Neronoia, a cooperation of the Italian bands Canaan (progressive doom) and Colloquio (darkwave/electro), has made it quite difficult to tell something about the band or about its latest release Il Rumore Delle Cose (the noise of things). Italian information, numbered song titles, music that hardly can be described… In a certain way it is frustrating, but after hearing the actual album I couldn’t care less about the given information.
Right from the start of ‘XI’ - their previous record Un Mondo In Me consists of songs ‘I’ to ‘X’ - Neronoia takes you away on a mysterious trip through their dark and experimental world. Their minimal, down-tempo music has a very empty production with the drums and bass almost constantly on the background. The Italian semi-spoken and sometimes whispered vocals are together with the atmospheric synthesizer parts and the doomy guitar melodies the most important guides through your own fantasies.
Due to the vague, but inspiring subject and more specifically the Italian-spoken vocals, the listener is totally free in how he interprets this synthesizer-based postrock, doom, ambient mixture. Especially in the evening hours this music is perfect when you’re trying to forget everything around you for a while. I’ve never done yoga, but this is probably an easier way to free your mind for a short period.
