Arctic Plateau biography
Arctic Plateau is post rock project (and one-man band) of composer and musician Gianluco Divirgilia.. Based in Rome, Italy, the musician composed and wrote all songs for his debut album by himself. He played keyboards and guitar as well as sung , with just help of the guest rhythm section (Fabio Fraschini - bass, Cesare Petuliccio - drums) on the debut album, released at the end of 2009.

Band's music is surprisingly quite traditional post-rock in a vein of Nordic and British bands. Atmospheric, a bit melancholic, often acoustic, it has nothing too much in common with Italian post-rock bands (their music is often strongly influenced by RPI, classic , symphonic, and is more melodic, deep, with heavy strings arrangements).

3 stars Debut album of this Italian one man band (recorded still with few guest musicians), is not bad, but quite traditional post-rock album. I always waiting some fresh ideas or sounds from Italian post rock bands. Some of them attracted me by their ,very Italian, post rock, heavy influenced by Baroque, classic music, RPI, with deep, full bodied and very melodic sound, sometimes using many different acoustic strings for arrangements (violins, cellos).

Not this case is this debut album. Even if you can feel some Baroque or symphonic moments, the music there is quite traditional post-rock, heavy influenced by some British or Scandinavian bands. Cool, a bit melancholic, often acoustic, dreamy, even heavy in few places. Good quality post-rock, what is far not too bad for debut. Just too predictable one.

Thanks to snobb for the artist addition.
