Subsonica

When I went to Italy to begin my studies, back in 2002, Subsonica were one of my first good great encounters with the italian contemporary culture (along with some lighter ones like:Giorgia, Paola & Chiara, Daniele Silvestri, Elisa&Tiromancino). Subsonica are basically an electro-pop-rock band, withelectro being a tad more prominent in their sound. They manage to deliver ominousness even through their more cheerful songs.

For a couple of years I neglected to follow their work (given that I am no longer in Italy and accessibility to italian music here is a bit difficult), but the other day I came across one of their 2007 videos, La Glaciazione (The Freezing). The video, and the song, are drenched in acid sinisterness, well the chorus does scream: "This emptiness will explode" after all...

Good to meet you again Subsonica!
