La Casa Al Mare: This astro (Ep, 2015)

La Casa Al Mare son una banda romana novel pero ello no quiere decir no experta pues sus miembros son antiguos componentes de bandas como Sea Dweller, My Violent EgoLa Calle Mojada.  
No esconden sus influencias (son adoradores de MBV) pero contribuyen al enriquecimiento contemporáneo del género, y practican un Shoegaze de guitarras, con tremendas influencias del Fuzz más ruidoso. Más que interesantes…

“The trio (Marco Poloni on vocals/bass, Paolo Miceli on drums, with Alessio Pindinelli on guitar and vocals) don’t hide their influences, ‘This Astro‘ overtly borrows from the 90s. The My Bloody Valentine influence is clear, however they do add enough of their own charm to make it their own. It could also be argued that La Casa al Mare have much stronger vocal chords than their forefathers *dodges rotten tomatoes*. I suppose that’s how the sound has evolved, ‘This Astro‘ capitalizes on the gorgeous sonic swells but supports them with catchy melodies (that aren’t overdone). The EP doesn’t bury too many sounds in the mix, you can still make out what’s going on, and there’s not an over indulgence in lo-fi aesthetics either.
‘I Don’t Want To’ gets the EP off to a punchy start. It’s a short blast of swooning tremolos and melodic haze which runs into ‘Sunflowers’, a reminder that, all this distortion and naval gazing doesn’t have to be depressing! Its choruses are light and positive, one of the highlights. ‘At All’ (first public stream above), is a straight ahead indie rocker that bridges into the sedate ‘Tonight Or Never’, a dream pop lullaby that shows us what La Casa al Mare sound like without all the fuzz. ‘CD Girl’ is an unassuming song, it washes over you without the same hooks as the other singles but is still a strong entry. The CD bonus cut ‘This Astro‘ is their most experimental work yet, a five minute instrumental. It’s filled with reverb heavy sounds jutting into the mix. It forms a dissonant cacophony mid way, and almost falls into a heap before wondering into the fade out” (Sounds Better with Reverb)
