars Above, this summer. The album is an instrumental mix of electric violin, keyboards, bass, and drums with focus on the amazing and powerful electric violin, performed by Bigi.
The album is inspired by the multiple facets of the soul as an experience of self-knowledge. The ‘stars’ in the title stand for a higher level of consciousness. It encourages us to stop, abandon these banal trails we run on and elevate our minds.
The sound of the album is more oriented to soundtrack music with textures that feel very immediate. Fosso, who recently composed the music for a couple of web series, wants to take Armonite to the next level. “We consume tons of music every day, we can’t just stick to one genre”, he says, “generally speaking, the album is rock, but with this idea of soundtrack music.”
Throughout the album, lingers a ghostly female voice, appearing and disappearing here and there before fully emerging in the band’s first song with lyrics, “Clouds Collide“. The track tells the story of a girl between time and memories.
“We’re confident this is going to be a great release, with a rather peculiar view” says Fosso,
