Packed with energy and effervescence, Piatcions combine the soundscaped inertia of Spiritualized with the set-back and hushed vocal indifference of Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman Anton Newcombe.
Their debut album “Senseless>Sense”was released on Sept. 5th 2011 on London label I Blame The Parents.
Senseless>Sense is a grown up album – gossamer sounds build to epic Kraut riffs, dazzling and epic. “A luscious, dense sound, artfully constructed and beautifully arranged” (Subba Cultcha) that got them massive airplay on BBC6 and XFM XPosure (John Kennedy).
Senseless>Sense was recorded with the production of James Aparicio (recently at work with Liars and Spiritualized).
Artwork is designed by Ciaran O’Shea (Disc Error, ECC).

Sumptuous, seductive and serene ‘Senseless>Sense’ is in short the sound of stars swooning, here the honey dripped cortege of star crossed lovelorn celestial anthems are spiked and purring to an alluring cosmic choreography dimpled with pulse racing struts. Losing Today
‘Senseless > Sense’ is all about trippy vibes; rolling, hypnotic drum beats; psychedelic, fuzzed-up guitar freak-outs; Sixties styled harmonies and lashings of reverb that all blend into a huge swirling wall of noise. 8 Loudhorizon (UK)
De l’écho, du fuzz, une voix perdue dans l’espace. Pas de doute, on est en plein shoegaze sous acide, branché à dix mille volts sur le courant psychédélique. My Car Is Full of Plums (FRA)
Il trio di Domodossola vola alto con questi nove brani. Suoni vaporizzati e inebrianti, idee tante. 7 XL La Repubblica
Tonnellate di chitarre e fuzz, pulviscolo spaziale a mitigare la portata psichedelica-shoegaze (versante noise, My Bloody Valentine) della poltiglia di suono. 7 Blow Up
‘Senseless > Sense’, con il suo sound ricco di citazioni psichedeliche, il ritmo sempre elevato delle chitarre e le belle armonie presenti è senza dubbio un lavoro apprezzabile. 7 Indie Roccia
