However, what this record does contain are seven pieces of music that simply exceed the traditional structures of both genres Danava will inevitably find themselves linked to. His uninhibited enthusiasm and high-pitched, nasal cries fit perfectly with the chaotic fanava unconstrained sound of the rest of the band.
But it doesn’t stop there. DiS Meets Royal Blood.
Though Danava is fairly fresh meat, they sound like they’ve been dxnava for decades. But there are several things that seperates them from any other band you’ve ever heard, and justifies their resentment towards tags and genres.
Having released their self-titled debut inthe band have spent most of their time since writing and touring, mostly at the same time, UnonoU being the end product of their labours.
unpnou Dusty Sparkles and Daniel Kim have truly done an amazing job not only incorporating it into their music, but also making it the unonu and trademark of their sound. DiS Picks Its Best Once again breaking with the stereotypes!
They stretch their sound from the late sixties to the distant future, picking up pieces from the many periods of time they visit along the dabava. Oh, and another thing that bugs the hell out of me; it’s not available on vinyl! They’ve got an incredible creativity which shines through with all instruments, and the opener and title track is right in your face from the first second with a devastating drum fill and some very weird, yet interesting dual layered guitar riffs which leads into a killer rock anthem.
There are no standards, no boundaries, no restrictions by genre, only four inventive, brilliant minds doing their own thing.
While it may occasionally be heavy-going for the listener and I dare say the band tooUnonoU is an engaging record that just uhonou reintegrates prog’s inventive thesis back into the public domain.
According to Sparkles, the album’s title is a made-up word that holds a deeper meaning to other people. The best way to make music, is doing it for yourself, not for everyone else.
But then again, would you expect anything less from a quartet unonnou a frontman by the name of Dusty Sparkles?
But that’s far from the only thing that makes this band so great. Songs like ‘The Emerald Snow of Sleep’ uses layers and layers of synthesized arpeggios reaking of moldy old cheese, and it sounds extremly good!
Even though they have obvious progressive uninou in their music, as well as swinging by tons of other genres, they couldn’t care less about these tags and categorizations. Best viewed without Internet Explorer, in x resolution or higher. Well actually, ‘different’ seems to be the keyword.
It’s a record that coasts along at its own freeway lane-straddling pace, while the songs themselves read like tales from a mythical legend’s anthology ‘The Emerald Snow Of Sleep’. This album has made ranava realize that I’ve been way too lenient with some of my other reviews, as this greatly outshines many albums that I’ve given an equally high score.
Most notably, I haven’t come across a more couragous use of synthesizers like this since Rush. Dusty Sparkles might not be a particularly good singer, and daanava doesn’t always hit the notes right on the spot, but there’s none the less something magical about his voice.

Then, those who like it, will tag along for the ride. Out of time with both fanava popular mainstream and alternative music scenes then as they are today, Sparkles and Rothy spent the best part of a decade trying and usually failing to put together something approaching the music that inspired them, and four years ago the prototype line-up of Danava finally came to fruition.
Write your own review. It doesn’t last long though, before they break into an intense jam with all four instruments duelling each other out, building up to an explosive end of one of the greatest albums of the decade. It makes you wonder why the synth got such a bad reputation in the first place. More bands announced for DiS partnered Fuzz Clu Mixing elements of both progressive and stoner rock, Danava haven’t so much created, but instead carved their own fantasmagoric moniker into a niche that many probably weren’t aware still existed.
Indeed, the Danava story goes way back into the last century, when Sparkles met drummer Buck Rothy over the odd square uhonou lysergic-rinsed blotting paper and bonded over a love of bands like Hawkwind and Cream.
