Sepiatone

SEPIATONE is the genre-hopping fusion of Sicilian writer and singer Marta Collica and Hugo Race, the Australian producer and instrumentalist previously heard and seen with the Berlin-based True Spirit and the legendary Bad Seeds. Their collaboration started following recording sessions of Marta's previous outfit, the Italo-Australian group Micevice, for whom Race produced the 1999 release "Experiments on the Duration of Love". Now the duo have arrived with their debut CD, "In Sepiatone", an inspired collection of ten tracks assembled from a diverse cast of original recordings, guest musicians and vintage vinyl samples. The overall effect is a merging of earthy, acoustic sounds with hallucenogenic soundscapes and memorable pop songwriting, a kind of lysergic Mediterranean mix of exotica and soul. If Marta's vision stems from a deep immersion in latinic music and songwriting, Hugo's feel originates from long association with the avant/post-rock underground and a kind of darkly evocative use of hypnotic loops and sound treatments. Together, SEPIATONE produce a chiaroscuro of light and shade where Marta's cool vocals skate across rich fabrics of sound.
