    ,, Czech synth sorceress Never Sol’s anthem for freedom,....If her previous works rely on the delicacy of her voice and more simple musical arrangements, ‘Leon’ is Never Sol’s masterpiece, spotlighting her deep, intoxicating voice, enhanced by complex, orchestra-like synthesisers.’’(The Calvert Journal)






about


A billowing, diaphonos (sic) fabric, backlit by the brightest moon. We change skins and remain the same. Never Sol gently breathes these truths into layers of voice and synthetic instrumentation with thin fingers pulling at the whispy tendrils branching from our pulsing muscular motors.’’ (Tom Tom Magazine)


East-european synth sorceress Never Sol creates melancholic songs that are based on layered analog synth soundscapes, dreamy melodies shrouded in tons of reverb with thick yet delicate vocals. Melting in ambient surfaces but cutting deep with distorted and noisy elements . A strong connection to songwriting, intricate chord progressions, synths and voice are the cornerstones of her musical output. At times, her songs veer into David Lynch territory: full-bodied, strong and eerie. Darkly serene, modest and elegantly captivating. Never Sol has recorded her second LP Chamaleo in her cozy attic studio in Prague surrounded by plants and wood, using only hardware synthesizers and vocals.

CHAMALEO /album/

LISTEN HERE
Sara Vondraskova makes experimental pop music as Never Sol- lush , intricately layered soundscapes that confront the darkness and perils of our everyday lives. Her music is dynamic in form- sometimes volatile with abrasive beats, more often tender and trepidatious- but its mood is consistently melancholy, haunted even.” (Indie Current)

By using traditional synth sounds the tracks are building their atmosphere very consistently. They are playing with fresh sounding samples, layered dreamy soundscapes and electronic coldness is brightened by mysterious vocals. Never Sol invests much fantasy and the recording requires imagination from the listener as well.” (Headliner


The human condition is earthly and ethereal. It’s a balance that is delicate, intricate and rich. Memories echo in chambers building our identities with epic sweeps of emotion. We change skins and remain the same. Never Sol gently breathes these truths into layers of voice and synthetic instrumentation with thin fingers pulling at the whispy tendrils branching from our pulsing muscular motors. The songs, like the wonderfully surreal collages by Michaela Karásková that accompany the physical album, offer recognizable pieces in a novel construction. With Chameleo, Sára Vondrášková, the Prague-based writer/producer/composer/singer behind this exquisite music, creates a fully conceptualized experience of mortal fervor. A billowing, diaphonos (sic) fabric, backlit by the brightest moon.” (Tom Tom Magazine)

“’CHAMALEO’ gives you plenty of room for interpretations, depending as much on what your ears focus on as on your current state of mind. So each listen might take you into a completely different dream.
