Ingrannagi della Valle delivered a dazzling and brilliantly performed debut, `In Hoc Signo', back in 2013 on the Black Widow label, a thrilling shot-in-the-arm for the traditional vintage symphonic RPI sound, fuelled by endless searing violin and extravagant vocals. It was the classic sound of Italy's proud prog past meeting a youthful and exuberant future, one for lovers of bands such as Quella Vecchio Locanda. So having accomplished that, what was next for the band? How about aiming even higher in something of a different direction and possibly setting the standard for modern progressive rock overall? Because that's what the band have achieved with 2016's `Warm Spaced Blue', a defining work that not only almost completely eclipses their first work, but more than ever sets the band up for a bright future that lifts their status considerably.
Lucy In Blue is a new band from Iceland that plays music in a blend of the psychedelic and progressive rock of the 70's (Pink Floyd…). Creativity always goes hand in hand with inspiration and Lucy in Blue is clearly influenced and inspired by the great psychedelic progressive rock groups of the 70s. But that would not live up to the whole package alone: "The inspiration for our music is blowing in wind, constantly, under the sea, among the fish and nature, as blissful as morning sun. We aim to bring the primal nature out of people and help it reach harmonious equilibrium".
