Creating music which sits in a space of its own Coletta are unafraid to challenge their audience resulting in tracks which will find divergent reactions as they merge trippy, toock, thrash metal and progressive-rock in to one melting pot and potentially alienating each as the result is far from the derivations.
The fact I suggest spending time in their company alerts you as to which side of the divide I lay – here is the third of the six tracks on the album – Blossom – for you to form your own view.
The Japanese orchestral-wave creator 紺紗実 (kon sami) was introduced earlier in the year.

From the LP blossom a live performance at the album launch of the last of the nine tracks 夜のワルツ (waltz at night) was made available in which the richness of depth of the compositions is explored in a track that drifts through the room like a lotus leaf supporting an infrastructure of wading lifeforms.
The Japanese synth-soul creator 紺 紗実 (Kon Sami) released the LP blossom earlier in the month, though thus far, only in Japan.

The title track and first of the nine songs – blossom – provides a good indication of the album. Opening with piano which is subsequently accompanied by synths and instrumentation delivering music a calmly drifting measure. The title track, as it evolves is stippled with influences from Southern US blues as slide guitar joins in the just over four minutes number.
