"Recently I discovered the music by Le Masque, which is in Alternative pop/rock genre.
Le Masque is a solo project of multi-talented musician, composer and producer, Gaetano Serra….Here, I present the music video for the album title track Spiral. The video is very artistically crafted by himself.
The music and the visual art together for this song, it gives me the feel of Jim Morrison in a David Lynch film. Le Masque is surprising, hard to pin down, sexy and sharp. If you listen through the EP, you will feel all these words somewhere along the songs. In 2015, watch out for Le Masque! (Teri Morris, 15th Jan 2015; Music Matters GB)

“Le Masque is the project by a Franco-Italian dude who roams around Bethnal Green in London, by the name of Gaetano Serra, with some dreamy psychedelic jams we couldn’t help but share with you dear readers. So go forth and spin “Time Goes By” pronto. Grassimiiiile” Sodwee,
"Good songwriter here, fine tunes...Delightfully difficult to pin down (that’s a good thing). This is well worth your time, lush synths, fine textures, bit of experimental colour in there bringing the fine songs to life. Clever details, clever songs, something really good here, slight psychedelic feel loitering around the edges... Now if there’s any record label types out there, then maybe they want to be glancing in this direction? Just good songs, breezy songs, delightful details, little twists, uplifting intelligently clever considered pop songs that are never obvious.” Sean Worall, Organ magazine
Gaetano, a talented Italian musician visited us after his recording in studio and he brought one piece to listen. Good soft sound." (Damo Suzuki-CAN, e-report, May 10)
