about

Produced by Mattia Coletti and Garage Records, “Gigantic” comprises eight tracks which find the band in a clear compositive state of grace and represent Rigolò’s artistic and techincal maturity. But maturity and extreme attention to sounds don’t subdue freshness and spontaneity, fundamental features of the italian band since ever. The album’s narrative line is soaked in a poetic and bright mood, expressing itself in clear folk tinges or in indie-steering pop-rock entrys, with instrumental progressions and melodic openings of great suggestion. In order to set Rigolò we could easily quote renowned names (Built to Spill, Vaselines, Snow Patrol, but also Notwist or Agnes Obel) but comparison would be reductive of the band’s great and talented personality. Lightness, in “Gigantic”, is masterly crafted tool, with Carella’s voice as soft as a whisper, a pattern book of strophes and refrains, catchy hooks (“You Run”, “In the Wake of Kites”), nuances, small rustlings, subtle sound beats and a severe harmonic-melodic structuring which evokes pop scenarios of rare bightness. And then Jenny’s cello, prominent since the opening track, “Voiceless”, where it faces Napolitano’s drums only. A cello often with a sharp nature, with a structural function (“Before it Gets Dark”), soloist, replacing the guitar, able to produce sounds that sound electronic but that are not at all. And speaking of electronics, we find it sparsely in the record, but inserted in a delicate way, at the service of acoustic. Accordingly, the live set is consistent with the record, which, starting with its title, evokes huge spaces and exalts them in a cinematic way, opening with the darkness of “Voiceless” and closing with the surrounding serendipity of “Better Soul”.

Track Name: In the wake of kites
IN THE WAKE OF KITES

I used to fall asleep
While your words
Stroked my face

I know the way you are
I see in your face
my own eager star

A short run then
I'm leading the flight
Over hills the moon is bright

I follow her
In the wake of kites
Blowing strong on leaves in flames

I heard the little bird
Telling the fish
I won’t hide, I’ll fly

I've seen the farmer come
Winning his bet
With the merchant from town

A short run then
I'm leading the flight
Over hills the moon is bright

I follow her
In the wake of kites
Blowing strong on leaves in flames to
cover all i left there

I knew the sky was blue
Dark in the night
(And) not black behind the light

I saw a flock of birds
Falling to the ground
With a noisy dazzling light

I'm flying in the wake of kites
The moon has got your eyes
Please don't leave my hand
Now I'm blowing on the sand
Bedtime story is gonna end
Track Name: On the radio
ON THE RADIO

On the radio

time is going on

Hey!

Listen!

How you going

I wanna tell you

what are you thinking of


On the radio

time is going on

Hey!

Listen!

Start dancing

I wanna tell you

What are you dreaming of
Track Name: You You You
YOU YOU YOU

Your eyes

your walk

your smell

your words

your smile

your tears

Your time

your mind

I feel

you shine

my mind

I just wanna fix my mind

I don't wanna fix your mind
Track Name: Before it gets dark
BEFORE IT GETS DARK

I want love

only love

another good chance

before it gets dark
Track Name: You run
YOU RUN

You run / your way

through days / so fast

Don't throw / your life

away / like dust

and pray / yourself

without faith / and laughs ah ah ah

When your thought isn't meant

to be understood

don't expect to understand

Summer comes / when Winter ends

You write and type

you might look into my eyes

and always trust

me when I say feelings can wear out
Track Name: Another good chance
ANOTHER GOOD CHANCE

Why / don't you express

far from a crowd of thoughts

your deepest loneliness

Quit hiding behind your face

building a mirror day after day

How can I explain

your life is all in vain

your soul is always in pain

trusting the world is not a crime

you can improve it time after time
Track Name: Better soul
BETTER SOUL

When you wake up by my side

I see my own true paradise

are you

are you happy now?

When I look into your eyes

(I) Know what is wrong and what is right

are you

are you my better soul
