Death And Vanilla - Are You A Dreamer?
New album from the Malmo-based trio of Marleen Nilsson, Anders Hansson and Magners Bodin, following 2015's critically-acclaimed To Where The Wild Things Are.
Are You A Dreamer? exposes the band's love of all things retro with a nod to everything from Fun Boy Three to Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Contonou, while still roaming somewhere between an ambient Eno and Cocteau Twins at a late-night soiree. A unique, individual sound: Longer, more plush and pampered; more hypnotic and haunting. Electronic melancholy at its most evocative, riddled with super-memorable motifs and melodies that nestle in reflective echo.
Prior to recording Are You A Dreamer?, they scored several soundtracks, that process undoubtedly influencing the new album’s dreamlike euphoria. Built with added mellotron and affected electric guitar, the songs are longer; more plush and pampered; more hypnotic and haunting.
“Lush and enveloping, reminiscent of Curt Boettcher and Margo Guryan” - The Wire
“Fantastically eerie.” - Clash
“Swedish exponents of dreamily lovely psych and lush, late-60s-style baroque pop.” - The Guardian
