"Red Nights"

From SabaSaba

SabaSaba rose out of Turin’s long, dark winter nights, when the city is at its most isolated and shrouded in mystery. These newest additions to the Maple Death imprint’s family reflect Turin’s black magic traditions. The trio of Tommaso Bonfilio (tape loops, drum machine, organ), Andrea Marini (electronics, flute, guitar, bells) and Gabriele Maggiorotto (drums, percussion, effects) describe themselves as “night phantoms embarking on a digital dust adventure set in a world punctuated by Ballard’s dreams and William Gibson’s visions”.
