Sardinian indie label Here I Stay doesn't miss the point, and Their newest release A Wish Upon A Scar, debut album by one-man Band Vanvera, is another little unexpected jewel, a white fly over the italian underground panorama. Sort of Johnny Cash vs Nick Cave vs. Leonard Cohen, in a mix of post-punk (Emma, Am I A Hyena?), 50s love songs (Haunt), lonely (tremolo guitars of nocturnal Tangly Hay) and sinister (instrumental Ondina, as well as the new-wave drift of Watchagonnado?), together tribal and sensual especially thanks to Mauro Vacca's deep vocals (fine also on chorus - By An' By), unquiet and warm (Desire Give Me Rest), thing that somehow harmonizes His blues with elegance, at the same time gentle and rough (Soot Suit). Rich song-writing, passionated and spooky, - Vanvera's Music is sophisticated and reflective, a great soundtrack for the cold season to come. - Last but not least, the whole CD artwork is really inspiring, opus by Antioco Ruggeri. Muzik @ myspace/vanvera.
L'indie label sarda Here I Stay non sbaglia un tiro, e la Loro ultima uscita A Wish Upon A Scar, album debutto del one-man Band Vanvera, è un ennesimo gioiello inatteso, - una mosca bianca nel panorama underground italiano. - Sorta di Johnny Cash vs Nick Cave vs. Leonard Cohen, in un mix di post-punk (Emma, Am I A Hyena?), 50s love song (Haunt), malinconico (le chitarre in tremolo di Tangly Hay) e sinistro (la strumentale Ondina, come anche il tiro new-wave di Watchagonnado?), insieme tribali e sensuali, specie grazie alla voce profonda di Mauro Vacca (ottima anche nei cori - By An' By), inquieta e calda (Desire Give Me Rest), cosa che in qualche modo armonizza il Suo blues con eleganza, contemporaneamente gentile e rude (Soot Suit). Molta attenzione per le partiture, appassionate e velate di mistero. - La Musica di Vanvera è sofisticata e riflessiva, - una buona colonna sonora per la stagione fredda a venire. - In ultimo, non per importanza, - l'intero artwork del CD è veramente da plauso, - by Antioco Ruggeri.
