about

Luca has been writing and performing music since the sixth grade, when he formed a band called Füss with a friend. Now 16, he started this project a little over a year ago, when he had the idea to create a record by marrying music he had been composing at the piano with several poems he had written. Over time he would refine and develop these sketches into full-fledged songs, and string these songs together with instrumental interludes. The result is an engrossing, strikingly original listening experience that owes about as much to Radiohead's In Rainbows as it does to David Bowie’s Low. Pillars, which features Luca singing and playing piano and keyboards, embodies a style influenced by rock, jazz, and classical music alike.

lyrics

Drowning in splendor we bitterly worshipped
Youth and the vast Galaxy all was your canvas
Then you were blinded by rose-colored Inno-
Sensed it when I encountered you, fateful dances -

Watch the brush lift your blood - yes it's chilling
Embracing the world in a flood - of vermillion
Take in your face you gorgeous villain

Love never cozened my soul - wasted passion-
Unknown to you in your alien mindless-
Nested among all your blissful oblivion
I breathed your fate through your ear to your head repeat

Repeat your prayer again -if you recall it
That you stay rooted in the ground -the vermin crawling
Your face never phased by sprawling time
And the portrait feels your pain
