Inverness are an alternative rock band hailing from Chile. Formed in 2007 and coming from cities like Punta Arenas, Curicó and Santiago, the band members are: Rodrigo Jarque (vocals, guitar and piano), Washinton Abrigo (guitar, sampler), Ángelo Agurto (bass) y Rodrigo Soto (drums, glockenspiel). Inverness released their first single 'Escarabajo' in 2009. Aired on radiostations like Rock & Pop, Sonar, Horizonte and Radio Uno, the song and the video helped the band find a place in the small alternative chilean music scene. Starting with their lead singer's solo album Monstruos bajo la cama (2006), the band continued developing the sound experimentation on their 2009 album Illuminaciones. Their sonic pursuit has been acclaimed by specialised magazines like Rolling Stone, Rockaxis, Emol and Extravaganza! Journalists have described it as "a music that mixes ethereal guitars, electronics, noise and a powerful narrative atmosphere" stating that Illuminaciones contained "unrecognisable textures that support a stylistic originality only rarely seen in Chile" It wouldn't be until 2010 that the movie 'The life of Fish' (by reknown director Matías Bize) allowed them to gather a wider attention from the press and the audience by including two tracks from Illuminaciones on it: 'Nubes' and 'Illuminaciones'. The film features them on screen performing an acoustic version of 'Nubes' that would be included in the film's original soundtrack album, launched by LeRockPsicophonique on july 2010. The film is now running for the selection of the Oscars 2011, representing Chile. Inverness' work has been largely commented and reviewed both by critics and listeners in Chile and overseas. Thier music has inspired film and theatre directors and choreographers and because of Rodrigo Jarque's previous work on humanitarian issues, their music has served in radio and TV commercials for the United Nation's High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Chile, promoting awareness about the condition of refugees that arrive to their country. Inverness are about to release their latest album called 'Fuegos Distantes' (Distant Fires) and are embarking on a small summer tour in the south of Chile from december on.
