In this review, we dive into "Fishes Were Everywhere," the debut album from Self Portraits, a submission that stood out amidst the myriad of music we receive at Prog Radio. It's not often that a cold-call album sent to us immediately grabs our attention, but this one had us hooked from the first note, compelling us to not just give it a cursory listen but to fully immerse ourselves in it.

Self Portraits, hailing from Parma, Italy, have been crafting their unique blend of music since 2010, yet this album marks their first foray into a full-length release. Drawing inspiration from progressive rock, psychedelia, and the electronic sounds of the '80s, the band consists of Marco Fulgoni on guitar and vocals, Martino Pederzolli on bass, Giorgio Cimino on keyboards, and Luigi Mazzieri on drums. Despite their long history of making music and performing live, our knowledge of them is primarily based on what's shared on their Bandcamp and Facebook pages.

Self Portrait

It's not often that a cold-call album sent to us immediately grabs our attention, but this one had us hooked from the first note, compelling us to not just give it a cursory listen but to fully immerse ourselves in it.

"Fishes Were Everywhere" delivers a remarkable 46 minutes across six tracks, blending English vocals with the unmistakable flair of Italian prog. It's a musical journey that showcases the band's talent and their ability to weave intricate soundscapes that resonate with our melodic and accessible prog ethos here at Prog Radio.

We're thrilled that Self Portraits chose to share their album with us, and it's with great pleasure that we are featuring it in our New Music rotation. Don't miss out on our "What’s New Proggy Cats" show this Monday and Tuesday, where we'll be spotlighting tracks from this exceptional album.
