Cristiano Lupo played the guitar on SiG’s first record. He then migrated to drums, only to then settle on the bass. Now he has decided that he plays tenor sax. Alberto Carozzi, after years at guitar, is now on bass. Matteo Uggeri makes drawings, deals with production and beats, and sings for a few seconds. Franz Krostopovic sits at the piano, but with his trusty violin in his lap, and a viola close by. Simone Riva plays drums in a pair of special songs.
This new record is named after Milan, the city in which they live, and the music explores the relationship between it and water (its hidden dominant element). The album is a curious collection that features subhumans speaking with liquids and any sort of influence.
Enzo Jannacci and Throbbing Gristle.Reem Soliman and And Also The Trees. Prog and industrial. Electronic and jazzy palms. Goths and Charlie Parker.
It’s always hard to play and then release music but Sparkle in Grey keep trying, with the precious help of a few illuminated labels. Sparkle in Grey do not resign to extinguishing themselves.
Resistance, resistance, resistance.
