Castles in Spain
Castles in Spain
Lori Castro engineered the album. “Reminiscing Chapter V,” states Sylvia, “ flows from beginning to end, like a really good movie. You listen and get caught up in the characters and the stories. Castles In Spain has that San Francisco sound that we have not heard in a very long time. It’ s an album that has found the right time and place.” Castles in Spain has been described as being inspired by many people, things and genres, but ultimately defying description.
Castles in Spain’ s unique sonic agenda melds tribal rhythms, cinematic and atmospheric vibes and even Middle Eastern and Spanish influences into a sensuously soulful and melodically ethereal style. Castles in Spain is fronted by award-winning vocalist, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter, Biachi Notaro, who embodies the swagger of Joan Jett, heartfelt passion of Melissa Etheridge and Johnette Napolitano and melodic songwriting sensibilities of Linda Perry singing and performing with her mother, a professional singer, from Bombay, India, at only four years old. Her love of Rock and Roll developed upon receiving her first drum set at age seven. Castles in Spain is rounded out by Joe Birtola on bass guitar, Anthony Verdier on drums and recently added Nissim Aharon on keys/programming. 1340 Magazine states “the music is at once tough, lush and hypnotic, often reminiscent of the epic sounding Jane’s Addiction,” and The San Francisco Bay Guardian describes Castles in Spain as, “Imagine Jimmy Page and Robert Plant riding through the desert, kicking up dust and camel shit at some Cairo bazaar, where Chrissie Hynde is sitting in with Jane’s Addiction, playing Black Sabbath and middle-eastern folk music.” Online Rock magazine concludes, “You cannot categorize the music, yet the music has a pop sensibility and the performances are passionate and sincere. The band has an amazing ability to speak to their audiences,” and the music is, “ at once tough, lush and hypnotic, often reminiscent of the musical atmosphere created by bands like Pornos For Pyros.
