Band Rock Alternative




"Beat (UK)"

Packed with energy and effervescence, they combine the soundscaped inertia of spiritualized with the set-back and hushed vocal indifference of Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe. - Beat (UK)

"Hits In the Car (UK)"

They find inspiration in psych rock of the 60'es and the alternative rock scene of the early 90'es and blends it all together nicely to create a very intriguing sound. - Hits In the Car (UK)

"Sounds XP (UK)"

Piatcions are a fine psychedelic pop outfit from Northern Italy. There EP has the drones and grooves of bands like Spacemen 3, The Warlocks and the BRMC but retains its pop hooks. - Sounds XP (UK)

"Indie Roccia (IT)"

‘Senseless > Sense’, con il suo sound ricco di citazioni psichedeliche, il ritmo sempre elevato delle chitarre e le belle armonie presenti è senza dubbio un lavoro apprezzabile. 7 - Indie Roccia (IT)

"Rumore (IT)"

Senseless Sense con le sue chitarre evanescenti in perenne distorsione è certo un omaggio a Ride, My Bloody Valentine e Slowdive, ma ha il grande merito di aver riportato sui nostri palchi il piacere della melodia sommersa sotto una coltre di noise (provare brani superbi come Sleepless e Time per credere). 8 - Rumore (IT)

"Blow Up (IT)"

Tonnellate di chitarre e fuzz, pulviscolo spaziale a mitigare la portata psichedelica-shoegaze (versante noise, My Bloody Valentine) della poltiglia di suono. 7 - Blow Up (IT)

"XL La Repubblica (IT)"

Il trio di Domodossola vola alto con questi nove brani. Suoni vaporizzati e inebrianti, idee tante. 7 - XL La Repubblica (IT)

"My Car Is Full of Plums (FRA)"

De l’écho, du fuzz, une voix perdue dans l’espace. Pas de doute, on est en plein shoegaze sous acide, branché à dix mille volts sur le courant psychédélique. - My Car Is Full of Plums (FRA)

"Mr. Atavist (USA)"

Traveling between psych and shoegaze, the Piatcions solidify their sound on Senseless > Sense with drawn out excursions like the propulsive As Seen Through a Telescope and more psych-pop/rock oriented cuts like Sleepless and Singapore Mon Amour, calling to mind the spaces that exist between outfits like the Dandy Warhols and Singapore Sling. - Mr. Atavist (USA)

"Loudhorizon (UK)"

‘Senseless > Sense’ is all about trippy vibes; rolling, hypnotic drum beats; psychedelic, fuzzed-up guitar freak-outs; Sixties styled harmonies and lashings of reverb that all blend into a huge swirling wall of noise. 8 - Loudhorizon (UK)

"Losing Today (UK)"

Sumptuous, seductive and serene ‘Senseless>Sense’ is in short the sound of stars swooning, here the honey dripped cortege of star crossed lovelorn celestial anthems are spiked and purring to an alluring cosmic choreography dimpled with pulse racing struts. - Losing Today (UK)

"Unpeeled (UK)"

Piatcions, they can’t conceal it, are a ‘proper’ rock band, with muscle and melody in place. - Unpeeled (UK)

"Subba Cultcha (UK)"

A luscious, dense sound, artfully constructed and beautifully arranged. 8 - Subba Cultcha (UK)
