An introspective journey into darkness through an oblique and fascinating song form. This, and much more, in Enten Hitti's beautiful new album. There is something particularly transcendental about 'A Tutti gli Uragani che ci Passarono Accanto', the new Enten Hitti album released on 25 May 2020 by Lizard and ADN Records. It is a work that welcomes the song form, but dished out with the classic researched and experimental approach that has distinguished the band's work in recent years.
An album of "songs", to use a term used by Pierangelo Pandiscia and Gino Ape. A term, however, that is really too narrow: the production is in fact a long walk in the absolute darkness, hypnotic, sometimes lulling, sometimes disturbing, lit by the beautiful vocals of Adriana Pulejo and Simona Barbera: in a land that, at a distance, may recall the fascinating repertoire of Ustmamò, leading band of the Italian alternative 90s, Enten Hitti drag the listener into a real vortex visceral and meditative, creating a tensive power with few equals.
For forty-nine minutes and seventeen seconds, time is suspended. In the spoken word of 'Il sole nella strada' and 'Non vorrei crepare' or in the haunting 'Vento lento' and 'Dea mangiamele'. Let yourself go, let yourself be carried away in the darkness. It will be regenerating. - Fabrizio Testa (OA Plus)
