      Vanishing Twin


      Vanishing Twin are a heterogeneous crowd, no two members are the same nationality or speakthe same language. They are would be doyens of Esperanto if it had only caught on; galacticcitizens if it were an option at the passport office. They are scientists and creators excited byrituals and telepathy, book-wormed into action.Dressed for the closing night of the original Dadaist nightclub Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, theysound like they are playing jazz at the end of the worlds end. They are like nothing else.Challenging, morphing, eclectic, ethereal engaging.Their new album, The Age Of Immunology, was recorded in spaces reclaimed for theirexperiments. There are found sounds, Euro ambience, repurposed technologies, the sea. Itsmotorik, symphonic. Different.The sounds you hear are otherworldly, created by scavengers, hunters, gatherers, deft at pingingmilk bottles, caressing the Varispeed, and speaking in multi-lingual monologues, punctuated bystrings and things. The Vinyl Factory has likened them to fellow sonic adventurers Sun Ra, EnnioMorricone and Stereolab.The futuristic worlds on Immunology are both ominous and tantalising, like staring into Kaaseyes or spinning yourself dizzy, imagining your brain detach slightly from your skull Loud & QuietThe band formed in 2015 around a shared love of strangeness. Their first LP, Choose Your OwnAdventure, came out the following year. It was a personal mythology told through music,philosophy, biology and folklore, and an invitation to use stories to make sense of ourselves.Theres a consultation with the egg oracle, a foetal encounter with a vanished twin, a ruminationon the cyclical nature of life. The Quietus called it a heady voyage across time and space thatsurprises at every turn.In 2017, the mostly instrumental Dream By Numbers was darker, more abstract, and tested theground for a new improvisational synergy.2018s Magic And Machines was recorded in one long quiet take in a mill in Sudbury. Released oncassette, as part of a series of experimental recordings not originally intended for release, it servesinstead as a window into the bands R&D.Those mill recordings formed the basis of The Age Of Immunology. Crafted from improvisationsand carefully devised arrangements, the pieces took on new shapes they bent and swallowedshots of French Chanson and analogue candour to make a hybrid and incongruous whole thathums joyously.
