"A New Sound"

A New Sound
By Tristan D'Ennery

When was the last "alternative" band you heard that was actually alternative? I certainly can't remember. But last night I saw two original bands at the 10 High Club that truly provided an alternative to everything I've been hearing lately: Twelfth Planet and Cinetrope.

Both bands have female leads that, while their vocal styles are a bit different, share a talent for writing poetic, meaningful lyrics that draw the audience in. Twelfth Planet blends rock, jazz, new wave, funk, and world, creating a delicious musical collectivism that really does defy a label. Their songs encompassed everything from a bossa tune with inspirational lyrics to an angst-filled rock odyssey.

Twelfth Planet
Aradia, the vocalist (and sometimes guitarist) of Twelfth Planet, has an electrifying stage presence that hypnotized the crowd for the full 35 minutes that they were on stage - myself included. Her Eastern-influenced dance and the driving rhythmic, melodic quality of their songs made for a tasty combination. The whole band displayed high-caliber musicianship.



Songs: Trinity, Blank, Blue, For the Better, A-602, Jubilation, Whole, Celestial Spring, Burning Man, Indono, Dazed and Confucius


Feeling a bit camera shy


Twelfth Planet has a style that no one can define or duplicate. It has been called Rock, Soul, World Pop, Nu Jazz…Whatever fans call it, the feeling’s the same. Melodic, soulful; a complete menagerie of rhythmic blends, which evoke a positive emotion from the crowd. From the first note, listeners are beckoned to become part of the meaningful lyrics and reflective poetry set to driving beats. With the next tune, Twelfth Planet may chart a new course and transport their audience to a heavy thumping musically charged vibration, or ease them into a soothing guitar solo. Our timing and sensitivity to the crowd are pure and refreshing. Treats for listeners include lyrical messages like our songs “Blank” and “Trinity.”
The audience is captivated.

Our influences range from Brian Eno to Rush - from The Police to Ozzy - from Stone Roses to Bjork.

Our BIOS are as unique as our music. Within ONE week, these talented, naturally gifted musicians, composers and lyricists met, formed a group, went to the studio and laid our first collaborative demos in record time. Phenomenal, as True professionals, Twelfth Planet continues to deliver a unique & transcendental tone to our projects. We create “Gifts” for listeners.
The enclosed sample is just a small prelude of what audiences can look forward to from Twelfth Planet. Enjoy.
