In the universe of theatrical music world. You have bands with special ideas that turn an album with mixed from seventies to eighties tunes. All those mixed up with modern parts giving a very hard to pigeon all the music style.
I have, and still hear special albums ; SOS is one of them. You can feel there is one man ‘s creations behind. I’ve been a guitarist singer and I can relate to what I hear on this album. A lot of image to set this universe out of time, getting you confused. Is it a French Band? an Italian one? a Japanese one… the confusion stays until you read few lines that tells a bit about the band.
Tons of 80’s influences with a modern touch, the mask aren’t new yet they bring another attractive style. Vocal melodies following the guitar ones, it gives songs you keep in mind for long. They manage to capture the secret of how a song should get attached quickly in your brain.
