£18.99 – Standard Crystal Clear Coloured Vinyl LP

Formed in Malmö, Sweden by Marleen Nilsson and Anders Hansson, and along with Magners Bodin, Death And Vanilla utilise 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.

Their latest offering, Are You A Dreamer?, is the follow up to the critically-acclaimed To Where The Wild Things Are (2015) and their haunting collection of soundtracks in between. Exposing the trio’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, mixing mellotron and affected guitar with a refined rhythm. Electronic melancholy at its most evocative, riddled with super-memorable motifs and melodies that nestle in reflective echo.

“Swedish exponents of dreamily lovely psych and lush, late-60s-style baroque pop” – The Guardian

 The Limited Edition Indies Only Transparent Pink Coloured Vinyl LP is lovingly packaged in a deluxe grey textured board sleeve, whilst the Standard Crystal Clear Coloured Vinyl LP comes with a reverse board sleeve.
