Death And Vanilla From Above on Limited Edition Colored 7" Vinyl
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 followed up their first LP with more melodic 60's psych-pop in the form of From Above. Originally released in 2013 the 7" came out on hand numbered red vinyl on Great Pop Supplement and was limited to 400 copies. It has been repressed twice each time selling out very quickly. Fire Records is pleased to reissue the two-track From Above 7" on blue vinyl alongside Death And Vanilla's debut self-titled album and 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
