"Kintsugi", the first album by SCARLED, a journey in eight tracks (to add up the three singles previously presented by the band), with which to explore the very concept behind the band's name.
SCAR-LED, union of "scar" and "led", wants to synthesize the thought that scars, understood as physical, but especially in the soul, are something not to be hidden but, rather, to be proudly displayed in as representatives of the difficulties encountered and of the growth that has occurred. In the same way, the "kintsugi" - Japanese practice which consists in repairing broken objects, applying a lacquer/glue mixed with gold dust to bring the pieces together - makes those that were previously the breaking points, the most precious part of the object itself perfectly reflecting the same concept.
The disc, although not an actual concept album, therefore has a strong recurring background theme: inner exploration and self-knowledge as a path to personal growth.
"Among elegant dark hues, dreamlike atmospheres, darkness and light, pressing psych-synt-retrowave (which could find some affinities with certain Steven Wilson sounds)"
