Penti - Bosk

Single review by

What we know about Italian artist Penti is all a little hazy, but in attempting to make sense of his work through press materials and digging around online, it seems as though he's a composer of sorts, having worked on TV and film before releasing his debut album 'Isdiri Misti Sini' late last year. Penti, real name Marco Porcelli, is solely responsible for the music and accompanying video to 'Bosk', the second release from his album which has been trimmed for the single version, but we've included both edits below. So essentially he's an artist in more ways than one, taking total control over his output.

He describes his music as being influenced by Sigur Ros, Brian Eno and Pink Floyd, and that definitely shows in this ambient piece. Although only a short instrumental, it does manage to be quite evocative nonetheless and is surprisingly delicate. Where other bands may be tempted to stretch out this idea for much longer, Penti stops it in its tracks at just the right moment to leave us wanting more. If you like what you hear, you can download the whole album for free from his website or stream it below.
