Dalindèo’s second full-length album Soundtrack for the Sound Eye sees the group moving towards a more cinematic sphere of sound. The Helsinki-based sextet proves that they are ready to match the high expectations brought up by their previous full-length Open Scenes.
An imagined soundtrack not directly linked to any one context or location, the set comes across as a remarkable collection of intensive moods with an astonishingly wide range. The band’s multi-layered soundscape hints at Afro-Beat, Soul, Balkan flavors and even Desert Blues, while still keeping true to composer Pöyhönen’s search for the group’s own, and constantly evolving, brand of Postmodern Jazz in the 21st century.
