'Petricolour' EP is written about the decline of our western society, its beauty, wealth and our opportunities having reached a peak and the onset of gradual decay. This is reflected in the accompanying artwork (photograph by Andreas Peter Wall) , the flowers symbolising deterioration but retaining some beauty and hope. Throughout the EP, MOTSA incorporates organic textures and sounds recorded from nature and his surroundings.
Opening track 'Petrichor', featuring Sophie Lindinger (one half of acclaimed Austrian experimental pop outfit Leyya) is a sensual delight, pulsating, intelligent rhythms and the sound of water hitting concrete signify autumn and new beginnings. It is a haunting and melancholic composition, impressively recorded on Valerio's grand piano. 'Walked This Road' is a song about history and humanity repeating the same mistakes over and over. Offering the fastest tempo of all tracks on the EP, it combines jittery electronics but with an underlying sense of calm, a spellbinding and evolving cut with warm surges of melody. 'Colours' is one of the more uplifting of those featuring on the release, its use of soft vocals by David Österle and classical melodies atop restrained beats building towards an epic, emotional climax. EP closing track 'The Storm' stays true to its title, with percussive sounds and claps creating a tense atmosphere before veering into an angelic closing half, symbolising hope for its listeners.
