Sonic Sight's debut album Anthropology is a Progressive Rock concept album made with the meticulous care, fiery inspiration and total lack of respect for convention the genre deserves.
With Anthropology the theme is set for USA, some time in the future. An economic bubble of unprecedented proportions bursts, and civil war breaks out. Adam - our main protagonist, becomes a refugee when he escapes from the war to India.
- "I was inspired by the refugee crisis in Europe and had an idea to turn the perspective around," says Finn Arild. "Putting a typical western character in this situation, puts the suffering these people are going through in another light. Then I had to add some more to the story, of course - stuff happens when Adam arrives in India that probably don't happen to most refugees".
The music can be described as ... well - Progressive Rock Music - meaning; a journey through different styles and moods, rich on creativity, humor and not much respect for genre format conventions. If you are familiar with the genre, you might recognize some influence from old-school symphonic rockers like Genesis and Yes as well as more contemporary neo-prog.
