Sontaag to Release Space Opera, 4/28
by BWW News Desk - Apr 17, 2014

In the grand tradition of high concept progressive rock comes an epic cross-media hybrid where cerebral science Fiction meets visceral rock 'n' roll. Sontaag's eponymous debut album has been described as 'the space opera that Pink Floyd never wrote', 'a modern-day Tubular Bells', 'a prog-rock War Of The Worlds', but no reference point or sound-bite nails its seamless combination of space rock, narrative spoken word, and evocative ambience quite as neatly as 'sonic cinema'. Recorded in New York City and London, co-produced and mixed by Youth (Killing Joke, The Fireman) for Big Life Management, 'Sontaag' is a stunning and immersive listening experience. An evolutionary progression combining cutting edge sounds with classic dynamics, adapting the rock experience for today's digital environment. (more...)
