If you name your band after Viennese Art Nouveau painter Gustav Klimt and the year of his death, you do give an inkling of what it is you want to convey with your music. Probably Italy's most renowned Indie-Rock export, this band inimitably conjoins the melancholy of The Cure and Tears For Fears, the playfulness of Dredg, and the yearning of classic U2 recordings with the euphoria of a Post-Rock crescendo. This sounds unique? It is unique! With their albums, Klimt 1918 create incomparable musical wide-screen experiences, radiating unaffected emotions and authenticity at every moment. Thus, they maintain a niche in contemporary rock music that is very much their own.
