Piano for Airport, four piece Band from Rome and arounds, have got an exquisite taste for alternative pop tunes, emotional and somehow introspective.
Another sunday on Saturn is Their brilliant debut full-lenght record, self-produced so far as fully worthy a more official record label production: - the new tracks are able to go in and out from the writing path introduced by Their former Much more EP released last year [free download], - a sort of multicolour seesaw between Pinback, Radiohead's Kid A (Overturn the lap) and The Cure's bass lines (20 years-old killer revolver), with a particular unorthodox inclination for electronic/synth patterns, - icing on the cake.
There are some tracks totally pop-memorable: - S.O.S. (sink or swim), featuring the infectious lyrics/refrain 'i waste / i waste my time / i wasted  / my time / my time' - as well as Ghosts and pillows' harmonious and melancholic swell, and last but not least, Monkey theorem's one too, with a beautiful two voices play (two male singers alternate lead vocals from song to song) - able to build the right climax (- although, i have just one personal negative note on this: their english sounds too much italian-ish, - and that's a pity).
Plus, tracks like Y-el, Tired eyes, the interlude Just done, give dissonance and needed oxygen to the whole tracklist, and refresh the listener's curiosity for what's coming next. It is like the Band loves to experiment with traditional and modern instruments, - and that's probably what makes of Another sunday on Saturn a nuanced record: it finds its strenght through simplicity and its modern reading keys, - groovy, nicely textured, - a pleasant surprise for the italian alternative-pop music category, featuring the good cards to capture a wider audience outside.

Piano for Airport, Gruppo di quattro di Roma e provincia, sciorinano uno squisito gusto per melodie alternative pop, emozionali e in qualche modo introspettive.
Another sunday on Saturn è il Loro brillante disco di debutto, autoprodotto per quanto ugualmente meritevole di una più ufficiale etichetta discografica: le nuove tracce sono capaci di entrare ed uscire dalla carreggiata della scrittura introdotta dal precedente Much more EP dello scorso anno [download gratuito qui], - una sorta di altalena multicolore tra Pinback, i Radiohead di Kid A (Overturn the lap) e alcune linee di basso dei Cure che furono (20 years-old killer revolver), con una particolare inclinazione poco ortodossa per pattern elettronici e di synth, - spesso ciliegina sulla torta.
Ci sono diverse tracce pienamente pop-memorabili: - S.O.S. (sink or swim), con il contagioso ritornello  'i waste / i waste my time / i wasted  / my time / my time' - o l'armonioso e melanconico crescendo di Ghosts and pillows, nonchè quello di Monkey theorem, con un bel gioco delle voci dei due cantanti che spesso alternano i ruoli, - capaci di costruire il giusto climax (per quanto su questa canzone, ho una personale riserva sull'inglese un pò maccheronico, che peccato).
In più, tracce quali Y-el, Tired eyes, l'interludio Just done, - queste danno la giusta dissonanza e necessario ossigeno a tutta la tracklist, - tengono accesa la curiosità dell'ascoltatore per quel che seguirà, - e forse è questo che fa di  Another sunday on Saturn un disco dalle diverse sfumature, - accattivante e ben strutturato, - una bella sorpresa per la categoria alternative pop italiana, nonchè con le giuste carte per catturare un pubblico più vasto fuori confine.
