Oblique pop ensemble Vanishing Twin formed in 2015 over a love of unusual instruments, freaky records and the irresistble seducton of A Good Groove. Founder Orlando, afer releasing a string of conceptual cassetes on her own RAM* label, put a band together and named it for her other self, a twin absorbed and internalised in utero when they were both stll a cluster of cells. She is joined by drummer Valentna Magalet (Tomaga, Shit and Shine, Raime, Neon Neon), bassist Susumu Mukai (A.K.A. primitve electronic producer Zongamin), library music head Phil M.F.U. (Man From Uranus) on strange sounds, and flm-maker and visual artst Elliot Arndt on fute and percussion. Last year the band teamed up with producer Malcolm Cato (Heliocentrics, Gaslamp Killer) and wrapped their songs in layers of otherness and sub-aquatc obscurity. The resultng debut LP will be released on Soundway in September 2016. Championed by Gilles Peterson, The Quietus and Wire, the band played widely in 2015, conjuring otherworldly grooves and esoteric euphony in a show that is equal parts crafed sound and improvised delirium.
