More About us

Perfect Cluster

We are Perfect Cluster

“The band takes its music to higher level, daring yet convincing. Exploring new soundscapes, fearlessly brakes the rules without overdoing it, freely blending rock and electronic music in an irresistible flow of consciousness. A new dimension in rock music, enriched by the encounter of distant and unusual sounds. Flow is a groundbreaker, a storm that pulls away. Let yourself be pulled.” - Rockit

“Everything in this album appears different from the so called alternative sound of the Italian scene: the time signature changes derive from progressive rock, the guitars have a strong, aggressive personality and blend perfectly with the electronic sounds, the drums have a strong beat, continuously available to all the tempo changes, the effected vocals raise from a somehow disturbing and dramatic fog, doubtlessly matching the daily dose of paranoia of our time.” - La Repubblica

“After The Suicide” is an extremely dark tune that closes a highly enjoyable album, well played and with an excellent production.” - Buscadero

“No doubt that this is one of the best indie records of this year. The band leaves its comfort zone to successfully blend very distant musical influences.” - Distorsioni

Perfect Cluster was founded in 2009 with the intention of playing live electronic music and to experiment with synthesisers, unconventional guitar sounds, effected vocals and textural drumming.
The band’s sound is heavily influenced by Depeche Mode, Massive Attack, Kraftwerk and Nine Inch Nails, retaining its own personality through the use of odd time signatures and extended compositions and arrangements, trying to blend catchy melodies with avant-gard like harmonies and song structures. The members of the band all have a strong individual musical background, and it is in such difference that the band’s music gains a unique sound, a tight and contaminated crossover between rock and electronic music.

In 2012 the first album of the band “Noise Pleasure” was released and the Irish label Nippi Records.
During the following years the bands plays several concerts in Italy and United Kingdom. In spring 2013 they present the project “Perfect Cluster & Orchestra”, rearranging the first album’s tunes to play along with a Cello & Percussion orchestra conducted by the Maestro Francesco Fontana.
In September 2017 the album “Flow”, the band’s second full length recording, was released and reviewed by several important journalistic publications in the Italian rock scene, such as Rocket, La Repubblica and Buscadero.
The album’s single is “Speed” and its videoclip has been premiered on the webzine Impatto Sonoro.
During “Flow”’s recording phase, the band has augmented its lineup with two new members: Irene Pareti (background and lead vocals, additional keyboards) and Francesco Lazzeri (acoustic and electronic drums).
In April 2018 the new incarnation of the band embarked in a U.K. mini tour that has reached the Fiddler’s Elbow in Camden, historical venue of the London scene.

Later the band has performed several concerts in Italy. A special two day gig within the event Lumiere in the town of San Gimignano featured new improvised music by the band. The material from these concerts is currently being reviewed and expanded and will be soon recorded and released as the album’s third full length album.
