There's a mystery to Vanishing Twin ' from their name to the multitude of sounds that inhabit their music. They don't sound like many but they hint at plenty. 'Ookii Gekkou' (Japanese for Big Moonlight) is the sound of ordinary life under a different set of rules, a record conceived and created in dark times ' a sort of dream catcher for all the madness of the past year. Vanishing Twin explore new ground on 'Ookii Gekkou' incorporating elements of afrofunk, outer jazz and avant-garde, all while referencing Sun Ra to Alice Coltrane, Martin Denny to Morricone, Can's Holger Czukay to meditative Gamelan, or The Free Design, to library music of the late '60s and early '70s. Locked into their strangely-accessible groove is a history of 'other' sound, a crafted hauntology that evinces something completely new. Vanishing Twin is a conundrum in these fragmenting times; familiar, yet different; appealing to this world, but from another, parallel one.
