Boskovic - A Temporary Lapse of Heaven

Band Description
Boskovic is an italian singer and songwriter from Vicenza, Italy.
Artist Biography
Luca Boskovic Bonini, artistically known simply as Boskovic, was born in Vicenza on a cold December day in 1970. He inherited his passion for music from his father, who daily listened to classical music and was mostly attracted to Beethoven, Bach and Vivaldi.
When he is 12, he casually buys a Beatles long play record and is completely overwhelmed by the British pop energy and, later, by the rock and roll of the origins. With the passing of time the influence of the Beatles music, in particular of Paul McCartney, will strengthen his awareness that music is the ideal and natural setting where he can freely express his sensitivity and artistic talent. He buys himself a new guitar and as a self-taught student manages to master music well enough to be able to express his  emotions.
When he is 16 he seriously starts playing the rhythmic guitar and singing in some bands, mainly performing classical rhythm and blues, rock and roll and beat songs.
When he comes of age, Luca begins his career as a songwriter, as well,  and for many years he writes lyrics and songs mainly addressed to his family and friends. It was in 1995 that he founded the Fourback, a tribute band inspired to John Lennon and Paul McCartney, which is genuinely appreciated by the audience for the energy and friendliness it conveys.
He performs on several occasions: at private parties, in theaters, in clubs and during regional and/or national music events. In 2012 he decides the time is ripe to produce and release his first official CD, a collection of some of his most meaningful songs: “A temporary Lapse of Heaven”.
His music is mainly inspired by the British pop and rock tradition, and he turns to artists such as the Beatles, the Who and the Rolling Stones; as well, his music is inspired by the folk and jazz tradition of Donovan and Drake and by the progressive/psychedelic imprint of authors such as the Pink Floyd, the Caravan, The King Crimson, passing through the hard rock influence of the Deep Purple and the Blue Oyster Cult.
Boskovic has always tried to blend the English rock tradition with the most meaningful examples of pop music.
He is naturally talented more to writing music than putting words to his lyrics; his strong passion and taste for music has led him to write musical compositions where different styles and influences gradually surface, including orchestral sounds which give life to a production where the artist’s deep sensitivity and introspection openly reveal themselves. The result is a versatile type of music which can naturally and easily adjust to different musical settings, one for all the background film music.
According to the author’s own words :”…..music is the desire and the need to give shape to personal emotions and translate them into melodies…..music is far from any objective interpretations, anyone can identify himself in hearing a piece of music which is able to free one’s own emotional identity. The greatest satisfaction for an artist is to see the gratification in those who are listening….this is the main objective, the core which sets all the artistic production into motion….”
Press Release

Let's be honest: when you fall in love with the Beatles music, you will hardly leave it. Luca Boskovic Bonini's first effort is linked to this: quotes and references to the Beatles songbook, even to their soloist careers, can be found everywhere, as if they were friends you meet along the street. Recorded by Luca Boskovic Bonini (vocals, acoustic guitars), Nino dell'Arte (electric guitars, bass) and Nicola Castegnaro (drums) – helped by Marco Andreose (piano and keyboards) and Marco Pivato (bass), the album deserves an honorable mention for the sound and the mastering, treated by Andrea Rigoni, who gave the whole production a very high level sound.
While most of the music is full of references to the Fab four, the title is linked to the Pink Floyd world. The album opens with “Just in Town”, a rock track that features an organ from the seventies: if it were heavier it could have been a nice Costello punk song, while the chorus recalls “I'm a Believer”. With “Everyday” and “Look and Fly” we land on the Oasis ground: awesome guitar textures, typical of the 90's Melodic Rock Britpop, “Sun” shows a classical harpischord and an evocative style, with melodical progressions close to “Stairway to Heaven”.
 “Deep Moon” begins with some bells: then the song is crossed by synthesizers and a claustral organ. Symphonic ambitions with a chorus typical of the Beatles of the 1964.
“What You're Doing to Me?”: another opening with a Pink Floyd style, with the sound of an old telephone. A beautiful bass line, very deep, supports the track. “Time to Grow” is another Melodic Pop based on the keyboards, and then other references: “Looking For Some Songs” drinks at the “Hope of Deliverance” fount (McCartney, 'Off The Ground'), while “Done” reminds the famous “Why Worry?” (Dire Straits, 'Brothers in Arms') and “Good Vibrations” seems a 80's Disco/Pop song, P. Lion's “Happy Children”. The album closes with a piano ballad, “You Can Do It”: a very appropriate tribute to the Beatles, in a record that's highly influenced by their music.
