On Tuesday, September 27th @ 2PM, Megasoup speaks with singer // multi-instrumentalist, Cathy Lucas of London based quartet, Vanishing Twin, ahead of their show at The Chapel in SF on Thursday, September 29th.
Hurricanes, organisms, vibes, bells, and percussive rallies purvey throughout the band's latest album, Ookii Gekkou, each infiltrated with influences as diverse as Piero Umiliani, Art Ensemble of Chicago and ELO among others. Indeed, even a cursory earful adds to an ever-expanding palette of sound, no mean feat for the newly-trimmed quartet of songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist Cathy Lucas, drummer Valentina Magaletti, bassist Susumu Mukai, and synth/guitar player Phil MFU, this reduction resulting in no fewer ideas and even bigger steps.
Vanishing Twin is a conundrum in these fragmenting times; familiar, yet different; appealing to this world, but from another, parallel one.
