There is a shelter made of universal sounds and thoughts for the shipwrecked people of our time, it’s “Castaways” by Sycamore Age.

REVIEW

Sycamore Age’s music is fast-paced and nervous, supported by a characteristic solid rhythm. But it’s also suggestive and visionary, it explores melodies that are never banal, and never done for their own sake.

The shipwreck is the context where these eight tracks unfold, in which experimentation and songwriting intertwine majestically, illuminated by their uncommon talent. Psychedelic digressions and minimalism, geometric riffs and arpeggios that augment space by adding unexpected shapes and scenarios.

A long time ago we would have described it as heavily contaminated author’s rock, today it’s enough to say that albums conceived with such talent don’t find (and don’t need) particular categorization, having within them a baggage of information, influences, aesthetics, and messages clearly and unequivocally brilliant and full of artistic value.
