Now they are here with “The Hours”; an album full of calm, relaxing dark folk inspired by different writers like Foydor Dostoyevsky, Samuel Beckett and Pier Paolo Pasolini. The lyrics are also quite dominating on this album since both band members Viola and Federico share the lead vocals; fragile, shy and vulnerable their singing blend in with the acoustic instruments. The mix of female and male vocals is very nice and suits the mood on the tracks. The electronic sounds are there as well, but this is very much an acoustic album. Calm is the one word definition of this album, it’s perfect music over a glass of wine on a autumn evening but it’s actually so calm that it balances on a thin line to become boring. There isn’t much variation on the album, everything is mixed together and none of the songs take more place than the other.
"The Hours" is quite well done, but I miss that extra spark to really make it stand out.
