Love at first sight.

Today I would like to introduce a very special band. Until recently I didn't know them myself. But I am very grateful to have discovered them, because what happens musically on their latest album "Flickering Lights" definitely belongs to the top league of this genre.

Several features of the music could already convince me immediately at the first listen. We are dealing here with four talented and accomplished musicians who manage to create an arc of tension around their songs for more than an hour that won't let you go. One of their strengths is the vocal harmonies, which appear again and again in the songs and enrich them in such a way that you would like to rewind the song to hear these parts again. The sound is reminiscent of Steven Wilson / Porcupine Tree, but without copying it, but developing its own style from it. Through the flawless production, each instrument gets a fixed place in the overall mix - and the music never seems overloaded. Especially the clean guitar work of Ferdinand Schuch can inspire in the tendentially guitar-oriented pieces by tastefully switching between a metallic and heavy sound, as well as almost Pink Floyd-like passages.

The listener is offered a lot of dynamics and tension. But above all, the listener is offered a journey through the various facets of modern prog, which is what makes this album so worth listening to in my view. Mrs. Kite is my recommendation today to all fans of modern prog music, fans of the progressive phase of Steven Wilson's music and to all people who are looking for new, unfortunately much too unknown music - you won't regret it!
