ILLMATRIX is our new album released by Quinto Mondo bureaucrats of Artetetra! Get the limited edition CD here:

ILLMATRIX is a glitchy detour from Rainbow Island’s colourful sonic chromatisms toward a win95.exe non-figurative and unorthodox cartography of exotic, alien undiscovered languages and dimensions of sound, which boundaries developing the project’s saga are constantly and obsessively redrawn by Rainbow Island themselves by means of grimey sewer-like grooves and staggering concrete, urban sound design.

In this transitional new album, featuring darker, heavier sonorities in regard to the ones the project is known for, the band confronts with a physical and compositional diaspora, having almost all the four members living in different countries in between Italy, the U.K. and Taiwan, thus slowly building the sound and concept of their new album on the basis of a back and forth process of files and information piling in a non-linear order, in an ever growing complex stack of stems, even influencing their complex archeofuturist mythology to obscure experiments of geolocalizations in sound and parallel, overlapping timelines.

Emerged from a fortuitous counter-degrado triangulation of Roma Sud vibes, Tuscan grind-vaping and Veneto agro-mathemagical drumming, Rainbow Island have established their craft as pioneering explorers of sonic unrealities yet to come. ... more
