"Another shoegaze project", if that's what appeared on your mind firstly after hearing about this project, you should take a listen more on it. After drawing a lot of layers in reverb, Novanta is still able to make it different than your daily spoon of shoegaze.
Combining an electronical touch in every reverbs in his song resulting a best therapy event just for gazing black sky in the rain. Song like 'Windows' prove it at its best. Should we call it melancholic? If it's a yes, then "Worthless Whirls" is the most haunting melancholic stuffs in a form of noise. Give a serious attention to how the mood suddenly dropped after noisy guitar changed by whispering vocal before back to noise again. It might be a basic formula: loud-quiet-loud, but I can stop my self not to say that the bassline and drumbeat is sexy.
'Novanta Song' is my best bite in this album. This short track without vocal speak a lot to me. It's a simple song with a simple beat, lick, but rich of imagination. It is a train take you to somewhere only you can touch. Still the same feeling I found in '2young2die'. During the way to the end of the album, 'A Fever' still appear with its dark ambient, also 'Reason' with the strong reverb falling heavily, and finally 'La Maledizione Degli Affetti'.
Not trying to be so thorough, but don't you think that all the drumbeat here is very addictive? If it doesn't then yes for me. I think the beat make a special touch to turn this album into a different kind of shoegaze. Even if that little thing is not really a matter for you, this album is still good for gazing anything else deeply if you are bored with your shoes. Order it here and visit his page!
