Comprising six original tracks with collaborations and glowing vocal appearances from partner in crime Ali Love, Zeben Jameson from A Mountain Of One and Findlay Brown, 'Invisible Cities' took shape in a haze of romanticism and analog paraphernalia. Recorded while marooned on the White Isle last summer, the collection perfectly embodies the art of undulating psychedelia and the dreamy Balearic sound. Versatile Italian duo Luca Cazal and Sebastiano Properzi aka Luca C & Brigante are on their way to owning this sound. Soothing soundscapes of drifting island grooves bathed in melancholia and scattered with cosmic dust, unfold in tales of strays in love.
From echoes of breaking waves, 'The Beach' builds into a Fleetwood Mac-esque love song full of expansive melodies, laid-back grooves and the ever-intoxicating voice of Mr. Ali Love. 'On A Star', where Ali also features, continues in the vein of a romantic's oblivion with a soft-focus folk sensibility. The fluid strumming motion of 'Time', featuring the retro-pop singer Findlay Brown, is delightful in its simplicity and the tropical 'Sunrise' works as a fuzzy, scenic soundtrack to an island at dawn.
'Morning Sun' features the vocals of Zeben Jameson, who infuses the sparkling instrumentals with his burning tale of loss and renewal. Luca C himself sings final track 'Space Lullaby' - a floating odyssey of dream-like atmospheres, oscillating synths, rising strings and melodies that rock beside a beating heart.
Rising stars Luca C & Brigante will return to the realms of house music with another EP later in the year and a forthcoming album, featuring legends Roisin Murphy, Robert Owens and Andrew Weatherall is expected Spring 2012.
