The Big White
The Absynthe don't have a traditional starting point; Daniele Zonca and Matteo Basso, friends for many years, are two musicians coming from various musical backgrounds sharing a passion for synthesisers.
It’s through this passion that they met. Together with their music, ideas and instruments, they give their music immediate life through jam sessions and experimentation.
The result; a generally low, solid and concrete bpm with a mixture of LSD and psychedelic incessant rhythms, arpeggios, and melodic, misleading and spatial melodies. Reverberations of glacial environments, hot and underground pads, bass lines that never cease surprise and voices that speak of things unknown to most.
The songs are real journeys to imaginary lands, to places that everyone can find deep inside themselves when listening to THE ABSYNTHE, sitting quietly in an armchair or in the shadows, perhaps with a good absinthe to sip throughout the solitude.
Track 1 - The Big White
The great white is something that resides in every human being. Born from the idea that one of these men suddenly understands how to achieve it, how to see it, how to live it. It's a powerful, epic song, like a perennial glacier that dazzles you; ancient, powerful, absolute. It's the expression of something beautiful and majestic, it doesn't express emotions, but feelings; a man, in front of such a view is present and unmoved, not at the mercy of feelings and moods. Faced with such a sight, a man just is.
Track 2 - Vampire
Vampire is a track that best reflects the mood of THE ABSYNTHE. It is about the futile world that consumes the man and makes him its slave. It is an anxious, dark, deep sound; a collection of sounds that express the anxieties of the modern man, uncomfortable because of struggles that could place him in a great emotional crisis, up to the existential. It is music about dangerous invisible meanings, the money, the uncomfortableness in front of society, solitude untold, and all those thoughts that slowly steal vital energy as a vampire, making man a puppet in the hands of the world; someone who must do what they’re told without opposition.
Track 3 - Arrethos
Arrethos is that force of opposition, that allows movement to a particular direction. It is the problem that leads you to the solution. It is never easy to start a journey, there are many things resisting the path, but if the goal is strongly desired, then you will find a strength will that will take you to the finish line. Arrethos is this force.
