Vienna Circle's White Clouds is the work of two brothers; Paul Davis, who plays guitars,(which he does very well I might add) piano & keyboards, plus provides vocals, and his brother Jack Davis is on bass, piano and also backing vocals. The duo are joined by Russell Wilson on drums. White Clouds is a concept album "which dates back to pre 1914 and follows the life of a young British man who moves from the south coast of England to the centre of Berlin a few months before the First World War breaks out".
Vienna Circle's music has a tendency to the lighter side of melodic progressive rock, but it's not that mellow sort of music that does its best to put you to sleep. White Clouds is a winner with songs such as "Falling", which feature a great combined performance, and quite engaging guitar, there are also some great solos elsewhere on White Clouds, like on "Stars Of May".
The Davis brothers are inspired by bands and artists like The Beatles, Pink Floyd and Neal Morse. Well, like those whom inspired them, Vienna Circle certainly are talented, and White Clouds is a refreshing debut.
