Ossicles biography
This Norwegian band was founded in 2011 by Sondre VELAND (drums, percussion, vocals, keyboards) and Bastien VELAND (guitars, vocals, bass, upright bass, keyboards). Their music is influenced by many genres including jazz, progressive, ambient and others. Their debut double album 'Mantelpiece' was released in December 18th under their own label No Weather Records, consisting of material written in the age of 17 years and some other have been written later. Both musicians play everything themselves on this album. In 2013, STEVEN WILSON sent the record to the major record label saying ''I cannot believe that such young guys can make music like they do.'' In 2014, MIKE PORTNOY invited them to Progressive Nation at Sea. They are currently signed to Karisma Records.

5 stars When songs of a first album have been written many years ago, it can give us a little masterpiece. These young musicians and brothers Sondre and Bastien Veland have been to the Steven Wilson's school with an album that is influenced by many styles of music from pop, jazz, ambient and progressive rock. The music is rich in atmosphere and the vocals sometimes serve as another instrument carrying the melody. The songs structures and the overall sound is as I said firmly in the style of Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree with the transition with some slow paced acoustic passage to heavier electric sections. The mood of the music is mostly dark and the tempo rather slow but the emotion with occasional burst of heavier guitar parts is perfectly developed to create some beautiful songs and catchy chorus.

The song "Watersoul II" brings some techno passages that share some OSI influence. "Slur" shows the darker and stranger side of the music with hunting voices. The epic of 27 minutes "Silky Elm" offers in the first part Hindu music with strange noise, exotic instruments and sounds. What is too like about this album is that it's complex and experimental and at the same time easy to enjoy from the first listen. This is due to the way the songs have been crafted by developing the melody slowly putting upfront emotion and atmosphere before technique. I hope the band can produce another album of the quality in the near future.
