Ornaments is an instrumental quartet from Italy, the band is made by friends from different bands, they have been playing with this project since 2003. Here goes their bio “Ornaments is the perfect representation of the common passion for music of a group of friends. Years of attending shows, listening to lps, entire days closed up in a rehearsal room, many kilometers on the road with a bunch of cds piled up on the dashboard. Finally these people felt something had to be given back, they had to put together the mysterious energy of all the musical influences and create something new and completely free from the typical rock stereotype. At the same time forming a band was the natural progression in keeping a close friendship going and expressing a unique mutual feeling. Since early winter in 2003 until this day, ORNAMENTS represents a chance to build a solid construction of ideas and free form experimentation that can satisfy alla members of the band. ORNAMENTS wants to consider itself as an open project that can freely interact with different artistic figures such as Multimedial and Visual Artists and Soundtrack creators. The first self-titled EP (2004) is made up of 4 instrumental tracks. Long silent atmospheric moments are ruptured by huge brutal explosions of sound. Dark atmospheres create even more obscure visions. The song structures mix the sharp edges and tight mechanical feeling of a heavy brutal sound with a more harmonic post-rock dreaminess. Tension just keeps building up during the whole listening experience of these 4 tracks. A purifying moment just seems around the corner but it just never actually comes, the music keeps on growing in an infinite spiral “.
Reading the text above make it more clear for the new listener, no more words are needed to start the interest of listen this. I’ve been listening this promo like 4 times and while this is playing i’ve not move from my chair, once again music proves me you don’t need any kind of drug to enter in trance, music can do you just need to put attention and let music drives you to imaginary places… give this a listen, i highly recommend this.
