about

"A small world full of wonderful and interesting things"

Childhood and its memories – these have always been important topics for Gianluca Divirgilio. On his debut album “On A Sad Sunny Day”, the mastermind of Arctic Plateau came to terms with his relationship to that period of his life and his memories of a wholly different perception of the world. With “The Enemy Inside”, the Italian musician continues this wallowing and yearning, but he also contrasts it with the realities of adult life in order to criticize the loss of childlike innocence and the blunting of human emotions.

In musical terms, Divirgilio pushes even deeper forward into the realm he entered with his debut “On A Sad Sunny Day” in 2009: dreamy Post Rock meets melancholic singer/songwriter elements, and sometimes this mixture is dragged down to earth by crushing guitars. Hence, the conflict between the world of childhood and adult life is reflected in the instrumentation and the arrangements as well.
