Neonsol is a Danish/Canadian project made up of three members: Nina Io and Jesper Io – both handling live synths and vocals, lyrics and melodies, and Frédéric Scarfone, well known for his work with Memmaker, Iszoloscope and Norad handling production, sound design, live drums/effects, and additional song-writing.
Neonsol began life in Copenhagen in 2009 with Nina and Jesper writing and performing the band’s early tracks.
The duo made their first liveappearance in Trondheim, Norway in August 2010 being joined in 2012 by Frédéric to complete their lineup.
They premiered live as a three-piece in Copenhagen at the Cyberworld XX album release party in October 2012 and in April 2013, the band played their second Danish live show at the prestigious Club Braincorp’s 8 Year Anniversary event.
In July 2014, Neonsol debuted with their single release Citadel, entering the German Electronic Web Chart at number 15 and quickly gaining positive reviews and great feedback from fans and peers alike.
Featuring Nina and Jesper’s distinctive and hypnotic vocals, thoughtful lyrics and well-crafted production work, the band’s music is best described as dreamy, dark and melodic electro that fuses diverse elements of industrial, synthpop, EBM and numerous other genres to create the Neonsol sound.
In October 2014, the band’s debut album Ecliptic was released via AnalogueTrash.
Containing ten tracks (plus two bonus remixes on the physical version by Iszoloscope and Leaether Strip), Ecliptic perfectly presents Neonsol’s versatile style; shifting seamlessly between dreamy electronic pop and more dancefloor-focussed industrial beats with ease, all the while revealing new complexities and depths with every listen.
