9/10 Phil Staff review, 13 September 2012
I’ve not heard of these guys before and I doubt you have either? If you have then you’ll know they’ve been making cello and percussion based music for years and have played and recorded with Hauschka. If you didn’t know that then you do now! Anyway it’s on Sonic Pieces so you know it’s gonna be good (the label is a true trademark of quality) and the packaging is exquisite as it’s in a purple hardback sleeve all hand numbered of 450 copies.
Insa and Donja play cello whilst Kai handles the percussion. It’s beautiful sounding music with cellos lolling around over minimal percussion. ‘Insomnie Joyeuse’ has a very cinematic sound with the 2 cellists complementing each other perfectly. They create a feeling of melancholy throughout the album and I guess I’d have to shoehorn the word haunting in there as well. It’s occasional bouncy light hearted feel will lull you into a false sense of security as it’s a serious listen which needs your full attention from start to end. This ain’t no album of pop hits but it is a seriously good modern day neo classical album which will be treasured by those who decide to get one and finger it gently.
