What we see and live is real? Or is it the result of a dream?
It is a concept that has deep roots in human history, investigated by various thinkers over the centuries and in various forms of science and art. Today that doubt is even more pronounced. We exist in an era in which digitization and virtual relationships have modified, if not replaced, the rules of social life. Is what we therefore live a reality or a great illusion? With Fingere di essere, Sinezamia ask questions about this doubt, especially regarding human relations; it does not give answers because what we say is either true or false? “We are like the dreamer who dreams and then lives inside the dream”.
Fingere di essere has a fresh and modern sound, with veins and influences ranging from many genres and musical ages, from Joy Division to Black Sabbath and Alice in Chains. On the other hand, the Italian vocals brings back the 90’s sound of the group Timoria. The album is entirely composed and arranged by the band and was created from a long process of experimentation that involved the sounds and structures of the songs, as well as an evaluation of the most suitable lyrics, an important aspect of the the band’s imagery. The process has seen the creation of various versions of the songs, such as lyrics, vocal lines and instrumental solutions, all jealously preserved and recorded during rehearsal sessions.
The artwork for the album was extracted from a detail of the Berlin Wall, in which the faces of different people represent the multiplicity of human beings and the appearance that can be offered to the gaze of others, further emphasized by the social and physical division that the Wall itself represents and has represented in the history of humanity.
