We are thrilled to be one of the first to review Alessandro Ciminata’s debut EP “Over And Over” that was released today.
At Indie Top 39, we have been big fans of Italian-born, London based artist Alessandro Ciminata, from the very beginning.
Ever since his early single “Demons”, we’ve relished every moment of witnessing this brilliant artist carve out his own unique style.INDIE TOP 39
But in our current year of 2020, his style has shown an even further development, with his debut EP, Over and Over.
While Alessandro has a fairly extensive catalogue of great singles, Over and Over has quite the intimate, and carefully selected list of four tracks in total. Three of these singles came in the form of Ciminata’s most recent teaser tracks, with the latest released of them, “Lovers”, being amongst the tracks we selected for our singles you need to hear on the Sunday after its release.
Going into this EP, we are first treated to a brand new track, which also happens to be the title track of said EP. “Over and Over” is a refreshingly upbeat introduction and a perfect example of how Alessandro Ciminata has managed to create such an awesome blend of different sounds and moods.
For those who are unfamiliar with Alessandro’s sound, one might say that it could be described as a kind of electronic folk aesthetic, and Alessandro Ciminata really makes it work incredibly well.
Next up is the track “Signs”, which was the earliest released single to be included on the EP. The steady rhythm and the equally steady progression really allows this track to stick in the minds of fans.
This track is then followed by the incredible “Wasted On Each Other”, which really amps up the electronic feel, which helps this track to really shine as a highly colourful and atmospheric piece, not to mention that it’s infectiously catchy.
And finally, the EP concludes with the haunting and stripped-back sound of “Lovers”. The sheer level of emotion that this song masterfully conveys is utterly gorgeous to listen to, and we feel that this was a great choice for a track to finish off this fantastic project.
We are absolutely thrilled to finally have listened to Alessandro Ciminata’s debut EP, especially after listening to all of the brilliant tracks he had released during his musical growth. We have always seen something truly special within Alessandro Ciminata, and strongly believe that this EP will be a very important chapter in his musical journey.
