Listen: Vanishing Twin – “KRK (At Home In Strange Places)” [2019]

The first record I dove into for today’s New Music Friday was UK group Vanishing Twin with their first album for great label Fire Records, The Age of Immunology. “KRK (At Home In Strange Places” is the opener and what a perfect way to start an album. A hypnotic blend of hand percussion and spare drum kit provide a backbone for loose entrails of whispering guitar, zither, faraway piano and warping lead vocals to fill in the gaps. It’s a total Stereolab situation in the best way. I got chills hearing this song for the first time, especially as a violin nut, hearing the string arrangement on this song was fantastic. I still need to spend a bit more time with the album as a whole, but this song is one of the better album openings I’ve heard this year.
