Death And Vanilla Death And Vanilla EP on Limited Edition Colored 12" Vinyl + Download
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.
The first release for the Swedish psychedelic dream-pop band, their self-titled EP caught the attention of French label Hands In The Dark. They originally released the EP in 2010 on CD in an extremely limited edition run of 100 copies. The Death and Vanilla EP will be reissued on blue vinyl to match the cover alongside the From Above 7" and their self-titled debut long player.
"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
