Tinfoil and Tape is one of those exceptional bands, with a stirring talent of emotion, who reconsider the possibilities between rock and electronics with an ingenuity and a sensitivity as mystical as it is unprecedented.

The first contact on "Collider" is supernatural and mysterious . The intriguing electronic volutes traverse like an almost impenetrable fog the atmosphere of a piece with dimensions incessantly pushed back. Gerald Sonessa, in his deepest emotions, carries with authority and power a title of black splendor in his refrains. Shared between struggle and unison,

Tinfoil and Tape refuse to escape to reconcile electronic textures with alternative rock in a tornado of tumult and passion on "Cut-out" and its breathtaking last verse. It is here that everything is played out, in this magnificent torment which dwells and marries admirably each piece.

While the ghostly "Tidal Breathing" evokes a taste for the anxious epics of Radiohead and even Steven Wilson, and leaves his "already seen" pierce the beautiful darkness of the EP of luminous breakthroughs.

The ultimate "Kicking Clouds (Tertium Quid ) Continues to shape the striking and demanding vision of these "Black Spells" offered by Tinfoil and Tape. In the latter act, the Americans assembled a complex puzzle in which the electronic tensions of the keyboards and machines became one with the electric waves of the guitars and the implacable rhythmic drums.
