If you like post-rock, you will love this Swiss band KOVLO.
From their website, “KOVLO was born in Canton Ticino, Switzerland. Stefano Chiassai, Giona Mattei, Alessandro Del Fiore and Alessio Galupi come from very different experiences, but the desire to come together to create something special is very strong. The music of KOVLO could be defined as post-rock, with influences from noise-rock and even jazz.
Through experimentation and putting together different personalities, after some months the project KOVLO takes a shape and creates its own way.
KOVLO, with the release of their first two records, “A new position for the second degree burnt”(2005) and “I’m so happy on this boat” (2007/2008) became one of the most interesting and acclaimed european post-rock and instrumental rock bands. The sound of the band moves between quite, intimate and mysterious soundscapes, and hypnotic, furious and violent noise explosions, in the tradition of bands like Mogwai, GSYBE!, Shellac, Isis, Explosion in the sky, Sigur Ros.
KOVLO’s second record, “I’m so happy on this boat”, was artistically produced by Rob Ellis (producer and musician of PJ Harvey and Marianne Faihfull, collaborator of Placebo, Laika, Swell, and others), and has been critically acclaimed worldwide.
KOVLO toured all over Europe (Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark). As it happens with most post-rock bands, the live experience is essential to discover and enjoy the music of KOVLO. During their live shows, KOVLO are able to express at the best the tension and power of their sound, with its psychedelic and hypnotic soundscapes.
New album “Hey Mom, where’s Timbuktu?” to be released March 14th 2011.”
