Italian alternative electronic rock band Medivh is out with their grand new song Pietra. Pietra, meaning rock in Italian, is a haunting rock song. The act primarily consists of brothers Emmanuele and Tommaso on vocals/guitar and bass respectively. There is also Lorenzo on electric/acoustic drums and percussions. Their influences include acts like Porcupine Tree, Billie Eilish, Nine Inch Nails, and Mogwai. With Pietra, we have a track Steven Wilson, Jeff Buckley, and Mikael Akerfelft would be proud of. The band from Toscana has managed to create a nice for themselves with their unique sound. Formed in 2020, Medivh have had a two-part EP and two singles releases with their last release Rebirth clocking more than a hundred thousand streams on Spotify.
The song begins with a bell-like synth bass piano lines and chiming elements which perforate the track like needles. We hear robotic processed vocals with a noise rock aesthetic to it in the beginning. All of this is with a string section acting as the sonic canvass. The second half of the song has an acoustic section and evocative vocals by Emmanuele. We also hear some interesting electronic percussion sounds. The dynamics of the song build up to the acoustic outro of the song sounds as grand in scope as any formulaic distorted electric guitar outro might.
Pietra creates an otherworldy soundscape with some very experimental aural elements and arrangements. Medivh manages to create a stunning amalgamation of industrial, progressive, and ambient post-metal sounds. While their last song Rebirth had a more radio-friendly catchy yet experimental sound, in Pietra, Medivh pushes the knobs on musical innovation. Their dark heavy sound with strong melodic and diverse musical timbres ensures we are hooked to the song. Pietra is a haunting experimental alternative rock song that will conjure up strong evocative imagery with marvelous technical and musical innovation. In due parole: Canzone Stupenda!
