Colored Copies Are Limited / Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Marleen Nilsson and Anders Hansson, Death and Vanilla utilize vintage musical equipment such as vibraphone, organ, mellotron, tremolo guitar and moog, to emulate the sounds of 60s/70s soundtracks, library music, German Krautrock, French Ye-ye pop and '60s psych. They revel in the warmth of older analogue instruments to create a more organic sound, each loose wire and off-kilter noise adding to the rich atmosphere.
Death and Vanilla originally released their eponymous debut LP in 2012. It radiates sophisticated retro-futuristic psych-pop whilst channeling their passion for hauntology, library, krautrock and radiophonic music. Mastered by Linus Sjölund at RED audio it was initially released on French label Hands In The Dark which like their EP sold out on pre-order. Fire Records will now release the album on black/yellow splatter vinyl in May 2016 alongside the From Above 7" and their self-titled debut EP.
"Their music variously recalls the eerie, haunted ambience of Angelo Badalamenti/Julee Cruise's Twin Peaks soundtrack, Stereolab/Broadcast's experimental vision of 50s lounge muzak/exotica and French 60s pop, or the narcotic country-noir of Mazzy Star." - The Guardian
