After releasing the widely praised granitic double LP ‘N either Virtue Nor Anger’ and an intense period of touring around Europe, it seemed like Sonic Jesus’ fate followed an already traced path.
Two years later, it comes ‘Grace’ instead. A work that quest the inner nature of the band itself, uncovering the mercurial and experimental temper of Tiziano Veronese.
Utterly written and conceived by Tiziano during a long-lasting springtime, the new album unhinges the previously psych-drone approach. It dives deep into more synth/post-punk sounds and tied up to the most recent and inn ovative anglo-american wave tradition, reminiscent of early Interpol and Editors.
New shades and new colours, a different light brighten up the monolithic stillness typical of the debut, so that the tight coldness of drums and arps stands out from the rest.
Several fresh elements overturn the once guitar-driven writing that discovers a primitive, sensual, melodic voice playing along with lively bass lines and tronic influences, just a few steps far from the latest works by Trentemøller and Moderat.
Marco Barzetti (formally Weird.) composed the lyrics. Existential themes underline the close relationship between man and universe, where a welcoming Mother Nature protects the main character from the recurrence of past nightmares, by offering new dreamscape perspectives as well as a future salvation.
Each end carries a new start: ‘Grace’ turns the page and rewrites the tale of Sonic Jesus.
«When endings become beginnings, there shall come Grace.»
