4 stars Osta Love are a studio project that has been put together by childhood friends Leon Ackermann (drums) and Tobias Geberth (guitar, vocals, keys and bass). They started Osta love in 2010, and this is this is their debut album, showing that they have been heavily influenced by Porcupine Tree, Muse, Pink Floyd and other more emotional and dreamy bands. There may not be too much in terms of rock within this prog rock album, but there is just enough so that it doesn't become a blancmange of sound. There is just enough diversity and contrast to keep the listener involved and become emotionally divested in what is going on. Lyrically the album is dealing with urban life, surveillance and escapism, and the image on the front cover is incredibly striking. Why are they covered in red? Who is she/he? What is their purpose?

This doesn't feel like a project, but very much as a band album, and it will be interesting to see how they develop as if they are going to take this onto the live circuit then of course they will need more musicians, but will that change the sound? At the present this is brooding, compelling and interesting stuff. For more details visit
