Surfacing in A Coruña in Spain is Xoel Diamante (Guitar / Vocal), Juan Corredoira (Guitar), Pablo García (Bass) and Nicolás Cotelo (Drums) who form the prog-rock band The Sonic Headlight.
There is an angularity to sounds which emerge from the speakers that make you immediately take a glance to check there is a sense of the perpendicular to the walls and a set square to the ceiling and much like those degrees of error, so The Sonic Headlight invest into their sounds inflections which give the material its resonance.
The Sonic Headlight explore the imperfections of the eight note scale and investigate the differences between 432 and 440 Hz tuning to deliver music which always seems out of kilter, but is more exact than the division by eight can provide. Like an algorithmic table the further up and down the scales the band ranges, so the music bends more inwards as the log tables exaggerate the aspects of simple scales which cause those with auditory OCD to recoil when hearing most compositions. Perhaps more appropriately as a genre definition – ‘log-scale reproduction for those with sensitivity to Hertz irregularities in standard scaling’.
The début LP by The Sonic Headlight – Take #1 was made available last month and can be ordered on bandcamp.
