Imagine an old-fashioned jazz club, dark and filled with smoke. A singer, five top notch musicians, breathtaking improvisations. Now transpose the same scene into the year 3147! SKNAIL, a Swiss composer and producer, has done just that and presents a 2nd album of visionary, organic jazz, some sort of a musical sci-fi novel, in which the « not-quite-humans-anymore » play the music of their ancestors, digging it up from some faraway place in their memory. The warmth of the acoustic instruments confronts cold electronics and takes the listener on a journey into the jazz of the distant future, delicate and pure. From their futuristic and ultra-technological world the Snail Charmers are transmitting an important message with the help of Nya’s voice.
