Press quotes about us:

From Rock Hard issue n. 26 – The Distance Between (2014) review by Michele Martini

“It is a complex and fascinating sound universe, the one outlined by Kaos India, whose stylistic proposal stems from the convergence of multiple artistic perspectives merged within a single, magmatic core. There is a unique structure, in the context of the individual pieces: each of them gives rise to a scenario in perpetual evolution, lapping territories from time to time such as classic rock, hard, prog or simply experimentation in the broad sense . In the wake of an emphasis on creative left free to express themselves freely, the quartet from Modena wanted to indulge themselves with the sole objective to create something personal and original. The emotions are certainly not lacking, between the grooves of The Distance Between. The continuous (but consistent) alternation of scenarios ranging from thoughtful phrasing and electrical vibrations gives chills and ideas of existential reflections, in a flurry of notes and colors that properly reward the commitment and determination of a band constantly reaching out in search of well-deserved visibility, a goal more than ever of reach of Kaos India.”


From Digital Earbuds Issue 14 – The Distance Between (2014):
“Thank God bands like Kaos IndiA still exist. And if Italy is slow to appreciate the Indie Alternative Rock surge, then I’m proud to help push their music beyond its borders. The songs on the band’s new albumThe Distance Between, sends the listener on a journey atop a ridge teetering with one foot on solid alternative rock and the other on a psychedelic slope. Forget about keeping your balance while listening. Mattia Camurri, Vincenzo Moreo, Francesco Sireno, and Joe Schiaffi from Emilia-Romagna, Italy. They have purposely created an album that mesmerizes your earbuds with short, modern alternative licks as well as long-play, psych-fringed songs reminiscent of a colorful 70’s jam. I’ve included two songs on the playlist. The first, “Thank You Anyway, Thank You Everyday” is an example of an organized chaotic jam that leaves you wanting more, even if the song is nearly eight minutes long. Enjoy getting lost in it! The song “Daybreak” is the final song on their album, and I deliberately made it the last song on this Issue’s playlist as well. It’s an awesome instrumental finale for any playlist!”

From “RockGarage.it” – Kaos IndiA EP

“Kaos India, two words that clash against each other: the first one conveys the feeling of noise and din, whereas the second one inspires the idea of oriental settings, instrumental but at the same time melliflous and hypnotic. And this is exactly the music proposed by these four artists: a harmonious mix between rock and psychedelic tones that ideally aims at building something that will be perceived and used without hurry, note after note.”
“Led Zeppelin would rejoice if they could listen to the instrumental bits of Moment for Breakfast, a track that embodies the less spunky and more reflexive Counting Crows in a music vision that is more alternative than rock, but still old-fashioned, vintage. The Passenger Seat is the calmest amongst all the tracks in the EP: with its distended timing and its post-metal/post-rock taste, this track does not strike for its energy but impresses for its poise, yet being different (once again!) from the next track. Fading Past Song is a track with a reinforced humour and stronger injections of electric guitar. It changes completely its course one minute before the end, by serving up funky scores much more sophisticated and out of the boundaries than we expected. The more time passes, the harder it becomes to classify this work. The last track, Seize the Day, kicks off with a start that makes the listener dream of modern rock. The listener is then taken back to the nostalgic atmosphere of the preceding track, Inside Me, as the ever changing song brushes Floydian spaces with breath taking breaks.”

 

From “Codice Eretico” on musicalblog.it – Kaos IndiA EP
“We are in the area of the rock that we prefer: smart, with many incursions into the so called “progressive”, without the usual distorted riffs. I will clarify immediately: guitars are there, but they are not always aiming at a sound as pumped as a superficial listener would expect. Cool cd, cool tracks, we like the singer a lot.”
Fabio Ranghiero

 

From “Aristocrazia Webzine” – Kaos IndiA EP
“Anachronistically cool: this is what I feel after listening to a band like Kaos India.”
“This quartet seems to be magically trapped in the chunk of the 90’s that made the melancholic and rainy Seattle famous, or at least this is what is partly hidden behind the music of the homonymous EP, an engaging performance that inspires different atmospheres.”
“In order to compose good music you don’t necessarily have to be an ‘alternative’ genius, nor ad ad-hoc inventor. You should rather have passion, will to express yourself and a minimum of knowledge to translate your idea into notes: qualities that Kaos India certainly don’t lack.”
“Kaos India is rock, nothing more, nothing less: it surely has flaws, just like every other first work, but it sounds really good, and I think this is an enough reason to get to know the Kaos India band. What do you guys think?”
