Overture biography
Founded in Mores, Sardinia, Italy in 2010

Italian group OVERTURE emerged from the ashes of Sons of the Rascals in January 2010. The founders are Simone Desogus on drums, Samuele Desogus on guitar, Mattia Serra on keyboards and vocals, Salvatore Sassu on flute and guitar, and Stefano Sanna on bass. More recently, the band now includes Fiorella Piras on flute and vocals, Simone Meli on keyboards and Luigi Ventroni on vocals. They cite King Crimson, Van Der Graaf Generator, PFM and Genesis as particular influences.

Their self-titled debut was released in March 2018, and it contains five lengthy compositions that (in the words of the band themselves) `musically describe five fantastic worlds in which to transport the listener'! Performing in both English and Italian, a mix of lush electronics, grand guitar runs and classical piano prettiness joins with flute, violin and double bass to offer everything from elegant symphonic touches and jazzy interludes, all lifted even higher by charismatic theatrical vocals in the rich vintage Italian prog tradition.

With the keyboard-dominated colour of FEM PROG BAND and LA COSCIENZA DI ZENO, the swooning romance of LOCANDA DELLE FATE and the infectious youthful spirit of UNREAL CITY, Overture are a surprising new Italian band with an endlessly vibrant album!

Biography by Michael Hodgson (Aussie-Byrd-Brother), Italian Prog Team.

Overture Rock Progressivo Italiano

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars This Italian progressive band were initially formed out of the ashes of Sons of the Rascals in 2010, but it took some years for the current line-up to come together and finally record this their debut album, which was released earlier this year on Melodic Revolution Records. This certainly doesn't sound like a "new" band, but much more as if this was a lost album from the Seventies, such is the influence of that decade. The flute is an important melodic element, but far more tuneful and less forceful than the likes of Jethro Tull, more in common with the stylings of Martin Orford. As with most Italian bands, the keyboards are an incredibly important part of the overall sound, but here there is plenty of piano alongside the more bombastic elements, which again gives a more mature and controlled feel. It is that maturity that shines through on this album, and this never feels like a debut from a "new" group.

One of the highlight for me is the simple use of bass chords at times within songs, the switch from single notes to multiple has a high impact, but it is never over the top, just an additional element of class when the time is right. Songs such as "II Mendicante" are sheer delight, with piano then having vocals placed against them, then acoustic guitar, and when the full band comes in the flute takes it to a whole new level. This is progressive rock music to get lost inside, to be enjoyed with a huge smile on the face as there is just so much to discover and take in. One thing I'm not a fan of however, is the switch from Italian to English halfway through the album. If someone suggested to the band that it might be a way of gaining more fans outside their home country, then they got it wrong. I found it incredibly annoying when I first heard it, and it still jars now even though I have played it multiple times but that really is nit-picking on what is quite a glorious album. Let's just hope that they get back into the studio soon, and that there isn't too long until we get the follow-up.

Thanks to aussie-byrd-brother for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
