Debut album by a Italian psychedelic rock band Citrus Citrus.
Citrus Citrus was born in Padova in 2020 as an idea by guitarists Lorenzo Badin and Luca Zantomio, joined after some months by bassist Enrico Maragno and drummer Marco Buffetti. Citrus Citrus started as an instrumental project based on several jams and past explorations in psychedelic music, but eventually found its final form when joined by singer and producer Thomas Powell.
'Albedo Massima' revolves around the idea of metamorphosis: myths and legends from ancient Greek and Latin cultures contain the roots of our present feelings and obsession as humans and western societies. Along with the content of these mythologies and their migrations across the Mediterranean Sea and beyond, the concept of metamorphosis is reinforced by the Pomelo (the citrus in the cover art and symbol of the band), one of the three originary citruses from which current species have evolved, both in natural and human purposes.
The title is a play on words between botany and science: pomelos have a thick albedo under their peel, which is usually discarded but has distinct scent and texture; also the maximum albedo ("Albedo Massima" in Italian) is registered when all incident light is reflected by a surface. 'Sunday Morning In The Sun,' the opening track and first single from the album, follows the reflections of the sun as they dissolve into the space around them as well as 'Echo,' the nymph whose body dissolves and whose voice eternally lingers in the landscape.
